“I have worked with Simon as a candidate and subsequently as a client. Simon approached me as part of a targeted, confidential search for a leadership position. His briefing was informative and showed a depth of client and industry knowledge. Following a rigorous interview process I was appointed as Group CEO for Dr Max, a business with revenues in excess of €1 bn, based in Central Europe.”

“I first met Simon a number of years ago at a time when I was looking to change career. I managed to secure a new position with my previous employer, however Simon and I stayed in touch on a regular basis. After 5 years with my employer I was ready for a new challenge and Simon approached me with a highly confidential position he felt would suit my aspirations. After meeting with the CEO of the business, the parent company and visiting the site, I was successful in securing my new role. I found Simon to be highly supportive throughout and thoroughly enjoyed the process.”

“After making the decision to leave my previous employer, I approached Simon for advice on securing my next role. I found the interview with Simon to be highly productive and challenging and Simon discussed the fact that he was talent spotting on behalf of a client CEO. Simon outlined the market sector and business, the challenges it was facing and even though it was a market sector I had not considered his depth of knowledge allowed me to make the decision that it would be worth- while meeting to explore. After an excellent, well- constructed process I secured my new role as Operations Director. As a consequence I would highly recommend Simon as a recruiter and have utilised his services in my new role.”
