Why use Sheldon Phillips to find your next role?

It's simple really - we aren't pushy or too needy.....we know that what you want is to be listened to! You want an agency that will pro-actively look for what you want to do, rather than us focussing on the roles that will benefit us financially.

That's why we have been so successful, because this is YOUR job search, not ours.
