Introducing...

Philip Fanthom

Managing Director

I joined Jenrick in 1997, as a Junior Consultant working within both permanent and contract markets.

From 2000 I began to focus the majority of my efforts within The City, successfully developing relationships within the Banking & Financial Services Sector - most of whom are still clients today.

In May 2006, I made the move to become Jenrick Group's Sales Manager, before gaining the opportunity to return to Jenrick IT as Sales Director, before taking on the role of Managing Director.
