Why were we engaged?

We were contacted by Simplify in late 2020 to support them in the expansion of the ecommerce department. Starting with the successful placement of The Head of Ecommerce and working out from there.

Helen was a fantastic asset in helping me secure my role. She was very proactive, knowledgeable, honest and open, always able to find answers to any questions I had, and all with a very positive attitude. I’d thoroughly recommend working with Helen.

How did we do?

The first step was to take a detailed brief of the Head of Ecommerce role, gaining a thorough understanding of Simplify’s business growth goals, current landscape and challenges and really building a picture of the type of candidate we should be searching for.

We continued to build on our knowledge and understanding of Simplify’s culture as we continued to build the team with 5 further placements supporting the Head of eCommerce.


Great to work with Helen who really understands the brief and provides quality and choice of candidates. A clear first choice in the tech sector!
