Say hello to the Senior Leadership team

Rebecca Simkiss

Co-Founder and Managing Director

Rebecca is Co-Founder and Managing Director of SimkissGuy Recruitment, managing the strategic direction and day to day operations of the business. A Birmingham girl born and bred, Becky is passionate about the city, and has worked as a recruitment expert in the Colmore Business District since the summer of 2004. Becky brings leadership, energy, drive and a passion to be the best we can be to the SimkissGuy brand, and is not happy unless she has 101 things happening at the same time, whether it be launching a new networking event, or delivering a keynote speech to upcoming entrepreneurs. Away from SimkissGuy, Becky is Chair and Trustee of LoveBrum, a former Chair of BPS Birmingham Future, a mentor to several young professionals and sits on several regional boards including West Midlands Women’s Voice. Rebecca’s awards include a Fellowship from Birmingham Metropolitan College for her contribution to mentoring, 2017 Birmingham Businesswoman of the Year (Birmingham Awards) and 2018 Women of the Year (City of Birmingham Business Awards). Becky doesn’t have much free time, but away from SimkissGuy she loves holidays with her husband, spending time with her two young nieces, good food and enjoys nothing better than sitting in the sunshine with a good book and a glass of wine.
