Simon’s first career was in teaching before London called and a 10-year spell working within some of the world’s largest staffing suppliers. Simon moved to Sydney in 2009 with the purpose of establishing Precision Sourcing as the number one niche technology staffing partner in Australia. After establishing Precision Sourcing’s foothold in the SAP market, Simon now runs the Precision Sourcing business day-to-day with full accountability for executing the Vision, Goals, and Strategy for the business.
Simon lives in Manly on Sydney’s northern beaches and can be found most weekends enjoying time with his young family or resting his eyes on the sofa whilst watching Harry Potter.
What makes you unique in your field?
I think the fact that I genuinely enjoy what I do and I am passionate about the staffing industry, leadership, sales, and learning.
Why do talented people trust you as a recruiter?
I would like to think it is for several reasons however the obvious differentiator would be the consistent delivery of a positive outcome. By that, I mean that I do what I say I am going to do whether that be simply returning a call.
What is your greatest achievement?
That I have found a purpose which makes my career a hobby and interest rather than a chore. I love what I do and what we are achieving at Precision Sourcing. Outside of my career, I am blessed to have a lovely family.
What would your friends say about you?
I get told I am annoying quite a bit which I think comes from the fact I like things to be right or done in a certain way. My wife tells me I am very positive, which I guess is a decent characteristic to have.
Who would you invite to a dinner party?
My wife and Ricky Gervais…oh, and a guitar.
