In establishing Wills Consultants Simon has successfully worked with a diverse range of small and medium enterprises as well as some of the world’s largest organisations. His reputation has been built on good practice and professionalism and he now has business partnerships spanning decades. One of Simon’s more unique placements was with a candidate that lived in Portugal, who was interviewed in Paris by a UK business for a role in Kazakhstan.
Time off isn’t something Simon gives himself a lot of but when he does you will often find him by the side of a rugby field supporting his son or training and coaching Karate with his daughter.

Nikki brings her creative flare for marketing to the team and is soon to embark on our blog.
When Nikki is not developing her blog she can be found hiking around the local area with Elsa in tow, or at the side of a rugby pitch, regardless of weather, or experimenting in the kitchen.

Gill has worked with Simon for many years and is our administration support. Gill is one of our virtual staff working from home. Always available at the end of the phone and often accompanying us on our business outings, she plays an important part of our support team. She will ensure your CV is checked for flow and content and can spot a spelling mistake at 20 paces. Gill will always make sure your details are showcased to their very best.
Elsa is our office dog here at the Business Centre. She had a tragic start to life and was adopted at 11 months by the Wills family and now, at 6 years old, lives the life of a pampered pooch. We have found having a dog in the office helps with those stressful days and everyone loves getting some fresh air and exercise at lunch by taking her for a walk.
