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

  • The Simmance Partnership has guided us through recruitment projects offering a cocktail of insight, inspiration and motivation. Steve is, of course, successful in managing the fundamentals of recruitment and when that is combined with his wide knowledge of our world and his great contacts, it gives him an edge

    Clare Blampied, Managing Director, Sacla

  • 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

    Santiago Fernando, International Area Director, San Miguel

  • It was clear from my first interaction with Steve and his team that we had chosen the right partner for our recruitment needs. Their rigorous approach and responsiveness to our feedback allowed us to accelerate with pace through the recruitment process. Steve’s brings a wealth of valuable experience to the table and helped greatly in screening and selecting suitable candidates for interview stage. This was evidenced by the time he took to understand our business, category and job spec. We look forward to working with The Simmance Partnership for our future Sales and Marketing needs.

    John Mason, General Manager Europe

  • The Simmance Partnership don’t just take a brief, they are able and willing to challenge our thinking with the intention of ensuring we get what we really want.

    Damian Clarke, Managing Director UK, Ireland and MEA, Freixenet

  • 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.
