“Simon genuinely cares about people. He makes sure he gets it right in terms of putting the right person in the right role for his clients and the candidate. From the outset, the first conversation I had about the role, to offer stage Simon made the whole process really comfortable. As a people person, he understood very quickly what drives me, where my passions lie, and ensured the role I was looking at would be a great fit.

Simon is hugely knowledgeable about marketing and where businesses are in terms of marketing transformation. He understands, at a deep level, his clients in terms of their people, culture and the role he’s recruiting for. All that combined gave me real insight before I walked through the door for interview. Throughout the whole process Simon kept in touch regularly, sharing updates and as a result I felt very calm, informed and engaged.

I can say, hand on heart, that I really enjoyed the entire recruitment process from start to end and Simon played a pivotal role in that. And, it doesn’t stop there as Simon has remained in touch to check in and see how I’m settling into the new role.

Thanks again Simon for playing such an instrumental and supportive role helping me secure an opportunity that I’m hugely enjoying.”
