Meet the team

Every member of staff is an experienced IT recruiter who has an extensive network of professional contacts. Although each team member is fully trained in general recruitment, they also have developed their own speciality area. We work collaboratively to bring maximum insight to every recruitment challenge and we know that our staff are our greatest asset and we invest in them with on-going training and development.

Adam Phillips
Operations Manager

I have a wealth of management, training and recruitment experience gained within Financial Services. After joining JNC in late 2014, I have really enjoyed being able to positively influence the structure, strategy and direction of the business. My role encompasses many aspects of HR, Management, Finance and all the Back Office functions that keep the business running smoothly. I enjoy the challenge of endeavouring to keep the team on track in terms of compliance, process, structure and documentation, although this can at times feel like herding cats.

 

In addition, I manage key accounts within the business and my experience of the full recruitment cycle helps me to offer effective and pragmatic advice to our client and candidates. I am also not adverse to getting involved in producing and analysing MI for the business.

 

I enjoy spending time with my family and the odd ale or two (not generally at the same time!) and have been known to hog the limelight at Karaoke.

 

Your favourite holiday destination? 

Italy

 

Your favourite film? 

Shaun of the Dead

 

Your greatest achievement so far?

I somehow managed to dislocate my shoulder on a charity Christmas pudding race for the Martlets Hospice…that is some achievement
