Fully flexible hours


JBM is on a mission to disrupt the traditional, transactional recruitment model.

We are all about building authentic relationships and bringing together a diverse mix of the best executives and future leaders, with the fastest growing Scaleups that are changing the world.

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.

Flexible working approach

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.

To hear what our team love about working for JBM, check out this video.

Company FlexScore™

Scoring against our flexibility index (1 = not at all flexible, 100 = couldn’t be more flexible, 51 is average) using a number of parameters to assess flexibility such as working from home, hours, frequency of travel, benefits, etc.


Employee FlexScore™

Scoring against our employee perception index (1 = not seen as flexible, 100 = couldn’t be happier with the flexibility, 51 is average) using a number of more emotional / perception based questions to understand whether employees feel supported and offered what they want. The areas we cover are work-life balance / managerial support / flexible benefits / working environment / and many others.


"JBM is the most flexible environment I've come across, and the leadership team are super empathetic and understanding of the needs of their employees."
