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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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...

    Bob Sperry, Partner, Kainos Capital

  • 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.

    Rob Amar, Managing Director, RH Amar

  • 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
