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.
In a world filled with text, we start conversations.
The Simmance Partnership and I have worked together on and off for over 15 years and I will always have them on my preferred supplier list no matter which company I am working for!
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...
It was critically important that our recruitment partner really understood our business needs, culture and values. The Simmance Partnership's credentials were second to none in this area.
Steve carefully balances the need to find strong cultural fit as well as basic functional capability, and he is not afraid to challenge and probe to ensure a good fit. In a world of grey, he adds colour.
For me it's about the lifetime of experience and relationship building combined with Steve's long term approach to recruitment that counts. We’ve known each other and worked together for over 20 years and every time recruitment is mentioned Steve is top of mind as one of the UK’s prominent FMCG recruiters and trusted advisors when it comes to judging people. He is very well networked with the best candidates and his business is without doubt a serious player in recruitment.
Sooner or later, you’ll want to talk to us.
Guided by the candid approach of Steve Simmance, who has been an FMCG recruiter for over 25 years, we provide a true counterbalance to the norm, encouraging transparency and reality, factors so often missing in our industry today.
