About Us!

Simon Boyce, Managing Director

With over 28 years Sales Experience Simon started his career within the motor Trade and after 12 years decided to take a side step to work within the travel industry, but soon found in the late 90’s his niche within the social work recruitment sector. He joined a small Essex based Recruitment business and was responsible for the growth from 4 staff to 50 over a 12 years period, his work ethic is second to none and prides himself on his simple morals of treating people how they want to be treated and “never ask someone to do something you would never do yourself”

Simon is a very hands on manager who prides himself on still being a “biller” and will continue to lead by example. Simon strives to implement Hojona’s values of quality by ensuring our organisation strives to ‘not be the biggest, but always the best’. Simon has reviewed and listened to the demand of our current markets within the Health and Social Care Sector and as such in the past months has planned and implemented the launch of two new divisions within the organisation (Medical and MIND/Nursing).

Simon is looking forward to the challenges that the recruitment sectors currently have now and for the future, and welcomes any new talent to join him on his new journey.
