Since 2001

Since 2001 The Simmance Partnership has been offering discerning clients and candidates an industry defining recruitment and career planning service. Focusing on senior commercial management, we help to bring through the most talented middle managers and identify the very best senior people for the rigours of the board.

Our Philosophy

Dedicated focus

We are recognised as an industry authority on FMCG Sales and Marketing recruitment, with an approach that is as revealing as it is refreshing. SME, mid-sized and leading organisations come to us because of our dedicated focus on them and our ability to see beyond the homogeny of the recruitment industry. Talented candidates choose us because of the clients we work with and the career counsel we give freely.

Our Way

Thinking beyond

Our practice is built around three core values:

  • The knowledge, insight and market reputation of our team
  • The guiding principle of working in partnership
  • A truly personal service

Our passionate adherence to these ideals delivers clear thinking, successful outcomes and relationships that go far beyond an assignment or individual.

Our Relationships

  • Steve and team are my go-to recruitment company when it comes to finding Leadership talent on either a permanent or interim basis. He understands the purpose of our business and our core values which makes the selection process so much more effective. I have always been impressed with the candidates he has presented to us and am pleased to have them on my team and on our journey to create the best dairy moments for generations to come.

    Julie Plant, Managing Director

  • 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

  • We have worked with The Simmance Partnership for three years on a number of assignments across a range of functions, and different levels of seniority. Steve has taken the time to understand our business and each specific brief to provide a good selection of candidates through his extensive network and industry knowledge, with many of these successful hires still part of our team.

  • The Simmance Partnership have been fantastic partners in helping to build our Commercial talent. They spent time to really understand our vision, needs and culture, which helped pull together a strong candidate list, meant the process was really efficient, and ultimately brought in the right talent. We look forward to continuing our partnership, and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to others.

  • From the very first moment we started the search process to completion Steve and his team were always offering value and insight that helped us make the correct decisions
