Simon Godley was referred to me through another contact, which proved to be probably the most valuable referral I have ever had. Simon worked tirelessly to keep me fully informed at each stage of the recruitment process and discuss the strategy for securing the position I sought. The competition was extremely tough due to a global economic recession, but Simon ensured that I was best prepared at all times. The result of Simon’s efforts is that I have now secured an excellent position in a market leading organisation with potential for future career progression. I can honestly say having used many of the recruitment agents in the market place over the years that dealing with Simon was truly a pleasure with took the stress out of the process , whilst feeling in control of matters without constantly having to chase him up. I would always place Simon at the top of my list if looking to recruit or be recruited in the future.

After speaking to many recruiters and getting frustrated with their reluctance to listen to what I was saying, I was very pleased to finally interact with someone that was able to find me a job role that was suitable and not one that was trying to be pushed onto me.
When dealing with Simon Godley he was very receptive and returned my calls/emails etc within a reasonable amount of time. He always gave the impression that he was actively looking for the kind of role that I was after, and provided appropriate suggested vacancies.
I would definitely recommend Simon, as he interacted with me professionally and didn’t treat me as his next pay cheque!
