Our Journey & Vision

"When I started JCW in 2007 from my living room with just a phone and a laptop, I wanted to build a business that was obsessed with service excellence and always delivered on its promises."

Jamie Woods, CEO, JCW Group


"We’ve come a long way over the last 14 years. Now a Group of businesses, we have a global office network spanning 2 continents, have received numerous industry awards, and have more than 100 people generating revenues in excess of £50m.


JCW has been, and always will be, a growth driven business. Whilst I’m incredibly proud of our achievements to date, I am focused on the future. Focused on the opportunities not yet exploited, the milestones not yet hit, and the obstacles not yet overcome."

Talent incubator

"We’re no longer just JCW, a financial services recruitment specialist, we’re JCW Group, a multi-business talent provider. A key part of our next phase of growth is being an incubator for talent focused businesses. In 2020 we launched two new talent specialist businesses, Guideline and Xander, and will continue to provide an environment and structure to support start-up businesses, and ideas, by creating a platform for growth."


Long-term vision

My long-term goal is to become the top talent business in the world. It’s a target that will take a considerable amount of work to achieve, but I firmly believe in our businesses, industries and people. Working together with intelligence, determination and perseverance, I’m confident we’ll achieve our goals.

Employee opportunity

All of this is only achievable with teams of industry experts operating across the Group. We’re not ones for standing still and I’m committed to creating an environment that provides unique opportunity to grow careers quickly - and with the potential to work across any of our businesses and locations. Proud to be an award-winning employer, we’ll continue to strive to be the benchmark in our industry, treating people with respect, delivering on our promises and recognising success."
