Meet The Directors


Simon Voice


Simon is widely recognised as the pioneer of Agile Recruitment in the UK since delivering a team of XP consultants to an ecommerce company in 1999.  Due to this early adopter mentality he has gone on to contribute to projects at Specsavers, Dixons, AOL, BSkyB, BBC, BrightHouse, Laterooms and DWP amongst others.  Community and people are key to the success Simon has achieved, demonstrated by being the founder of the UK Agile Awards in 2010 and being a continued supporter of the Agile Business Conference.



Alex Mauree


Following a very successful career in the professional services industry, Alex came to IT recruitment in 1997.  He quickly established himself as an excellent recruitment professional, developing many key client partnerships working with a varied range of companies from start-ups through to Fortune 500 organisations.  After growing his previous company to a successful acquisition by a US staffing firm, Alex has joined the team at Franklin Bates to pursue his interest in the recruitment industry, and to help develop the service offerings.
