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.
Steve and his team always endeavour to experience the culture of the organisation that they are in partnership with first-hand by spending many hours immersed in the business to get a true reflection of the opportunities, capabilities and challenges that the organisation faces, which is invaluable insight for both recruiter and candidate!
Steve and his team are incredibly thorough, rigorous and precise in all they do, ensuring that the candidate brief is accurate and detailed. This ensures that at all stages the recruitment process is methodical and efficient for both client and candidate as ultimately his reputation is at stake at all times. From the detail and accuracy in the reports he produces on the candidates, through to the feedback that is provided, Steve and his team ensure that we will find the right candidate each time and not have to make compromises or second guess suitability for the role.
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...
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.
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.
