Ian Parry

Managing Director Trulawn Ltd

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. I felt he really listened to the brief and understood the needs of Trulawn


Jon Mott

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.

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.

In the world of recruitment Simon is a diamond. His genuine relationship focused approach is refreshing and it is an absolute pleasure working with him. One thing I love about Simon’s approach is that he truly believes in his candidates and is very good at finding the right candidate, both culturally and technically for the job. I have worked with Simon many times and would HIGHLY recommend him and Franrec to any franchise business looking to recruit the right person

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.


Graham Mylchreest VFP

The Franchise Guy | MD at Be Franchising | Helping businesses to grow by franchising | UK & International Consultant

November 13, 2018, Simon worked with Graham in the same group

I have had the pleasure of working closely with Simon in different roles over the last 20 years and have always been impressed with his knowledge, work rate and good humour. Simon demonstrated his sharp intellect and understanding of complex issues while we worked together as members of the board at the British Franchise Association. He went on to demonstrate his entrepreneurial flair by setting up and eventually selling a Driver Hire franchise, leaving to fill a gap in the franchise sector for a specialist franchise recruitment company. Simon’s expertise in franchising is unquestionable and his reputation is unblemished. Anyone looking for franchise specific candidates should call Simon for a professional solution.
