What Our Clients Say

  • MD at SME PR Business

    Recruitment companies, and recruitment consultants are ten a penny, but really good ones that go that extra yard for their clients, are rare. Simon is definitely the latter. His knowledge of the industry is second to none. He not only provides a fantastic recruitment offering, but also great HR advice, which is invaluable to any SME. I highly recommend Simon for your recruitment needs.

    Simon has provided a number of key personnel for our business. He takes time to understand both the culture and the key attributes of each role we require, I would highly recommend him as your next choice if you are looking to place a senior position within the supply chain.

  • UK Country Manager at Major Food Distribution Business

    Simon worked for me on recruiting for a Site Manager at one of our new operations. He spent time to understand the culture of our company and the type of person we were looking for. Ahead of the interviews we spoke about each of the candidates, and his knowledge of them showed that he had taken time to understand them, and their fit with us. Almost every candidate we saw would have been a good fit for the role, and even creating a shortlist of three, resulted in some really tough decisions, due to the calibre of all candidates. I am really pleased with our new Site Manager, and was also extremely happy with the recruitment process, and the service provided by Simon. I can provide no higher compliment than to say, I would be happy for him to be helping me in my search for a new challenge.
