SimkissGuy Recruitment Group, one of the Midlands’ leading recruitment consultancies, has announced that Rebecca Simkiss will be heading up the firm as the sole Managing Director moving forward. Having co-founded the business with Richard Guy almost a decade ago, this new chapter follows an exciting period of growth and expansion for the business within the past 12 months.
This latest move for the award-winning firm follows on from its strong commercial growth throughout 2022, ahead of its upcoming 10th anniversary. From its recently formed Hospitality Division team growing by 50% within four months to experiencing a 65% surge in demand for its specialist consultancy services, the business has already gone from strength to strength.
Commenting on the new direction for the company, Rebecca Simkiss, Managing Director, said:
“After an amazing nine years working together to establish one of the region’s leading recruitment consultancy firms, Richard and I are set to end our professional partnership ahead of the business’ 10-year anniversary. Whilst I’m sad to be ending this chapter together, I am so excited to continue leading the team as we move forwards, growing leaps and bounds and refining our services and capabilities further.
As well as actively recruiting for multiple roles across the business, we’ve recently acquired several new clients across multiple sectors after establishing our new, specialist divisions during the past 12 months and can’t wait to deliver our signature expertise to fulfil their recruitment needs.”
With more than 40 years of experience between the duo, SimkissGuy Recruitment Group was co-founded by Rebecca Simkiss and Richard Guy in 2013 and has grown rapidly since its inception, picking up a wealth of awards along the way. Alongside Rebecca taking the reigns as the sole head of the company, the team has also recently welcomed both Sarah Barnsley to its Commercial Division and Abby Goldie heading up its Hospitality Division.
With offices located in central Birmingham, SimkissGuy provides dedicated specialist support for the office, graduate, commercial, healthcare and hospitality sectors, having established its trusted reputation within the region’s recruitment scene.
