Key facts Joined in 1995 – the first graduate that the company appointed Simon has led NES operations since 2008 and in that time has been a key part of the executive team delivering the sale to AEA investors, as well as refinancing and 3 acquisitions Under Simon's leadership NES has expanded its overseas operations to 45 locations and grown its turnover to over $1 billion Passionate about recruitment “To be a successful recruiter you need hard work, perseverance, and the ability to listen to and fully understand all of the other key people in the recruitment process, whether that be the client, the candidate or a line manager.” “A recruitment consultancy can do more harm than good if they do not represent their candidates in the correct way, and we recognise that we are only as good as the talent that we represent.” “We take the time to understand the people behind the CV, to know their motivations and career aspirations and to learn about their strengths and weaknesses, so that we can make a cultural, as well as technical, match between client and candidate.” What makes us different? “NES Global Talent consultants deliver time after time where many others fail.” “Our recruitment consultants are discipline specific, so that they can talk with authority about the discipline in question.” “We are truly well positioned to help job seekers find work – we have exceptional staff, a true global presence and work with an enviable client base.” “We speak with job seekers from all over the world – and we have consultants that live in their country, speak their language and understand their cultures, which positions us strongly to find work for job seekers from all nationalities.”
