Jess joined our Board Practice in 2018 in a research capacity, working closely with our consultants on Chair, NED and C-Suite appointments. More recently, as Associate Partner, Jess has worked across a broad spectrum of leadership positions spanning hospitality, property, manufacturing, oil & energy, technology and FMCG. Jess’ experience across multiple roles and sectors gives her a deep insight into market conditions which she uses to advise candidates and clients alike.

Prior to joining Eton Bridge, Jess spent 10 years working across travel and tourism in a number of operations and commercial roles around Europe, before running an investment floor for a global Asset Management firm.

Originally from London, she has lived and worked across Europe as a chef and in her spare time she enjoys travelling with her husband and finding great new recipes to recreate at home.

Joined the EBP team in 2018

Proud moment

Prior to working at Eton Bridge Partners, I spent 10 years working as a Chef. My proudest achievement during this time was being selected as top of my class.

Favourite era

If I could travel to any era it would be the 1920’s – a time full of learning and exploration, glitz and glamour.

I was approached by Eton Bridge Partners for a confidential discussion in relation to a listed CEO role. I met with Louise Chaplin and Jess Jakins for them to gain an understanding of my background, situation, and plans. The EBP team was super-efficient and on-the-ball with their updates and insights. I enjoyed working with the team, and hope to work with the team at Eton Bridge Partners again. Thank you team EBP!
