The SimkissGuy team have had a very busy and rewarding 12 months, a lot has changed and moving forward into 2019, we are very hopeful that our trajectory remains on the same path!
In 2018, SimkissGuy Recruitment celebrated its 5th birthday! We marked the occasion with a wonderful party and drinks reception at Hotel Du Vin, our new neighbours, bringing together our favourite people to raise a glass and toast to this milestone!
Secondly, the amazing attendees of the Colmore Curry Club (which also turned 5 in 2018!) collectively raised over £1000 for our favourite charity LoveBrum! Over 400 people attended over the course of the year and their reviews encourage us to continue the Colmore Curry Club for many more years to come…
“As always, thank you for arranging yet another successful Curry Club gathering. I cannot fault the food, or the company – one of the better, if not the best, networking events in town!” – Richard, Director
This isn’t the only contribution we have made to LoveBrum, we support them in any way we can, that is why Richard Guy helped to raise in excess of £30,000 – training tirelessly and defeating the elements in the stormy Great Birmingham Run half marathon this October!
Team ‘SimkissGuy Tikkas Your Taste Buds’ came a solid second in the quiz at the Curry King of Birmingham 2018. Although we firmly believe we deserved that extra point to make us hit the top spot just for being headline sponsors for the third year running 😉.
In other news, we were delighted to receive some unexpected and rather humbling accolades over the year! In 2018, SimkissGuy Recruitment has been recognised as Recruitment Company of the Year by CV Magazine and our inspirational Managing Director Rebecca Simkiss, won Woman of the Year at DIB Downtown in Brum Awards! Two amazing awards, demonstrating that the SimkissGuy Recruitment team’s hard work and dedication is recognised throughout the region!
Last but not least, 2018 saw us move to a brand new home at the beautiful Edmund Gardens in Edmund Street… we have stunning new offices which was decorated in (very on brand) purple and silver tinsel at Christmas time!
We seem to have flown through 2018 and are so ready to take on 2019, bring it on!
