"I had the pleasure of managing Simon for 14 months. Simon joined my team to help deliver a project with an incredibly tight deadline. The team already had 10 other team members at this point. Simon showed great enthusiasm and put in a lot of additional hard work to get up to speed quickly on the project. This was extremely beneficial for the team. Simon also possesses a valuable skill – he enjoys constant learning and improvement. During the time that I worked with Simon, there were times where we 'threw him in at the deep end' and he rose to the challenge.
Simon is a very candid individual and he displayed many key leadership qualities during our time working together. For example, Simon set a good example to those around him by maintaining a consistent output and high levels of effort. I have no doubt that this behaviour inspired those around him to do the same. He also encouraged his fellow team members and is a skilled frontend developer. He understands well the constraints that sometimes exist when working with slower-moving organisations and he has great interpersonal skills. If the opportunity arises for you to work with Simon, I would encourage you to do so."
