Phil assisted Fujifilm in a recent placement of a National Marketing Manager. We hadn't been able to find the right candidate through independent channels, so gave Phil the opportunity to assist us, due to his specialist Marketing industry experience. Phil used his networks to source a great candidate, who fit our criteria perfectly and has now worked with Fujifilm for 7 months.

In assisting with the placement, Phil was easy to work with, prompt in communication (despite being overseas for part of the time), and demonstrated his understanding of our needs.

Thanks for your help Phil!
