Simon Gray is an experienced recruiter, chartered accountant, and entrepreneur. As a consultant and then founding director of his own recruitment business, he has extensive experience on the frontline, acting for both job seeker and employer. After many years in the recruitment industry, he realized that the best way to help job seekers at any level was not to find them a position himself but to empower them to find the right opportunity for themselves.
This led to the publication of his first book Super Secrets of the Successful Jobseeker and the formation of Career Codex, a careers and employability training company.
Since then he has written two more books, Super Secrets of Successful Executive Job Search and Super Secrets of the Successful First-Time Jobseeker.
Simon is an experienced speaker and commentator; he has appeared on BBC National News at Ten and has been quoted in The Guardian, Financial Times and The Wall Street Journal.
He is a past president of the Nottingham, Derby and Lincoln Society of Chartered Accountants and a freeman of the City of London (Merchant Taylors' Company).
In his leisure time Simon is a keen martial artist and while living and working in Japan, he completed the world famous Yoshinkan Aikido Senshusei course with the Tokyo Riot Police.
Simon can be contacted via his website careercodex.com, on Twitter @careercodex or via LinkedIn - he is always happy to hear from people who have read his book.
