The team behind our success

​​

Since we launched in 2014, our people and our culture have continuously set us apart from the competition.

The MarkJames team has grown from two people in a garden shed to a global organisation, located across three countries.
No matter what, our attitude towards internal recruitment remains the same:
bring in great people and offer them all the tools, support and training they need to become truly excellent market specialists.

Every member of our team embodies the values of MarkJames - integrity, accountability, partnership & passion!
