The job hunt, flipped.
For career switchers with 2-5 years experience.
We set up Jumpswitch to help the brightest & most ambitious people get into the start-up world. We’ve done this with the world’s first start-up grad scheme…
And now we’re now doing it for career switchers who want roles in start-ups with titles like "Chief of Staff", "Strategy & Operations" or "Head of Special Projects"...
How it works.
Start-up founders pitch to you. You choose the companies you like. Then you get fast tracked straight to interview. All alongside your day job.

More about us.
The two co-founders, Matthew (ex-BCG) and Kabir (ex-Monitor Deloitte) started off in consulting before discovering just how exciting the start-up world is.
So, in the last 2 years, they built the world's first start-up graduate programme, placing 100+ Jumpstarters into some of the most exciting start-ups.
They have since started getting requests from start-ups asking: can you do the same again, but more senior?
Well, this is them launching that programme.
