The term ‘friendly professionalism’ springs to mind when describing Simon. He has over 14 years’ recruitment experience within the West Midlands & Warwickshire area, specialising in senior finance appointments. He is well liked and trusted by clients and candidates alike.
Vaughan Reid from Integrated Water Systems Ltd. sums Simon’s consultative approach up when he says: “Simon listened to what I needed and quickly identified an ideal candidate demonstrating he had clearly understood and carefully considered my requirements. His approach is consultative and not pushy, he simply delivered the service that I needed while allowing us to work at our own pace to recruit the right candidate.”
Candidates are quick to praise him too for: ‘always going the extra mile to ensure they are well supported’. As independent professional contractor, Alina Listopad, said: “Being a contractor, who is coming from a long permanent career it is important to receive mentoring and coaching. Simon has offered just that. In addition, the back office of Seymour John is seamless!”
Over his long and successful career, Simon has developed a wide network of trusted contacts and has a strong track record of delivering sucessful interim and permanent solutions from newly qualified through to Finance Director appointments, with both blue-chip corporations and SME businesses across a range of sectors.
Outside of work, Simon is happily married with four children. He used to be a keen club rugby player and played at representative level, but has since hung up his boots. He now does a fair impression of a goalkeeper for his 5-a-side football team.
