Leaders in Java and Open Source Recruitment

J People has become a US and European leader in niche technology recruitment by adopting a unique and innovative approach that relies on our Recruitment Consultants, Specialist Resourcers and Sourcers to differentiate between the best on the market and the best in the market. Our team is proud to approach, attract and interact with the very best professionals, delivering excellence in Java and Open Source technologies across 12 European countries, plus the US, using world-class search and selection techniques (including market mapping, candidate pool generation and networking) to find candidates unobtainable to other recruitment companies. We proactively update our database and leverage existing contact details to anticipate the needs of our clients, readying a list of suitable candidates before we are even contacted.

Client and Candidate Perspective

Our multi-lingual, technically proficient recruitment team follows a strict internal process that fosters a close relationship by prioritising the career aspirations of our candidates. This puts us in a unique position to understand the relevance of their experience, motivations and personality type. At J People we endeavour to meet every client face-to-face to establish business requirements, answer questions and set clear interview and hiring milestones. By defining these expectations we become a bespoke IT recruiter and representative of the client. We are serious about our status as a trusted recruitment partner and adhere to all modern recruitment regulations. Understanding the client and candidate perspective is a cornerstone of successful recruitment and the reason why we retain so many of our clients. Alongside this, J People are one of the most comprehensive contingency recruiters in the industry, providing an array of optional and complimentary services as standard.

Standard Services

  • Engaged on a No-Placement-No-Fee condition
  • Tangible performance indicators to track our progress
  • Advertisements on specialist and third-party subscription job boards
  • The promise to deliver 3 contract candidates within 24/48 hours (dependent on workload)
  • Guaranteed compliance with local taxation, social security, immigration and employment regulationsInnovative e-timesheet systems that include:
    • Multicurrency processing
    • Hard and soft document support (online, excel, paper and fax)
    • Password-less timesheet sign in via an encrypted link (optional)
    • SMS and E-mail notifications

Optional Services

Besides our standard service, J People also runs two elective schemes: Priority Recruitment Timetable and Exclusivity. Both are tried and tested programmes that help us maximise our resources:

Priority Recruitment Timetable

Implemented at no additional cost but demanding a heightened level of commitment from the client, this programme helps our consultants to justify putting other requirements on hold while they focus on your assignment.


In the event that our consultants can work with you on an exclusive basis, we offer a preferential fee structure. This entails a Priority Recruitment Timetable as well as a period of exclusivity lasting the duration of the timetable.

100% quality candidates

As Java and Open Source specialists, we offer a consultancy approach with a deeper experience, vertical market knowledge and proprietary relationships that are not available from other recruiters. We always deliver a search and selection level of service even within our No-Placement-No-Fee structure. The quality of our candidates is the reason clients choose to work with us and the reason why they return to us time and again to meet their Java/Open Source recruitment needs.

We are so confident about providing 100% quality candidates that we implement a reparation scheme. If clients ever accept a candidate who fails to meet requirements, we will return their money.

Proven Success

From contact to contract, J People provides dedicated internal training and follows an original and continuously evolving process to ensure that clients’ needs are met on time and within budget. Our executive search service and permanent and contract recruitment is just a small part of what we do. As a result, we have achieved Java and Open Source recruitment success with a number of business leaders, including a top-10 European consultancy firm in Norway, a leading Microsoft Gold Partner in Germany with more than US$1 billion in revenue and an independent IT and business service provider that ranks itself within the top-5 globally.
