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.

Managing Director, Strategy 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.

Partner, Global Consultancy

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.

CEO, Tech Start Up

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

UK MD, AI Start Up

I spoke with a number of recruiters, but was really impressed with James and his level of knowledge/contacts specifically relevant to me. He was able to talk to a good degree of detail about several relevant opportunities, and then actively followed up both with target companies and with me, over a period of several months. This resulted in a vacancy being specifically created for me, which I subsequently accepted. I knew several other people who had worked with and recommended James - and I appreciated the small touches such as inviting me to an industry event and texting me for each interview. Overall an excellent experience which I'd be surprisingly keen to do again!

Director, Big 4 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, Strategy Consultancy

I have known and worked with JBM for several years. A couple of times as a candidate but more through using their services as a high quality recruitment consultancy…They are entirely client and candidate focused, listening and developing briefs and profiles and they have a deep knowledge of several sectors of financial services.

Head of Change, Investment Management 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

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

I've known James for several years. He and his team are outstanding - highly collaborative, focused on value rather than volume, great for candidates and clients alike. I'd strongly recommend working with James and the JBM Team.

Transformation Director, Challenger Bank

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!

Head of Talent, Challenger Bank

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

JBM stand apart from other search firms. They use a relationship based approach, rather than the usual sales based approach, they listen and consult. They have successfully placed consultants at a number of levels (including Director) and provided an innovative and successful solution to a maternity cover role. I greatly value JBM’s style of doing business, their integrity and ultimately their results.
