  • 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
  • Working with Simon and the PeopleSource team has been a pleasure and as straight forward as you would want a relationship between a recruitment consultancy and In-House Recruitment team to be. No unnecessary questions, no circumnavigating our team, no direct approach to line management and no off the mark candidate submissions. Simon and his team listen, understand, agree a solution and deliver upon their promises. Time and time again Simon has found strong candidates across multiple disciplines, particularly in key roles across the Fintech landscape. I would not hesitate to use Simon and his team in further assignments and can strongly recommend them. Client of Simon Gukhool
