Hi, I’m Simon, Recruitment Director at Straco Recruitment.
I started the business way back in 1997 (when even I was cool!) My market knowledge, cracking sense of humour and being a ‘people person’, shaped Straco into the success it is today.
I’ve grown the business with emphasis on a quality, tailored approach, to building long-term relationships with clients.
When I’m not heading up the team, I’m singing with my band, The Playground Chairs (a really cool indie band from the 90s). I also do my bit for the local community, by running my lad’s football team.
