"While I have been working for Simon Cross I have been in the very fortunate position. Due to what I would like to think was a good pairing of client requirements and the placement of a manager, Simon has managed to keep me in work even through this credit crunch.
I have been working for Simon now continuously since 2007 and am pleased to say that Simon has a very good reputation with his clients for providing the right personnel for their needs.
For my part meeting Simon and working on a freelance basis through his business has been the best career choice I have made. I have had the opportunity to work along side some of the best in the industry. I myself have worked on Two projects with a contract value of 20 Million plus.
On the last major project I was involved in I was asked by the Construction Manager if Simon could provide additional managers to assist with the project, I was joined by two other Managers to assist, one in the role of finishing manager and a further site manager to assist with the M+E. Both the managers had been with working or known to Simon for a number of years and both proved to be a success, one of the managers is already on another project with me for the same contractor.
To close, Simon is a professional recruiter with many experienced personnel at hand, and it is a pleasure to work with his business and be part of their success."
"I was made redundant Xmas 2008 at the height of the economic crisis. I contacted many agents but due to the volume of candidates that were made redundant, agencies were overloaded and weren’t too interested and helpful in finding me a new role. Numerous phone calls and emails were left unanswered. However, I found Simon Cross would regularly update me with perspective job opportunities and was very swift in returning my phone calls.
Simon was also very particular in matching my skill set with the clients requirements – this ensured that no time was wasted putting me across to a prospective employer who were looking for something else! (Happens very often). I was quite lucky that shortly after speaking to Simon, he found me a job which I am still enjoying!"
GARRY LAM - QUANTITY SURVEYOR
"I have worked for Simon previously and he has kept me employed almost continuously since 2007 and in that time he regularly visits me on the various sites to see that I was ok and to get a feel for the project. Simon is always on call for any problems he can help with and I look forward to working with Harvey Jacob for years to come."
STEVE I'ANSON - SITE MANAGER
"Simon and Harvey Jacob have found and kept me in contracts since he started the company back in 2007 finding me suitable roles within good contractors ranging from the large to small. I have known Simon since around the year 2000 when he worked as a Senior Manager for Hill McGlynn. Simon / Harvey Jacob always conduct themselves in a fair, professional and consultative manner and I hope the working relationship continues. I would highly recommend him."
