WHAT PEOPLE SAY Andrew
"I had the pleasure of placing Simone in two separate roles during my time as a specialist HR recruiter at Hays. Both of these roles proved challenging, with complex environments, difficult cultures, workforce issues and uncertainty amid political reform and change. Simone was successful in both of these roles due to her resilience, strong strategic HR knowledge, desire to see improvement on individual and organisational levels, and almost sheer stubbornness to get the job done, in spite of the aforementioned challenges. Simone is a highly respected and successful HR practitioner."
-- Andrew Marshall, HR Business Partner, Jacobs
WHAT PEOPLE SAY Sonia
"Simone has a wealth of experience as a HR professional which has resulted in great communication and engagement skills. I found that Simone really actively listened to me which is a very much underrated skill.
After completing the motivational maps questionnaire I met with Simone to talk about the results, even though I am pretty self aware I still took away some great insights into my own motivation and why I don't gel with some people.
I think that the motivational maps work that Simone is doing would be really insightful for team working including management and exec teams, as it provides insight into how you can create win:win solutions."
-- Sonia Lynch, Human Resources Manager, Bradley Allen Love Lawyers
