We’re flexible and fast-acting

We comb through a global network of talent, using cutting-edge technology and dynamic market mapping. We do so in a way that dovetails precisely with the way you like to work. Our tailored approach also features a bespoke pricing model and swift turnaround times. In fact, few other search firms can match us for speed, adaptability and accuracy of fit.

Depth and breadth of knowledge to draw on

Our specialist know-how spans Life Sciences & Healthcare, FinTech & Payments, Infrastructure, Private Equity and Venture Capital. Across these diverse markets, we’ve sourced talent for an array of critical leadership positions. We’ve placed senior people in just about every CxO role and have also recruited board chairs, executive committee members, operating partners, senior advisors, and presidents, EVPs and VPs among others.

Our capabilities encompass not only executive search, but also extend to advisory placements and non-exec directors.

We’re professional from start to finish

We tailor our searches to your brief and the way you like to work. And while we can deliver shortlists quickly, we never cut corners. We make sure we always achieve the best possible results by following a carefully thought through, step-by-step process.


We invest time in gaining a comprehensive understanding of your business challenges and the role. We offer insights into its specific needs and the skills it calls for.


Working to your timescales, and capitalising on a network that’s been built over decades, we devise searches based on curated, dynamic market mapping. We also follow a deep and complete due diligence process that makes sure only the best candidates get to your door.


We present you with a shortlist of keen, qualified candidates who are an excellent fit for both the role and the culture, so you have real options to consider.

Candidate interviews

We manage and help co-ordinate the interviews of every candidate that you select from our shortlist.

Offer management and referencing

We manage each selected candidate through contract negotiations, working closely with you to make sure the process is swift and smooth. If you’d like us to, we can carry out a thorough referencing process.

Quality assurance

We treat compliance and quality assurance seriously at JSS and always formally validate candidates’ credentials. Wherever possible, we take ‘soft references’ as well as formal references. ‘Soft references’ come from peers, direct reports and immediate managers and often add greater insight.

We have a culture that inspires

Our agile, entrepreneurial culture is underpinned by the professionalism and maturity that comes with an experienced team. It’s built on the following values:

  • Entrepreneurship
  • Expertise
  • Ethics
  • Teamwork


We’re not micro-managers. Our people are doers who enjoy a great deal of autonomy. Self-motivated, commercial and tenacious, they’re able to see opportunities that others miss.

“An independent thinker, I incline to take risks in search of high rewards. I fear boredom and mediocrity much more than I fear failure.”

Ray Dalio


Our deep understanding of our specialist areas marks us out from our competitors. You’ll be someone who’s ever-curious, always increasing your market knowledge and staying on top of market developments.

“Developing expertise or assets that are not easily copied is essential; otherwise, you’re just a middleperson.”

Trust is hard won and easily lost in business. We pride ourselves on our integrity, on being open and honest with clients and candidates alike and going above and beyond to deliver what we say we will.

“If you’re guided by a spirit of transparency, it forces you to operate with a spirit of ethics. Success comes from simplifying complex issues, address problems head on, be truthful and transparent. If you open yourself up to scrutiny, it forces you to a higher standard. I believe you should deliver on your promise. Promise responsibly.”

Rodney Davis


Collaboration and teamwork are as much a part of our DNA as passion and drive. We believe in supporting and helping one another, always.
