Simon on the recruitment industry:

Having had the privilege of working in the recruitment industry for over 3 decades I have seen the UK market mature from small beginnings into a £35 billion service sector. Whilst the industry continues to have evolving challenges surrounding flexible workforce, IR35, continual employment & UK tax law changes, I remain passionate about the opportunities within this vibrant industry. Despite the world getting smaller through the advent of better communications and IT advancements, I remain convinced that the core values of building rapport with customers, maintaining strong business links and becoming specialist within our chosen sectors will place England Associates at the forefront of the industry.
