SWIM About Header - Management Team

Recruiters, Coaches, Partners, People Experts

Our SWIM family is over 14 years old and together we have well over 200 years of combined recruitment experience. For many, these are just numbers. For us, these figures represent over a decade of putting people at the forefront of every one of our business decisions.

Founded in 2007 by Simon Wood and Bodil “Boo” Geyer, SWIM began with the ethos of improving the recruitment experience for all involved – those in search of work, those looking for talent, and even the bridge between the two: The Recruiters. It is this people-first approach that remains at the core of all that we do today.

Our business model is to practice and espouse a genuine partnership approach to the recruitment experience, focusing on long-term business relationships with our clients and candidates that last for years. And the approach clearly works! Our business has grown almost entirely by word-of-mouth.

SWIM’s Community Involvement

At Swim Recruiting, our values are more than just abstract ideas — they’re an integral part of how we work. For us, charity and community support work are an opportunity to live our values holistically, both within our work as recruiters, and outside of our professional lives as active members of our community. 

Our principles shape everything from the makeup of our team, to the clients we serve, to the causes we donate our time and resources to support.
