Through our highly personalised approach, JBM has a proven track record of placing executive talent and future leaders into Operations, Strategy and Growth roles in Tech Scale-Ups, FinTechs and boutique Consultancies in the UK, US and AsiaPac.

But don’t just take our word for it, hear from some of our clients about what makes us different.


"James and his team at JBM have built something truly special. The best data point I can give is that in a business where we avoid working with recruiters, I actively seek out to work with JBM! Every recruiter says they have a 'people centric' approach but I've never seen a team execute on that promise like James'. They have a truly people focused approach, taking the time to really understand my business and its culture, and our needs and find the candidates that would within there. Going through the hiring process for a senior operational role was a dream from start to finish; they really get what 'great looks like and I look forward to working with them again soon! "

– Jess Ruben – Chief Officer, People & Ops @ Judopay

"James and the JBM team are clearly intent on working with candidates they like and organisations they like - this sets JBM apart from most recruitment consultants I've ever come across. They are interested in helping us build our business as they build theirs, both in the UK and where we have needs internationally. The candidates that they have found for us in New York are of the same calibre both professionally and personally that we have come to expect in the UK. Most importantly of all, JBM are all good to spend time with and never waste our time."

– Ged Brannan – Managing Director, Americas @ Q5 Partners

"James did a phenomenal job recruiting our first COO. We were blown away by the quality of candidates he put in front of us, which came from his network. He handled the process brilliantly, as this was the first time we'd made a hire of this nature. James gave us great advice on how to handle the process and also was very quick with feedback as we went along. I'd recommended JBM to any entrepreneurial business looking to make their first big hire."

– Tom Seaman – Co Founder @ UCN

"JBM offered excellent advice, and helped us refine the Chief of Staff JD for what was a rather complex role. They delivered invariably high quality candidates, and were adaptive in their search based on our feed-back. Ultimately they introduced us to our current, brilliant Chief of Staff who, four months into the role, has already proven herself invaluable."

– Kim Nilsson – CEO @ Pivigo

"JBM's mission, passion and respect for each individual is noticeable. They are a boutique search firm that focus carefully on fit, mission and character to make every match worthwhile. I am delighted to continue working with JBM in building together best-in-class teams."

– Karina Valencia – Business Cultivation Engineer @ Palantir

"We have been nothing but blown away by the service JBM have given us; they represent us well in the market place, manage expectations of candidates to make sure they have a great experience, are a delight to deal with, and fill our roles!"

– Carly Perry – Head of Recruitment @ Metro Bank

"I have always been impressed by JBM’s approach to building long term, meaningful relationships. This is really an asset for them, as it creates a genuine long term partnership. Their consultative approach to searches, adds tremendous value and supports the creation of win-win solutions. I consider JBM as a reference point when discussing trends within the tech industry and value their experience and advice."
