Simon Haupt

Simon Haupt started his construction recruitment path in 1998 after apparently failing to take up a professional football career.

Throughout the years Simon has established a first-class reputation for a wealth of successful assignments and industry knowledge, thus becoming a seasoned pro.

After serving his apprenticeship with Henry Recruitment, he joined the Solution revolution in 2006 as a Founding Director and is responsible for the management and direction of the Construction and Professional Consultancy Divisions.


Solution – Divisional Executive

2006 to Present

In 2006 I was part of the creation of Solution and joined as Founding Director with a focus to establish the brand throughout the construction and professional practice arenas.

I established approved supply status with many leading contractors, project management consultancies, end users and property developers whilst continuing all long term relationships which I had developed over the previous 8 years.

This desk concentrated on permanent and contract placements whilst offering clients a broad range of recruitment solutions including training and development programmes, contingency and retained search.

During this time I have been responsible for the business sales and the recruitment of consultants into Solution.

Henry Recruitment Ltd – Construction Divisional Manager

1998 – 2006

Originally joined Henry Recruitment to run the permanent construction division, responsible for the placement of white collar professionals into major blue chip contractors, building consultancies and specialist organisations.

I successfully developed and maintained long term relationships with many leading industry organisations.

During this time I established myself as an industry name and the No 1 permanent sales consultant within Henry Recruitment Ltd.

Apart from day to day responsibilities, which included ongoing adherence to recruitment law and eligibility to work in the UK (checking of passports / visa’s / qualifications), I proved beneficial and successful in managing the development of many consultants across the business offering one-on-one sales training, advice and direction.

As a senior member of the sales team, I was invited to join the company’s management team taking up a wider role and in relation to the growth and development of the organisation.
