James Darley


James Darley has been working in Graduate Recruitment for just under 20 years and is recognized by his colleagues and the industry as one of the most significant leaders in the sector.

James has been part of the Senior Leadership of Teach First from the very early days and for 13 seasons headed up their Graduate Recruitment Division. During that time he recruited over 10,000 graduates, delivered over 800% growth and was honored with the Founding Ambassador status having significantly supported the charity's development and significance in the sector.

In late 2016 James spotted an opportunity to add more value to societal injustice by setting up the charity ‘Transform’ to represent all 5 programmes recruiting top talent into the most needed jobs in society (Teach First, Frontline, Police Now, Think Ahead & Unlocked).

“Having spent the last 15 years helping those most disadvantaged to reach their potential, I can safely say Royal National Children’s SpringBoard Foundation is literally transforming lives.”
