Miranda Gregory - Managing Partner: 

Miranda began her recruitment career in Singapore in 2006. Since then, she has worked for both multinational agencies and in Talent Acquisition for an American software giant. During this time, she recognised the importance of both relationships and delivering outstanding service.

Upon looking to go back to work herself, she realised that there was a wealth of employable talent in Yorkshire and across the UK who can only work on a flexible basis. Yet there seemed to be limited assistance with regards to advice and support for these candidates. Hence GPS Return was born! Miranda has become passionate about helping returning Mums and Dads throughout the full recruitment cycle and also about educating employers about the benefits of introducing flexible working to their business.

When not working, Miranda loves walking in the stunning Yorkshire countryside with her husband Simon and children Holly and William and generally prefers not to be too far away from cake!


Simon Gregory - Managing Partner:

Yorkshire born and bred, Simon started recruiting in 2004 and has since recruited across Europe and Asia recruiting for some of the biggest companies in the world, from Google to GSK and HSBC to Shell.

Returning to Harrogate in 2015, he realised that, whilst there are a lot of recruitment companies out there, very few were prioritising the client’s or candidate’s needs above their own. Nor were they working hard to understand the people they were working with or to build trust. With that in mind Simon set up GPS Talent Solutions with some simple goals in mind – to save our clients time and money, to reduce their risk and to become a trusted recruitment partner. Since then GPS Return was born and although the goals remain the same, he has committed himself to a new mission - to make it a normal part of anyone's career to have a break and to easily return to work.

A keen photographer, Simon is also a big Rugby and F1 fan although he is happiest when spending time with Miranda and their two children – Holly and William.
