We Make People Happy

"We recently appointed Simon at FranRec to undertake a search and selection project for a key member of our Franchise team. His industry knowledge and contacts together with his professional approach secured us an outstanding candidate for the role..." Development Director at Papa John's (GB) Ltd

"The art of recruitment in the franchise industry is one that only a few truly understand. As a "village" its a fact that everyone knows who is moving often before they do! This is where Simon excels in confidence he can bring the right candidate to your door for the right price." Michael Graham, formerly MD at Chemex

"Simon has many years of experience in Franchising, from both sides of the fence, and as an executive in the British Franchise Association ( BFA) . He will understand exactly what you need and knows the market  inside out". Anthony Round

"I found Simon to be extremely knowledgeable of the franchise market and was also encouraged by the fact that he has been a franchisee himself in the past. I felt he really listened to the brief and understood the needs of Trulawn". Ian Parry Managing Director Trulawn Ltd

"I just wanted to thank Simon Wise for assisting in the recruitment of Naz Sen. Naz has been a fantastic hire, adding a lot of value to the team since joining, with more yet to come.

As Simon Wise will tell you - I have high standards and he knows that I won’t lower them, regardless of the recruitment environment. He’s just placed another person that will soon be joining #mathnasiumuk.

Despite my starting position of ‘Simon, they have to be amazing because I’ve got another recruiter already on the case and they are awesome too’.

He accepted and exceeded that challenge!" John Preston UK Managing Director Mathnasium

"I’ve worked with Simon many times over many years. I’ve used FranRec to recruit for key roles and Simon has always been able to translate the needs of the role and cultural fit helping me fill several positions. I’ve also trusted Simon to look for roles suited to my skills as a candidate. Great franchise industry knowledge and contacts, always willing to help, someone I trust in the industry". Sue Moore, Franchise Growth Consultant

"For our latest and most senior appointment to date at Rev PR, we wanted someone with both PR experience and some knowledge of the franchise industry. Lucy and I thought headhunting would be the right approach but we just didn't have the time to dedicate to that ourselves. We've known Simon for a long time, meeting at bfa events over the years.


The process was simple - share our job spec and explain how keen we were to find the right personality to complement our team. Simon went away to do what he does best and within a few days he came back with an ideal candidate! He was able to deliver options to us in days that could have taken us months of advertising and diverted our focus from client delivery.


We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Simon and would certainly use his recruitment services again". Sally Anne Butters  -  RevPR

"Simon supported me with securing my position with Service Master recently. I can honestly say that I found Simon really helpful and he has a real understanding of both his clients and candidates. I would highly recommend Simon to any potential candidates and companies looking for their next hire or their next role.." Vikki Donnachie Brand Leader at Merry Maids at ServiceMaster (UK) Ltd

"Simon is the ‘Go To ‘ person for placements and job opportunities within the Franchise industry". y Round.

Anthony Round, Trebarwith Consulting.
