About Simon:
Simon absolutely loves to help people improve their careers and lifestyles, mental health and wellbeing, by connecting them to employers that will value and empower them.

Spending time with his family; four children, two dogs and his cat, is Simon’s biggest pastime.
Whenever he does get any free time, he likes to keep fit by training with a professional boxer and is also a huge music fan – playing and listening (jazz & funk are his go to genres)
