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.

In a world filled with text, we start conversations.

Our Way

  • 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.

  • Having dealt with Steve and the team for over 30 years as both candidate and client I now exclusively turn to The Simmance Partnership for all my sales and marketing recruitment. Their knowledge of the European FMCG market is 2nd to none, Steve and the team have always listened to my needs and continued to deliver accurately against our briefs. Over the years their headhunting has been 2nd to none and their quality of candidates has allowed me to build several successful businesses.

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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.
