Dan Kirkpatrick

Group Director

​I joined JAM straight after finishing university - despite being a bit of a numbers geek (Economics BA and Statistics MSc) and always thinking I'd end up in something to do with Finance I'm still in a "people" job over 15 years later and still enjoy it as much as I did on my first day. My first role at JAM was as a Trainee Consultant and since then I've held a number of different roles including Business Unit Manager for our Managed Accounts & RPO divisions and Client Services Director within our Business Development Team. I was promoted to a Group Director in 2018 and now have a wide ranging role across all aspects of the business… I still love working with clients and candidates though so always ensure I have a couple of live jobs! Outside of work I love eating out, wine, squash and our menagerie of animals (Arlo the Cockapoo, Rafferty and Rufus the Ragdolls and Jemima the Rabbit) I’m also the reigning JAM table football and table tennis champion – a misspent childhood! And my (very minor) claim to fame is that I once appeared on ITV's popular dating/cookery show, Dinner Date!
