Simon Childs


Simon has spent the past 25 years in the Asian recruitment and staffing industry. He co-founded and then sold a leading executive search business in Japan to Recruit Holdings, Asia's largest HR services group.

This acquisition marked Recruit's first domestic recruitment venture in their 50-year history, providing them a platform to further develop executive search in Japan's domestic markets, as well as to expand their recruiting services across Asia. Simon initiated several transactions across Asia for Recruit Holdings' International Recruitment Business division under the RGF brand.

Since leaving Recruit Holdings in 2020, Simon has advised on several buy and sell-side transactions. He is a Regional Advisor to James Caan’s Recruitment Entrepreneur, responsible for developing the platform in Asia.
