Bringing together talent experts





JBM stands out head and shoulders above other recruiters…they provide quality candidates, who are unfailingly well prepared in terms of the understanding of the role and our business, as well as having the blend of personality and professional capabilities.

Senior Director, Cross Sector Strategy Firm

Working with JBM is a pleasure. They are very professional, hard working and personable. They listen to our recruitment requirements and deliver the best possible results. I would recommend them to any client who values their time and who is looking for quality service: they will always do their best to deliver.

HR Business Partner, Global Retail & Corporate Bank

Working with James and JBM has been a very positive experience. They obviously qualify, in great detail, the roles they are working to fill with their clients. Their contracts are straight forward and the time sheet and payment system is simple and slick. Not only that but they keep in touch during the contract to make sure there are no issues.

Head of PMO, Challenger Bank

It’s always a pleasure dealing with JBM (which cannot always be said for all recruitment consultants) .. they take due care and attention when dealing with hiring challenges and are the right level of attentive. I feel wholly confident that JBM are the perfect partner to continue to help my business find the right candidates and grow successfully

Head of Sales, AI Start Up

James has been a trusted recruitment partner to us for almost two years. In that time, he has successfully built a solid relationship and delivered to our brief on several occasions. He takes pride in his business and carefully selects which candidates he presents to us which hasn’t gone unnoticed to internal stakeholders. Cultural fit and character goes a long way in a small industry and James really understands what works for us. We hope to continue working closely with JBM as our business grows and would recommend them to others in a similar field.

Head of Talent, Global FS Consultancy

James and the JBM team have been outstanding for our organization and partnered with us to deliver winning talent. Our firm operates in 31 markets around the globe, from first world to frontier markets, and present some of the most difficult searches possible. I truly appreciate the authentic nature of the JBM team – always honest and personable – they got to know us and the candidates, representing both parties in the right way. James’ network is impressive, a testament to his strong record of delivering great results

Chief People Officer, Global Telco

James and his team are incredibly personable and honest. James put in many hours in person and over the phone to get to know me, provide council and to help me prepare for every step of the process. He knows his industries, understands his clients in and out and works very hard to find the best fit for you. Can’t recommend him enough!

Senior Manager, Asset Management Consultancy

The JBM team are responsive, flexible and they take time to understand client culture at a much deeper level than I’d expected. It all comes together to feel like an incredibly bespoke service. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend working with JBM Consulting.

Director, Global Strategy Firm

James and the 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. James is interested in helping us build our business as he builds his, both in the UK and where we have needs internationally. The candidates that James has 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, James and his team are all good to spend time with and never waste our time.

Partner, Americas, Boutique Change Consultancy

I worked with James at JBMC whilst looking to secure a new Partner level consulting role. James spent a huge amount of time with me discussing exactly what I was looking for, what was important to me and my career aspirations. He added some valuable insights into the market, opportunities and where I should be focusing my attention. He is very well connected and found me a number of suitable opportunities. He kept me informed and well briefed throughout the recruitment and interview processes, continually offering advice and guidance before each interview session and worked well with the senior client teams on remuneration discussions. I would use James and JBM again for any future job moves, and will be using JBM for my own internal recruitment build in the future.
