Founding Director

Simon celebrates a career in franchising spanning over 20 years and offers unrivalled access to the franchise talent pool. 

From 1998 to 2005 Simon was the Deputy Director-General of the British Franchise Association (bfa), responsible for membership recruitment, marketing and revenue growth.

In 2005 Simon left the bfa, ‘put his money where his mouth was’ and bought a recruitment franchise in North London.

His recruitment franchise thrived built on a reputation for 'the best candidates and customer service’ and a genuine enthusiasm and commitment for the business of recruitment.

After eight very successful years as a Franchisee, and with his love of ethical franchising and recruitment still very much intact Simon sold his business and set about building FranRec

Simon recently assisted me in finding me my next career move. I was looking for my next step on the career ladder and something which would be a new challenge for me but I was struggling to decide what direction to take this in. 

Simon was fantastic at helping with this process, after discussions about what I enjoy, my strengths etc he helped advise on what type of positions he would look at for me. He then proceeded to find me my perfectly suited position, which I'm thoroughly enjoying. 

I would definitely recommend Simon and FranRec for people both looking for work and employers alike for a professional and affective recruitment solution.

I was impressed with Simon’s speed in response and ensuring that I got the interview. The rest was down to me!
It was a pleasure working with Simon and achieving a very positive outcome.

“The entire experience with Franrec was a breeze. It only took them two weeks to match me with my job and it suited my every requirement. I wholeheartedly recommend working with them!”

Dear Simon, thank you so much for providing me with the introduction ...2021 started badly for me following redundancy and I did not enjoy the task of starting a new career outside of retail. I'm so grateful that you took the time and effort to remember me and my skills and passions which ultimately lead to my new role. I don't think I've felt so excited and optimistic about my career for a long time. I wish you all the success you deserve in your business.
