I joined Jenrick IT as a graduate with a BSc in Business and I.T. from Southbank University. After 12 years with the company, I’m working as UK Business Accounts Manager managing a number of key accounts within our Financial Services division covering Investment Banking, Clearing and Exchange Trading. Not only that, I have been developing a number of accounts in the Consultancy and Digital Media sector.

I love working at Jenrick and although we have been going almost 50 years, there’s still a real start up and entrepreneurial feel to the business. We constantly innovate the way we do things and as anyone who knows our industry well enough, it’s never boring!

I’ve been able to establish relationships with some of the biggest brands in the world as well as helping a number of tech start-ups get off the ground, I love the versatility of the role - one minute we are building a test team for a major investment bank, the next we are recruiting a CTO for a Shoreditch start-up!

I especially like the amount of positive feedback we receive from our Clients and Contractors. I often get comments that our recruitment process is one the ‘most comprehensive’ in the market. It confirms to me that the way we do things in Jenrick, is the right way

Outside of work I really enjoy skiing, cycling, cooking, live music and collecting art.

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.
