Simon Massey

Managing Director 

  • 07872 485 486

Simon is the founder of Accountable Recruitment and now has over 24 years in the recruitment industry, spanning two continents.

His vision was to enhance the recruitment experience for candidates and clients alike, bringing honesty, strong ethics and a straightforward approach, which has been immensely successful.

Simon manages the business and is the first to admit he couldn’t do this without the fantastic support he receives from his senior leadership team.   Simon is directly responsible for Executive Recruitment, running the prestigious annual Finance Director Awards programme in conjunction with partners, Brabners, KPMG and HSBC, and the quarterly Executive & FD Club and HRD club events.

He is a well liked and trusted recruitment partner, having built a successful brand over the last 9 years and developed a talented team of recruiters.

Not one to stand still, Simon splits his spare time between his young family and trying to watch as much sport as permits which can be quite a challenge given his busy lifestyle.
