JBM - Fractional Marketing Manager

Who we are:  

We’re an award winning search firm that places executive talent and future leaders into high growth Startups, Scaleups and world-class VC firms, across UK, Europe and the US.

We pride ourselves on adding value and always innovating, that’s why we created our industry leading 40 Minute Mentor podcast and various video series for aspiring COO’s, CMO’s and Chief of Staff’s.

Most importantly, we’re on a mission to disrupt the traditional recruitment model through building deep, long-term relationships with everyone we work with, both clients and candidates.

We think like a Startup and act like a sports team, combining high EQ & IQ, tonnes of ambition and fun!

Sceptical? We get it…everyone talks a good game but we like to walk the walk, so don’t just take it from us, check out what our clients, like the Founders of Carwow or a Partner at Northzone, have to say about working with us.

The opportunity: 

We’re looking for someone to come join our marketing and 40 Minute Mentor production team, on a fractional or part-time basis. 

We are a remote-first company, so are flexible on where you might be based. We have an office in London Bridge and our Head of Marketing, Hannah, who you’ll be reporting to, is based in Bristol, so ideally you’d be able to occasionally travel to either/both of those locations. 

What you’ll be doing: 

✏️ Assist in producing and running our 40 Minute Mentor podcast 

✏️ Execute new ideas to make the podcast even better 

✏️ Source guests for upcoming series and own the research and development of interview questions 

✏️ Day to day marketing support for 40 Minute Mentor (e.g. producing show notes, launch assets, trailers, newsletters, etc.) 

✏️ Strengthen our relationship with press and media contacts to increase exposure for 40 Minute Mentor and JBM 

✏️ Run the production of our popular CxO Secrets series (incl. COO Secrets, CoS Secrets & CMO Secrets) 

✏️ Assist in launching new content series and partnerships 

✏️ Assist shaping the overarching podcast and marketing strategy with our Head of Marketing 

What we’re looking for: 

Believe in JBM’s mission – we’re a mission-driven search firm, so a strong conviction to disrupt and change the recruitment industry is a must-have. 

Team players – we’re looking for owners, not renters and someone who is happy to collaborate cross-functionally. 

Previous marketing experience – no matter whether that’s freelance, in-house or agency. 

PR experience – not a must-have but will be an advantage. 

Strong copywriting skills for long-form and short-form marketing materials. 

A keen eye for design – you don’t need to be a trained designer but comfortable to review and feedback on designs for marketing assets. 

Ambitious & driven – we always push ourselves to do better and add more value to the ecosystem. We’re looking for someone who shares that attribute and will be comfortable to push themselves and the team out of our comfort zone. 

Why JBM: 

We believe this is a fantastic opportunity to have a massive impact in the journey of JBM and 40 Minute Mentor. 

You’ll be given extensive responsibility and trust from day one. You’ll also have the chance to get involved with all aspects of JBM life, from marketing to socials and events. No day is the same at JBM!

We want you to be happy to come to work every day and to feel like you’re constantly learning, developing and playing an integral role in shaping the future of our business. And most importantly we want you to work to live, not the other way around, so we believe in giving our team the freedom to choose how, when and where they work. Whether that’s in the office, from a beach in Spain or a mix of the two – it’s up to you!

We also provide the following:

  • £25k – £35k pro rata & depending on experience 
  • Competitive rewards structure, including our biannual company profit share bonus (eligible after 12 months)
  • Flexible working: we’re a remote first company with a base in London Bridge
