“ I had 14 years experience with my previous employer and great experience in recruiting and being part of assessments. However being on the other side and looking for a new employer was a totally different experience and personally very daunting. Simon at Retail Talent Recruitment was exceptional in supporting me through the recruiting process. His contacts, advice and understanding of what I was looking for was invaluable in giving me the confidence and help in finding my next job and the right role for me”
"Having contacted several agencies Simon at RTR by far offered the best overall experience.
With RTR I received personal quality service with access to the best employers. Throughout my search Simon kept me updated and was always happy to answer my questions. He did a fantastic PR job for me getting me interviews with blue chip companies. I really bought into, and enjoyed his coaching and his style.
Throughout the process Simon gave honest and constructive feedback . If you are looking for a Senior management position RTR understands the market, has the contacts and respects its clients, an excellent partner who I would not hesitate to recommend."
"Simon has always been different to any other recruiter I have come in contact with, really getting to know me and understand my goals. His personal approach throughout any process gave me a real sense of support and with this honest feedback, never afraid to say that something isn’t right for me.
Over the years he has gone on to support me with elements of coaching, checking in regularly during this time. Simon has continually offered some support and challenge, something I always find beneficial as the insight he can offer is so very different to my own way of thinking. Thank you for your continued support!"
"I have known Simon for over 12 years from both a client and candidate perspective and in my opinion he is one of the most professional recruiters currently in the market. He has made a fantastic transition, formerly operating from within a large organisation to successfully operating a quality boutique recruitment/ search agency. He is credible, has a high level of professional and personal integrity, he totally understands his market and importantly he takes the time to get know both his clients and his candidates so that he achieves alignment when putting forward CVs .
I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him as a recruiter of choice because he is always willing to go the extra mile."
"Simon represented me as a recruitment executive when I found myself out of work for the first time in my life. He operated in a way which I found professional and supportive. Unlike many recruitment companies, Simon met with me before agreeing to take me onto his books. He took the time to get to know me, my strengths and weaknesses, before matching my skill sets with those of potential employers.
Before putting me forward to any potential employer, he made sure he briefed me thoroughly on the employer, the job specification, the package involved and the recruitment process. This made sure that the match was as compatible as possible for both parties.
During the time I was out of work Simon kept regular contact with me and ensured I was up to speed on all potential developments.
If it were not for Simon's professionalism and approach I would not have found employment.
I can honestly recommend him as a Coach and Recruiter to employees and employers alike."
'I met with Simon a few months into my job search. I had suffered a couple of rejections and, feeling deflated by the process, was almost ready to give up. The coaching and support Simon provided put me back on track. He was always available to offer insight into the companies I was interested in, assist with interview prep and to help me understand feedback I received. He helped me to work out exactly what I was looking for and where I would fit. Our hard work paid off last week when I was offered an excellent role with a company that I really feel fits. I would recommend Simon’s services to anyone looking for their next career move.'
