JBM Consulting

What Hunted Says

Set up by two ex-Michael Pagers and ex-industry workers, JBM specialise in Change Management, Strategy and Consulting in to Finance and Banking. They've created JBM with a non-political ethos meaning the only debates in the office are about which Spotify playlist is on. They're all about inclusion which is why they run company wide trips where your kids and other half can come on their yearly holiday. And with an A list Board of Directors plus JBM building out their brand over the next couple of years, you'll be working for a company known and trusted in industry.

Life at JBM

Enjoying working at JBM is vitally important to us. Having experienced life at a variety of recruitment firms, we yearned for something different and more progressive. JBM feels like a family (and that's not just because two of the team have just had babies)! We operate in a supportive, friendly and mature environment and want to change hearts and minds about our industry with our style. The JBM family extends beyond our team. We hold an annual 'Thank You' for our clients, candidates and suppliers who have all helped us on this journey. Most of our clients have come from referrals; be that candidates recommending us to their bosses, clients recommending us to other firms, or people we've placed progressing into hiring positions. Three quarters of our placed candidates come from the same source, meaning everyone feels involved in the development of JBM.

Anyone who joins JBM at this stage will play a major part in shaping the business.

Overview

Founded in 2012, JBM Consulting is a values led, boutique recruitment business. We recruit into the Strategy, Change and COO space within Financial and Professional Services, and take pride in what we do. From what was a one-man band working in coffee shops across the City, we have grown to a team of dedicated recruitment specialists with diverse backgrounds and complementary skills. Over the next five years we will be opening international offices, expanding our client offerings, hiring more sensational recruiters and, most importantly, retaining our creative and collaborate culture.

Your Career at JBM

As a small (yet perfectly formed) business, JBM has ambitious plans for growth. We intend to expand our industry offerings more deeply into Financial and Professional Services, whilst extending our functional capabilities beyond Strategy and Change. Having carried out searches in New York and Hong Kong, International offices are also on our radar. And the great thing is, you can be a part of that! Our recent Company retreat to France was a chance for everyone to have their say on the Company vision. And it was all scribbled down on an old roll of wallpaper. Perfect. We are looking for people who want a challenge; people who want to build something. Anyone joining JBM at this stage in our journey will have a genuine chance to shape and influence the direction of the business. Whether that's growing a new industry sector, helping shape our marketing strategy, or opening an international office, a career at JBM is about much more than sending CVs.

To us, recruitment isn’t rocket science. We all share a passion for working in a consultative, creative and engaging way.

Learning & Development

Despite being a small business, we like to punch above our weight when it comes to L&D and therefore we have a personal training plan for each new joiner, tailored to their needs. The leadership team are fully involved in training and we also invest in external training. Being a key part of an entrepreneurial start up means our team get lots of exposure and the opportunity to get involved in a variety of projects, enabling them to learn new skills and have more autonomy and ownership over their career.

Fun & Games

Life at JBM isn’t just about work, we like to mix it up and have fun as much as possible. Socials have included Go-Karting, watching NFL at Wembley, Rugby at Twickenham and a 4 day retreat to the south of France (with other halves and children). All of the JBM’ers believe in the mantra ‘healthy body, healthy mind’, so the team take time out to play team sports (Rugby, American Football, Cricket etc) and also make the most of the Virgin Active gym membership and the ‘JBM Wellbeing Box’ which is stocked full of healthy snacks...and the occasional naughty treat! Other perks that we offer all of our employees include a season ticket loan, private medical insurance, subscriptions to industry publications and free booze at the end of the week!

JBM HQ

We're located in an amazing new FinTech incubator in Canary Wharf, close to a number of our key clients and complete with roof terrace and ping pong table! We like talking on the phone, but nothing beats a good face-to-face chat and a coffee when it comes to really understanding our client's needs or the person behind a CV. Where better to have these meetings than at our very own in-house cafe, Caffeine Bank, where we have a tab for business and pleasure! We want to build meaningful relationships with our clients and candidates, so we'll encourage you to meet as many of them as possible either in our office, in coffee shops around the city or at a social event, to reflect our style.

JBM Events

Over the past 4 years we've built a close network of loyal supporters. This extended family has provided us with new candidates and clients through trusted recommendations; a USP we are very proud of. We get this group together at JBM events throughout the year, to say thank you and share our mutual successes. This year we hosted an (unlimited) drinks event at The Shard for almost 100 attendees who came together to network, listen to a live jazz band, get bamboozled by a magician and enjoy free flowing bubbly with 360 degree views of London.

Christmas Party!

Last year, we gave the team a budget to create their dream Christmas celebration. They picked a treasure hunt and quiz around London followed by a tradition Christmas meal of... Nando's.

The Nuts and Bolts

We know this job can be tough, so we've tried to create an office environment and infrastructure that removes any of the normal frustrations. Our database is modern and entirely web based, we use funky software to gamify the day job, and you can even claim your expenses via an app! All of our consultants have access to the new recruiter platform on LinkedIn and also get a laptop and mobile phone. From day one you'll get a Virgin Active gym membership, health insurance, and of course you'll be able to tuck in to the weekly fruit deliveries we get to the office!

Christmas party fun!
