What JBM employees think

I love how much the leadership cares about their team. Real time, energy and attention is placed into thinking about how best to help the team to have impact in their work, enjoy their work and develop.

Unlimited Holidays are life-changing - although it doesn't mean that I necessarily take more holidays than the norm, it does take the stress away of having the prioritize different holidays (wellness time off vs family hols vs a nice long weekend away with my partner/friends vs taking the odd time off for weddings on Fridays... ) ... I can do all of them!

JBM is the most flexible company I've ever worked for or know of, the leadership trust us and give us flexibility and support.

JBM honestly couldn't be more flexible. I've never had so much freedom and support at the same time, in my entire career and it's so refreshing - I can't imagine ever working in a different way again!

About us

Founded in a kitchen in Clapham in 2012, JBM is now an award winning Executive Search firm that is trusted by Tier 1 VC’s and high profile Founders to scale some of the most innovative and purpose driven companies in the world.

We’re proud to have grown organically through word of mouth, off the back of the results we’ve achieved and the reputation we’ve cultivated over the years. And we're also lucky enough to have a world class Board of Advisors which includes Entrepreneurs (Kresse Wesling CBE), Scaleup executives from companies such as TIER Mobility and world class Investors (Cleo Sham from Stride VC).

Alongside placing executives and future leaders into a mix of Ops, Strategy, Growth and Commercial roles, we are also passionate about DE&I, advancing social mobility, and are always looking to give back to our community.

That’s why we are proud partners with Beam, a Tech for Good Startup who help the homeless get into employment and homes, and Making the Leap, a charity providing training for young people from low-income families.

Giving back is also why we started various videos series (e.g. COO Secrets & CoS Secrets) and our 40 Minute Mentor podcast, where we share mentorship and insights from industry legends, including: Unicorn Founders, Purpose driven Entrepreneurs, world renown Investors & gold winning Olympians. To tune into the podcast, head here.

Flexible working at JBM

We're a remote-first, flexible company.

We have an office space in Bermondsey where we try and get together once or twice a week, for some team face-time, but we're completely flexible and the team can choose when they want to come in. Our team also share a passion for travelling, so if they want to jet off for a couple of weeks of working in the sun and make everyone jealous with their new Zoom background - we certainly won't stand in the way.

We also offer unlimited annual leave, as well as teambuilding days and holidays.

Approach to diversity & inclusion

We believe in equal opportunities.

Our DE&I placement stats have always set us apart (40% female and 35% BAME last year). We celebrate our diverse society and are committed to improving these stats year on year.
