Jamie started Sheldon Phillips in 2012 with the aim of building a successful and rewarding recruitment agency that would aim to become leaders in its field. Since joining the recruitment industry in 2006, Jamie has worked in a number of exciting sectors including IT and Construction.

"Why did you name the business Sheldon Phillips?"

You wouldn't believe how many times I get asked this question. I actually have my cousin and her husband to thank for this. It involved their wedding in Italy, a big family brainstorm session and a LOT of red wine. Long story short, my grandmother's middle name was Sheldon and her father won medals for bravery in WWII when shooting down a German bomber. Add this to my Fathers name (and my middle name) Phillip and Sheldon Phillips was born.

"Work aside, what do you like to do for fun?"

Well, I'm actually a semi-professional singer and have been since I was 17 years old. I love nothing more than entertaining crowds in weddings, hotels, casino's and restaurants either leading my band or performing a tribute to the Rat Pack and Michael Buble. I love spending time with my favourite people, my wife and children too of course. We love the outdoors, so you will regularly find us camping across the UK and France taking in the views!

"What comes next for Sheldon Phillips?"

Now that our great new brand has been released, my focus is purely on growth. We have a great locum and permanent offering for candidates and clients across the South East of England, which is growing very quickly. Full UK coverage is in the pipeline for the end of 2021 and with it a REALLY exciting project for us. Keep your eyes peeled for early 2022 when we will have more details!
