  • Inspiring leadership

    JSS Search was launched in 2016 by the two Co-Founders of Investigo – Simon Smith and Scott Beckson. Together they made Investigo a three-time entrant into the Fast Track 100 and Hot 100 of the fastest growing businesses in the UK.

    Now they’ve established JSS Search as a trusted partner to a diverse portfolio of clients. These range from FTSE 250, Nasdaq quoted and Fortune 500 organisations to fast-growing Unicorns and PE backed businesses across consumer, industrial and global financial services markets.

  • Career development

    We’ve grown fast – and we’re ambitious to grow much further. For you, that means huge scope for professional development. You’ll have the chance to boost your market knowledge, capitalise on multiple existing client relationships and seize leadership opportunities.

  • An exceptional culture

    Our agile, entrepreneurial culture is built on our values. It’s underpinned by the professionalism and maturity that comes with an experienced team. And it’s at the core of everything we do. We’re united by our desire to collaborate, our focus on doing what’s right, our passion for learning and developing ourselves, and our determination to be a firm we’re all proud to work for.

  • An exciting journey

    Launched in 2016, we’re growing fast. 2021 was a record year – we grew our revenue by almost 100% and our headcount by 38%. And we’re on track for 50% growth in both revenue and headcount in 2022. Over the next three years, we plan to more than double in size while still retaining our boutique feel. Our goal is to be 100 people strong by 2026. But we only want to grow with the right people, and if we can give them, and our divisions, solid support at every stage. This is an exciting time, and you can be part of it.

  • Extensive networks

    Our candidate networks are extensive and ever-expanding, and you can tap into them. We’ve built these networks over years, capitalising on our relationships with clients and candidates alike to establish a rich talent pipeline. Made up of passive candidates in many countries and diverse industries, they’ll give you a head start no matter how challenging the assignment.

“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.”

Seth Godin


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.
