We think we’re a top company to work for…

We want your career with us to be happy and rewarding. Our culture and our people are sure to make that happen but we also have a few little extras to say thank you and to help you achieve that all important work-life balance.

We care for our clients’ business as our business. We think and act like business partners, not academic advisors. We share our clients’ aspirations, work to understand their reality, and align our incentives with their objectives — so they know we’re in this together.

Personal development, mentoring, and teamwork are just a few of the benefits of building a career with us.

We are committed to equality of opportunity for all staff and applications from individuals are encouraged regardless of age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and marriage and civil partnerships. Whilst the majority of our vacancies are advertised as full-time we are happy to consider part-time and/or job share for the right applicant and we encourage applications from candidates who may be returning to work after a career break.

Our One Team ethos, which encourages shared responsibility, alignment and great teamwork within and between teams, is essential for the effective delivery of our services. This builds on our commitment to equality and diversity ensuring opportunities are available for all.

Your development

We don’t offer jobs, we offer careers. When you join JBA, we commit to your development as much as you do.

Our culture promotes drive and innovation and we believe that learning and development is key. Every employee has a generous training budget and plan, giving you the time and money needed to develop in the areas most important
to you.

We will cover the cost of membership fees of one relevant professional society/institution at chartered/examined level, plus one professional chartered affiliation (e.g. CEng, CEnv, IEng, CSci, CGeol, CGeog, etc).

We will also consider how we can support you financially if you would like to undertake further
professional qualifications.

The little extras

We provide a few little extras to say thank you and to help you achieve that all important work-life balance.

Flexible working hours: We have flexible start and finish times and an annual leave package that increases
with service.

Staff awards: Our annual awards recognise staff achievements, such as in innovation.

Benefits: We provide medical assistance, health and life insurance, childcare vouchers, a profit-sharing programme, and contributory pension plan.

Low Carbon Travel Awards: You could earn an extra £150 per year by travelling to work in a sustainable way, such as cycling, car-sharing, walking or by taking public transport.

Equality monitoring

JBA is committed to the application of the Equality Act 2010 (UK); Employment Equality Acts 1998, 2004 (Ireland); and Employment Act 1991 and Employment (Amendment) Act 1996 (Isle of Man).

In order to assist in monitoring and reporting equality information, and to record our progress in achieving the aims of our Equality & Diversity Policy, we would be grateful if you would complete our confidential questionnaire and return a copy with your application form.

Note to Agencies

JBA prefers to recruit candidates directly, rather than through a third party recruiter or agency. We will only pay a fee for candidates submitted or presented where there is a signed recruiting agreement in place between us and the recruiter or agency prior to the submittal, and the candidate is submitted for a specific requisition.

In the case of a candidate(s) being submitted or presented to us by a recruiter or agency without a signed agreement, JBA explicitly reserves the right to pursue and hire those candidate(s) without any financial obligation to the recruiter or agency.

However, we do support free jobs listing with Find a Job.
