    Simon is very knowledgeable in the IT industry and is a very pleasant and easy going person. I really felt comfortable chatting to him whilst I was looking for a new position and he comes across really well. He was able to offer his experience but wasn't a pushy recruitment consultant which more often than not you find these days. He was able to answer all questions that I had and possesses outstanding communication skills which helped by his happy going personality. If I was looking for a new position my first port of call would be too contact Simon. This also applies for when I am hiring new staff. I know I can trust his judgement and his awareness of service managers to be able to find suitable and reliable candidates. Simon's Client
