Rebecca is co-founder and joint managing director of multi-award winning SimkissGuy Recruitment and has spent the last 12 years working in the city as an office support and graduate recruitment specialist.
With offices in central Birmingham’s thriving Colmore Business District, and at Blythe Valley Business Park, Solihull, since launching in January 2013 SimkissGuy has quickly developed an excellent reputation across the midlands as a consultancy with a commitment to truly personal service for both clients and candidates alike.
Rebecca is incredibly passionate about promoting Birmingham as a fantastic place to live and work. She is chair of BPS Birmingham Future, an ambassador for “LoveBrum”, about to take on a trusteeship of a local charity, a mentor to a number of students and young professionals across the city and a qualified UK Corporate Governance practitioner.
Keen to retain talented up and coming professionals in the city, Rebecca regularly hosts sessions on CV presentation, effective applications and interview skills for 6th Form, College and University students, to give them the very best chance of successfully securing a role in their chosen career. She was a finalist in 2013’s Birmingham Young Professional of the Year Awards and in 2014 was recognised as a “rising star in business” by an independent board.
A big believer in the value that can be gained from creating positive business connections, Rebecca is also the founder of five successful networking events in the city; The Colmore Curry Club, The Colmore Cocktail Club, The Gatekeepers Guild (for PAs), HR Confidential (for HR Professionals) and The Colmore Breakfast Club.
