For us, partnership is about people working effectively together - a simple principle easily forgotten.
Through true collaboration and genuine openness, we are able to create and deliver the most appropriate solution to your situation. We focus on the 'situation' - because no matter how long we might have been working with a client or candidate, their needs develop and market conditions change.
Positive interrogation is at the heart of our service offering, encouraging a fresh perspective by asking challenging questions. We are thorough in our approach without being intrusive. We do demand access to the key decision makers and we will ask questions that others may shy away from. But this is what makes us different. This is what helps us deliver better results every time.
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.
I have appointed The Simmance Partnership as my ‘go to’ recruitment partner over many years, in both the context of Executive Selection and as business adviser. The thoroughness of their research methods combined with a close attention to detail on all candidate matters has enabled excellent briefs to be put together, which in turn has led to great people appointments for my businesses. My recommendation for them is unconditional
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.
So, you can be sure that we will delve deeper than most, get to know you better, ask searching questions and challenge the status quo. But crucially, our approach will never hold things up. We know that recruitment can sometimes be one of the most frustrating experiences for a business and sometimes one of the most painful.
We always act quickly, we always strive to make the experience enjoyable and we always deliver results.
Above all, we are proud of what we do.
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.
