Founder & Coach

James Johnson

We came from across the industry; agency entrepreneurs, learning and development, inhouse talent and people.

For one mission – To nurture what experienced recruiters are truly capable of.


To be the community and platform independent recruiters trust for support and development.

  • By building an open and engaged community we unleash learnings, support networks and general good vibes.
  • In doing this, recruiters will gain the confidence to be independent and seek a partner to go on that journey.
  • Once connected we become motivated to grow their business and improve the platform according to their needs

Traditionally there were 3 ways to move in the recruitment industry as an experienced recruiter

  • Try another agency, still billing for others
  • Start your own and have the risk and isolation
  • Go in house, and lose the potential earnings

But there is a fourth way, with District4 you can get the best of all worlds.

Take your first steps to independence by joining a collection of recruiters who are also on the verge of outgrowing their current place.
