About Waq'e Consultants

After 33 years in the recruitment industry, 18 of which were at managing director level, I decided it was time to set up my own consultancy to support the profession I love: recruitment.

This new venture offers consultancy support, leadership mentoring and sales training within the recruitment agency sector.

It also offers advice and guidance to in-house recruitment teams within all sectors, whether public or privately held, and to companies of all sizes.

About Geoff Sims

Geoff began his professional career as an accountant with Unilever, Litton Industries and the Hunting Group. He moved into recruitment, joining the Hays team in Leeds as a trainee consultant in 1984. Over the next 20 years he was promoted to a series of directorships within Hays in accountancy and finance, and in the Office Support and contact centres.

Geoff was instrumental in the development of Hays businesses across the UK. Today, Hays is a leading national supplier of permanent and interim staff.

In 2011 he was appointed managing director for all the Hays businesses in the West and Wales region, then moved to his last role in the company, as well as continuing his national leadership of Hays Office Support.

He also established the Hays business in Sweden, and was actively involved in early ventures in the Netherlands that led to the acquisition and growth of the business there.

Geoff spent many years as a judge of the European Call Centre and Customer Service Awards, and currently sits on the council for the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) in the East of England.

He appears regularly on BBC East as a commentator on local employment trends and issues. He is also proud to be part of Leeds University Business School Management division’s Leaders in Residence Programme.


"Geoff has a wealth of knowledge like no other, he also has a knack for identifying and developing talent. Fantastic at what he does, passionate and proud, always tries to do his very best for the business, exceeding all expectations in the process. A results-driven leader and thoughtful individual.

Geoff is a great 'out-of-box' thinker, and an excellent ambassador for any brand he works for."
