Hey there, I’m Simon and I head up the Talent Acquisition team here at Opticore! Our team is dedicated to not only finding the greatest talent there is out there but also making one of life’s most stressful situations, the job hunt, much more enjoyable.
Let’s be honest, looking for a job can at times feel like you’re on a dating app, with people judging you on what’s written about you, hoping to get that chance to meet and sometimes even being ghosted… so we’re here to change that. We take pride in providing everyone that we speak to a phenomenal experience that means even if you are unsuccessful at the first attempt, you’ll still want to become a member of the Opti-Family in the future.
I started my career in construction where I ran a family business for 10 years before making a pivot into recruitment. Having made a career change myself, I’m passionate about helping you take the next step in your career by joining a company that truly wants you to develop and become the best at whatever you do!
It’s fair to say I’m an extrovert, who is super active. You’ll often find me running or in the gym before work, playing dodgeball, setting myself a challenge for one of our charities or just generally keeping myself busy. Two other passions of mine are food & travel and I try to incorporate them wherever I go. I’ve been very fortunate to travel to all 7 continents, but there are plenty of places I still want to go so any travel tips you have make sure you send them to me!
Finally, I’m a big believer in loving what you do, where you work and who you work with. Opticore has given me that opportunity and if you’re curious to find out more I’d love to speak with you. Feel free to reach out to me directly to set up an informal chat.
