London, UK, 28 April 2022: JobAdder, an innovative B2B, cloud-based SaaS platform designed to help make recruiting more efficient and joyful for everyone, has announced that James Payne, a veteran in the recruitment and SaaS software space, is joining the company as its first Vice President of EMEA.

He started his career in recruitment with Michael Page Group, spending six years managing several teams across the organisation. Some of his other leadership roles include stints at SaaS companies like BoardClic AB and Pure360, where he successfully developed productive teams, drove growth and scaled businesses up from the start-up level.
