  • 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...

  • 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

  • The Simmance Partnership have become our go to recruitment partner for all commercial hires. Steve is great at taking the time to really understand what we are looking for and not afraid to challenge our thinking to help make sure we get the right person. Steve appears to have a great candidate base and I particularly like the way he narrows down the short list and uses an on-line video tool to help ensure we only bring genuine contenders in for interview thus bringing pace and purpose to the process. As an SME with a relatively small commercial population it is crucial we get things right and we keep going back to Steve because he has consistently helped us hire well both in terms of raw talent and cultural fit.

  • In my capacity as Chairman in the start-up venture of Cannaray it was apparent our growth model was going to need exceptional people to support the launch and rapid expansion of the business. I turned to the team at The Simmance Partnership who I have known, and worked with, on several occasions over the past 20 years. Led by Steve, the team always bring tried and tested methods, creative thinking, and a seamless execution to complement our needs around attracting and securing truly brilliant people. Steve is a fixer; give him a people challenge, and he’ll present the right solution. He will deliver time and again at pace. I have always enjoyed the result of his thorough work, but also Steve’s profound knowledge of the FMCG marketplace. He especially knows where to find the best people, to woo and wow them to our doorstep. There are many enthusiastic amateurs in recruitment, only a few are experts like The Simmance Partnership. The team always delight me with their results.

    Clive Sharpe, Chairman & Co-founder

  • 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.
