I first joined the company back in 1984 to assist in the payroll department of Technic Services, one of our Recruitment Companies.

My initial stay was only meant to be short term, as I was returning to teaching (my profession) in the near future. Yet, I really began to enjoy myself, especially as my role was constantly expanding and my involvement within the company increased.

After gaining experience at a firm of Chartered Accountants I returned to the company in 1988 with the formation of Simon Holdings, the parent company of the Group. My part within that ‘project’ was to centralise and consolidate the administration and accounts throughout all the companies. This was the first move in bringing the companies much closer together.

Actually, it’s only when I think back that I realise how far we’ve come to reach our current home in the Clock Tower. There is no way I will ever forget our first office – a hut at Fairoaks, a small independent airfield near Woking. We had to call the Air Traffic Control Tower if we wanted the heating changed and there wasn’t even a loo. There’s nothing like the good old days!

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.
