In 2014, Jamie was named the 20th Most Powerful Person in British Theatre by The Stage in their annual Stage 100 list. He was the youngest director to break into the list since Sam Mendes.

Jamie has also directed work as a part of the Old Vic 24 Hour Plays & Musicals and the Royal Court International Residencies, and was on the panel for the 2015 Kevin Spacey Foundation Theatre Awards.
