Rhys is not like other recruiters you come across. He makes you feel like a human and not just a ‘number’ or a ‘KPI’. With other recruiters, I felt like I was just another social worker to place in a role that was going to be an “easy sell” and not too much work to convince the local authority who was hiring.

"What is your role at Sheldon Phillips?"
Well other than making the odd round of coffees, I recruit locum staff for Children and Adults services for Local Authorities all over the South East of England. I have big plans for this division that fit into the company's plans for future growth. I have worked in a few recruitment sectors and I must say that after just over 12 months with the business, I absolutely love it. I get to speak to so many different types of people in this role, who are all so passionate about Social Work. It really does make my job so much easier when I'm working with someone that really cares about the job they do.
"Work aside, what do you like to do for fun?"
I used to work for gymnastics companies and have done quite a bit of stunt work. Free running is also a huge passion of mine, so I like to keep pretty active.
I have been quite picky with my search and Rhys was able to find me something that I wanted. Other recruiters in my experience would try to expand the search but Rhys and the staff at Sheldon Phillips were respectful of what I wanted and were patient and understanding. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a new role!
My consultant is Rhys and I have found all the staff at Sheldon Phillips to be really helpful at all times. They are personable and interested in getting me the right role and ensuring I continue to be happy in that role. If you want an agency that feels a bit like a family, or at the very least a group of really solid and nice people who are invested in your wellbeing and happiness, choose Sheldon Phillips.
