Phillip has put me in contact with my last 2 employers each role was/is exactly what I was looking for. I have been very impressed with Phil on both occasions and would happily recommend him as he would be the first consultant I would call if I was looking for a new position.

Phil works in the notoriously difficult but critical area of recruiting talent - many try but fail. But since Phillip has chosen to specialise in the sourcing new business talent he is someone who not only knows his area of the trade but also follows through by delivering an excellent service. Integrity is everything and it has been a pleasure to work with Phil and We are Generator.

Phil took on a difficult brief that required a deep understanding of the Business Development/Sales marketplace. He delivered a set of profiles that were exceptional - all high-calibre, on-brief and we filled the role quickly (having had the choice of a variety of highly qualified candidates, all of whom would have provided a solid solution to our business needs). Good stuff.


Brian O'Sullivan 14-07-2014

Philip is ano nonsense professional, but personable with it, which is a refreshing combination. A good contacts book and a thorough understanding of what is needed make him a confidence inspiring recruiter.


Liz Wilson 14-07-2014

Having just hired a new business director through Phil, I can't imagine why you'd use anyone else to hire new business people. I briefed two companies - a specialist in new business (Phil) and a broader advertising specialist - and the difference was astounding. Phil has a total grasp of the new business talent in (and outside) the market, he understands everyone's different styles and strengths so he can give genuine recommendations and insight, and importantly he manages the recruitment process in a very focused and energetic way - he keeps suggestions coming, he keeps the pace moving and gently leads you to a clear decision. It was a pleasure to work with Phil and to know I was in the hands of a real expert in his field.


Rachelle Headland 14-07-2014

I have worked with Phillip twice now to find new business people, both times I found the candidates he sent for interview to be of great calibre and both times we ended up recruiting through Phillip. I would recommend his service to others, he is approachable, good value and obviously knows what good sales people look like.


Gail Hinkinson 14-07-2014

Phillip is efficient, reliable and excellent at finding perfect opportunities, and matching consultants to agencies. I cannot recommend him too highly.


Nick Gianakakis 14-07-2014

Having heard of Phillip through a mutual friend and being made redundent just before Christmas, I find myself in a job within mere months. Matching my abilities to the opportunity and providing me with regular updates. Phillip was professional and curteous throughout the process and I am happy to recommend him to those searching for a great recruitment specialist in the future.


Claire Billings 14-07-2014

Phillip hired me into my current job and I cannot fault the way he works. He has total integrity and knows when to sell a job or company's attributes to you and when to give you time to think. And I found him really easy to talk to and any questions I had he answered really thoroughly and with total confidence. He has fantastic judgement when placing the right people in the right role and I can't recommend him enough. I am delighted with the results of his work in placing me at RAPP.


Sam Lythgoe 14-07-2014

Philip is an excellent recruiter. He listens to the specifics of your brief and then makes sure the candidates he puts forward entirely match. He has an excellent follow up manner and is not overly protective of his candidates. And ultimately we had the position of Business Development Manager filled within about 3 months. All round a pleasure to deal with


Jane Douglas 14-07-2014

From 2 briefs to 2 appointments within 2 weeks. Phillip totally 'got' what we needed and delivered fast. Brilliant.


Robin Bonn 14-07-2014

Phillip is one of the good guys - good to work with and he gets results. Twice I've been in the job market and twice he's brought me more suitable options than any other agent. He also always does what he commits to doing - which is always very welcome. Heartily recommended.
