Our executive search team starts by really getting to know you and your business. We’re interested in Founders’ stories; your dreams, your culture and of course your resourcing needs. Once we understand that, we set about finding the most culturally aligned world class leaders, to ensure you can continue to scale at pace.

Panning for gold with our in-depth candidate research

Clients often come to us with a sense of frustration over the executive search process. It takes time and expertise; these roles are business-critical and expensive to fill. We work across all sectors and stages of growth. Our agile approach and trusted networks enable us to find hidden gems of talent. And not always the ones that look right on paper! We invite you to think differently with us.

“We're big fans of JBM. They are the only recruitment firm I've ever recommended to friends of fellow CEO's ”
James Hind, CEO

“Under James' leadership, JBM's unparalleled focus on value alignment and culture-add has been instrumental in the buildout of our team. Understandably such thoughtful searches usually take time, but JBM has been able to deliver at an outstanding speed - all the while offering a great candidate / hiring team experience. It’s been a genuine pleasure to work with James and his team, and I highly recommend JBM for any mission-driven Startups and organisations.”
Iris Zhongyun Ma - Global VP People

“JBM are very passionate and extremely focused on diversity. They go beyond the immediate talent pools where you would find traditional profiles and backgrounds to really unearth, really talented and diverse talent.”
Elena Pantazi, Head of Talent

“We retained JBM to hire our first COO. We were delighted with the excellent levels of service, the calibre of the shortlist & the speed with which they delivered results. I highly recommend JBM for any high growth company looking to hire top COO talent.”
Dan Ziv, CEO

”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, CEO

"JBM are really good at what they do. We are super impressed with the level of CVs they have sent across."
Rebecca Masri MBE, CEO

"James is an absolutely first class executive recruiter. Simple as that. Unlike other recruiters I’ve worked with, he immediately grasped the nuances of the type of candidate I was looking for and he was able to source amazing candidates rapidly. I really appreciate how James doesn’t take a tick-box approach to recruiting, but instead thinks laterally and creatively about how to find the very best talent. I highly recommend him and JBM."

"I couldn't be more impressed with my experience of working with James and his team at JBM. Every step of the way they were on hand to answer my questions and help talk through my decision making process. Would strongly recommend JBM to both candidates and businesses alike!"
