As CEO, Simon is committed to ensuring that Guidant Global continually champions a better, more forward-thinking, people-focused approach to talent acquisition and engagement; setting it apart from the ‘recruitment-by-numbers’ approach which sadly still prevails in the industry.

Simon is a strong believer that by offering an exceptional standard of service in more geographies for all clients, candidates, suppliers and employees alike, everyone benefits.
Featured in SIA's European Top 100 most influential people in the European staffing market for the last few years, Simon sits on Impellam’s ED&I panel and is an executive board member of the Recruitment Industry Disability Initiative (RIDI).
