What people say about Philip

I would like to say a massive thank you to Phil. From initial contact he has been instrumental in helping me find a new role. He has always made himself available for a conversation and happy to offer independent advice despite it not having any direct benefit to himself. Phil ensured I was prepared for my interview and provided an approachable and professional service. Highly recommended. Steve
For me, the most important and sometimes most frustrating aspect of working with recruitment agencies is that impersonal touch and lack of understanding of our business and company values. I'm really pleased with Phil's approach. He not only took the time to get to know BCF as a business, but he also took the time to really understand the type of people we hire. This is evident as all potential candidates Phil has put forward for interview have all been of a high standard. Phil's professional, helpful attitude and approach have been the main factors in me continuing to work with Zenopa for all the previous roles we have had, as I know when I've passed a job spec over to him, he knows what we are looking for and will produce the highest possible candidates.
