The JM Group may gather information about all visitors to the Websites collectively as well as individually. The JM Group only uses such data to help determine how the online services can be improved. Please note that The JM Group does currently use cookies, please refer to our “Cookies Policy on http://www.thejmgroup.com/content_dynamic/display.asp?form_action=display&id=638&type_id=2

Cookies Policy

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie.


Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently remembering your preferences, and generally improve your web site experience. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.

We can split cookies into 4 main categories:

Category 1: strictly necessary cookies
Category 2: performance cookies
Category 3: functionality cookies
Category 4: targeting cookies or advertising cookies

Category 1 - Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies services you have asked for, like register for job alerts, cannot be provided.

Please be aware our site uses this type of cookie

Category 2 - Performance cookies
These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works.

By using our website and online services, you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your device.

Category 3 - Functionality cookies
These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name and password) and provide enhanced, more personal features. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymous and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

By using our website and online services, you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your device.

Category 4 - targeting cookies or advertising cookies
These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisations.

We do have links to other web sites and once you access another site through a link that we have provided it is the responsibility of that site to provide information as to how they use cookies on the respective site.

You can find more information about cookies by visiting www.allaboutcookies.org or www.youronlinechoices.eu. Google also have a brief video which explains the use of cookies.

Disclosure of your Personal Data
Your personal details, including your CV may be sent to consultants working in other JM Group offices or prospective employers both within and outside the European Economic Area. The data protection laws in countries outside the EEA may not be as extensive as in the European Economic Area but the JM Group will at all times adhere to the data protection principles outlined in the Data Protection Act 1998.
Additionally you acknowledge that the JM Group might sell or buy assets or the whole or any part of its business undertaking or that someone else may take over the running of any of the Websites. The legal status of the JM Group or its ownership could also change. In this type of transaction, customer information generally is one of the assets transferred. You acknowledge that your data can be transferred as part of the process. 
If you give fax, phone or e-mail details you authorise the JM Group or its associates to contact you using that method. If you decide that you no longer wish us to communicate with you, or the details we hold on you change, or you decide to register with the Telephone Preference Service or Fax Preference Service in the UK or any equivalent you agree to tell us to enable us to update our records. If you have any questions about data protection please email all questions to the IT Department at it@theJMGroup.com

4. Download times

In order to make the Websites more user-friendly and to increase the amount of information a number of software applications are used on the Websites. The Websites use Flash software. This may take more time to load than conventional HTML web pages, especially if you are accessing a Website over a dial-up connection to the internet or via a mobile device such as a WAP phone or PDA or any other wireless connection. The Websites may also make use of Adobe Acrobat software, for example to display job descriptions or advertisements. Again Adobe Acrobat files are likely to take longer to download especially if you are accessing the Websites in one of the ways outlined above. By proceeding to download Flash or Adobe Acrobat parts of the site you acknowledge the increased download time and computing resource you will need.

5. Limitation on Types of Use

You may not modify, copy, distribute, disable, transmit, display, perform, reproduce, publish, license, create derivative works from, transfer, or sell any information or services obtained from any of the Websites. You may not use the site for anything other than the purpose outlined in these Terms of Use and you may not use spiders or other robotic software tools to gather information from the website.

6. Liability Disclaimer

Please Read Carefully as this Section Limits your Ability to Claim Damages

The main purpose of the Websites is to provide information about career opportunities both permanent and temporary within the financial and technology industries and information about our management consulting services. The Websites also provide information about the services offered by The JM Group Companies.

The JM Group uses reasonable care to check the accuracy of information published on the Websites. You should note however that The JM Group does not give any warranty that any information will be accurate or up-to-date and the user acknowledges that the information, and services published on any of the Websites may include inaccuracies or typographical errors. The JM Group can not verify the information which is supplied by any other individual or organisation. In particular, and without limitation to the rest of these Terms of Use, if you are thinking of taking up employment or training and you are using any of the Websites to help with your research, you should seek advice from an appropriately qualified careers adviser in addition to the information provided on this site. The JM Group is not able to guarantee that its service will continue or be accurate during time of server failure.

The JM Group and/or its associates may make improvements or alterations to any of the Websites at any time and without notice. The JM Group is not responsible in any way whatsoever for the content of any site accessed using the Websites, nor (because of its links with numerous other web sites) can it warrant that use of the site will be free from virus contamination.

