An engineer turned entrepreneur, Simon started the recruitment marketplace, Hiring Hub, in a bid to place trust and integrity at the heart of the UK’s recruitment industry, and help companies take the hassle out of hiring.

Recently named by GP Bullhound as one of the North’s Top 50 fastest growing technology companies, Hiring Hub is used by the UK’s smartest companies, connecting them to a community of specialist, independent recruitment agencies and helping both parties work together more efficiently online.

Simon was named Software Entrepreneur of the Year at the Digital Entrepreneur Awards, and is an alumni of’s Young Guns.

Outside of Hiring Hub, Simon has written three books, chaired the Government’s Northwest Business Council and is an ambassador for National Apprenticeships.

He is married with two young children and lives in Cheshire where, in his spare time, he cycles (a lot).
