Prior to joining JSS, Steve worked for 20 years with FTSE 250 recruiter PageGroup as Managing Director and more recently as Chief Operating Officer for Montresor Legal, a boutique executive search firm.
“We are thrilled to welcome Steve Hallam as our new CEO,” said Scott Beckson and Simon Smith. “His impressive background and extensive experience make him the ideal leader to guide JSS Search into its next phase of growth. We are confident that under Steve’s leadership, JSS will continue to thrive and deliver exceptional value to our clients and candidates.
Steve expressed his excitement about joining JSS, stating, “It is a great honour to be given the opportunity to work for this brilliant boutique firm. I’m truly grateful to Simon and Scott for the faith they have shown in appointing me as CEO. I’m hugely impressed with the calibre of the team already assembled and thrilled to see what we can all achieve together from here over the next few years.”
Scott and Simon will be working alongside Steve as part of the main board and will continue to play a key part in both operational and strategic activity.
2022 represented a year of significant growth for the business. Headcount grew from 21 people to 64 today, and net fee income rose by 100%. We launched 5 new business areas and in early 2023 opened our first international office in New York.
We are a boutique search firm that places personal dedication to our clients at the core of our culture. With Steve’s leadership, the company is well-positioned to capitalise on new opportunities and continue to provide staffing and recruitment solutions that exceed customer expectations.