You must make independent checks on the accuracy of any information obtained via any of the Websites before relying upon it and you should obtain adequate insurance to cover you from any harm that might result from use of any data provided by this site. The JM Group is not in a position to know for what purpose you will use this data and so cannot insure against loss.

All warranties, terms and conditions with regard to this information and services, including all warranties, terms and conditions, implied by statute, collaterally or otherwise, of satisfactory quality, fitness for a particular purpose, title, and non-infringement are excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law.

The JM Group shall not in any event be liable for any damages (whether indirect, incidental, special, consequential or otherwise) arising out of, or in any way connected with, the use of the Websites, or with any delayed access to, or inability to use any of the Websites, or for any information, products, and services obtained through any of the Websites, or otherwise arising out of the use of the Websites, whether based on contract, tort, strict liability or otherwise, even if The JM Group has been advised of the possibility of damages. This does not affect the statutory rights of any person dealing as a consumer nor shall anything in these terms and conditions exclude or limit liability for death or personal injury caused by negligence or for fraudulent misrepresentation.

Links to Third-Party Sites
The Websites contain links to websites operated by parties other than The JM Group. The JM Group does not control these services and is not responsible for their content. A reference on any of the Websites to any person, employer, company, organisation, product, website or service does not constitute or imply their endorsement, recommendation or favouring by the The JM Group Companies.

The inclusion of third party information does not imply any endorsement of the material or any association with their operators. In particular, and without limitation to the rest of these Terms of Use, The JM Group has no control over any news groups, chat rooms or e-mail discussion forums which you may come across via this site. Additionally, and again without limitation to the rest of these Terms of Use, you should not download any material (including but not limited to pornographic, racist or obscene material) from the internet without first checking that it is legal to do so in your jurisdiction.

The JM Group reserves the right to remove any link or third party service at any time and without notice and shall not be obliged to give a reason for doing so. If you become concerned about the content of a site linked to or from any of the Websites or any news story please inform The JM Group immediately via e-mail to the IT Department it@theJMGroup.com.

8. Messages from the JM Group and its Associates

Any e-mail or other form of communication between representatives of The JM Group Companies and other parties will be deemed covered by these Terms of Use.

9. Messages to the JM Group

You are responsible for your own communications and are responsible for the consequences of their posting. If you submit information to us, by doing so you give us a non-exclusive royalty free licence to use it and you warrant that the material you send us (including but not limited to any details of jobs you have done and qualifications you possess) is true. The JM Group continually monitor e-mails sent to us and may bar e-mails which breach these Terms of Use.

If you provide your CV or other personal details via the Websites you do so in the knowledge that the internet and e-mail are not a secure environment.

Without limit to the legal requirements already imposed on you, you must not (and by e-mailing us you agree not to) do the following things: post material that reveals trade secrets; post material that infringes on any other intellectual property rights of others, which breaches the professional ethics of a profession or the privacy of others; post material that is obscene, defamatory, threatening, harassing, abusive, sexually explicit or discriminatory; or pretend to be another person.

10. No Unlawful or Prohibited Use

As a condition of your use of any of the Websites, you warrant to The JM Group that you will not use any of the Websites for any purpose that is unlawful or prohibited by these Terms of Use.

11. Other General Terms

These Terms of Use are governed by the laws of England (where the Websites originate and are designed to be accessed) and are deemed to be made in London, England. You consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts in all disputes arising out of or relating to the use of any of the Websites. Use of any of the Websites is unauthorised in any jurisdiction that does not give effect to all provisions of these terms and conditions, including without limitation this section.

You agree that no joint venture, partnership, employment or agency relationship exists between you and The JM Group as a result of your acceptance of these Terms of Use or use of any of the Websites. Each and every provision of these Terms of Use is separate and severable. If any part of these Terms of Use is determined to be invalid or unenforceable pursuant to applicable law including, but not limited to, the warranty disclaimers and liability limitations set out above, then the validity and enforceability of the remainder of the terms shall not be affected.

These Terms of Use constitute the entire agreement between you and The JM Group with respect to the Websites and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous communications and proposals, whether electronic, oral, or written, between you and The JM Group with respect to any of the Websites. A printed version of these Terms of Use and of any notice given in electronic form shall be admissible in judicial or administrative proceedings based upon or relating to these Terms of Use to the same extent and subject to the same conditions as other business documents and records originally generated and maintained in printed form. Any rights not expressly granted herein are reserved. You will be responsible for all charges, fees, duties, taxes, and assessments arising out of the use by you of any of the Websites.
