Our Philosophy

The Simmance Partnership is a boutique specialist recruiter, which means we concentrate on our clients and their needs, not revenue or corporate pressures. Our entire approach is underpinned by a commitment to positive interrogation. We get to know you and your situation, every assignment is different and must be viewed with an objective perspective and a fresh pair of eyes. We provide solutions that strike at the heart of the issue, rather than perpetuate it.

If we can deliver real value, you will want to work with us again and that gives us a vested interest in delivering the best long-term solution.

We are driven by a desire to challenge the industry norm and turn what is often perceived as a painful process into an enjoyable, tangible and beneficial experience for everyone - the client, the candidate and us.

This is supported by expertise, experience and knowledge-gathering that informs every solution. In any given year, the team engage with more than a 1000 different people and we continually immerse ourselves in the latest client, trade and business information.

Our Way

  • Working with The Simmance Partnership is a pleasure. Their understanding of the FMCG market is outstanding meaning time and again they have found us strong senior talent for challenging international briefs. We expect high standards; they have presented exceptional shortlists and delivered and executed with 100% success. I would not hesitate to recommend Steve and his team.

  • The Simmance Partnership and I have worked together on and off for over 20 years and I will always have them on my preferred supplier list no matter which company I am working for!

    Andy Jones, HR Director Europe & Americas, TCC

  • Steve and the team at The Simmance Partnership have been a great partner to us in our resourcing needs. They bring a high level of market knowledge, a passion for helping finding exactly the right candidate for the brief and are always reliable, professional and focussed in the service they offer

    Gavin Blair, UK General Manager

  • Steve knows the UK Talent Pool, like no other. He engaged with us quickly, showed us an energy and agility to make things happen at pace – all of which we needed to create an entire team from scratch. Steve is refreshingly different to his counterparts within the recruitment community. He is not afraid to challenge preconceptions...

    Bob Sperry, Partner, Kainos Capital

  • I have appointed The Simmance Partnership as my ‘go to’ recruitment partner over many years, in both the context of Executive Selection and as business adviser. The thoroughness of their research methods combined with a close attention to detail on all candidate matters has enabled excellent briefs to be put together, which in turn has led to great people appointments for my businesses. My recommendation for them is unconditional
