Meet JBM

Alice McDermott

Principal - Strategy & Change

Who are you?

Originally from North London, I’ve since called Sheffield, Valencia and Buckinghamshire home before moving back to my roots last year. Happy to be back and enjoying city life I’m likely to either be eating, drinking, museuming or watching endless documentaries on Netflix. Or chasing dogs around Regent’s Park!

What do you do?

I joined JBM in 2017 with just over 14 months’ experience in financial services recruitment, having focused extensively on strategy and M&A. Working on both consulting and industry roles, I bring this in-depth market knowledge to my work with Retail Banking & Payments clients as well as when I’m advising and supporting individuals with the next step in their careers.

Who inspires you?

My Granpop was the biggest inspiration in my life – from growing up in Merseyside during the Second World War, to being thrown into combat on the Eastern front at the age of 18 and then continuing to fight for justice in the social welfare system for fifty years (and meeting the Queen in the process!) he always had the most contagious and unwavering positivity.
