Happy 7th Birthday!

FOUNDING DIRECTOR

7 years ago this week I took the plunge and set up  JBM 😬 

I was 25 and frankly had no idea if it would work but strongly believed there was a space in the market for an entrepreneurially minded, values driven firm that put relationships first.

The first 2 years was a hustle. Going coffee shop to coffee shop and growing through word of mouth. There were nervy times but it was great fun and reassuring that clients and candidates were buying into the JBM approach.

Over the last 5 years we’ve had incredible highs and the odd challenging low but we’ve stayed true to our values and I couldn’t be prouder of what we’ve achieved (and the fact we’ve continued to grow through word of mouth) and of the awesome team we have today 🙌🏽

It seems fitting that today we have our annual retreat where we’re off to have some fun (with other halves) and spend some time reflecting on the past year, as well as looking forward to the exciting things we have in store for 2020…

I’d like to say a huge thanks to the JBM team & board (past and present), our awesome candidates who help spread the word about why we are different and to our clients who we love partnering with and representing in the market.

We may be 7 years in but we’ve only just got started! 🚀
