Hi, I’m Phil. I joined LMA in March 2017 and I head up the interim Finance & Accounting desk, focussing on a mixture of Financial Services and Commerce & Industry.
My story is quite a different one to most – originally a musician by trade, I was fortunate enough to hold the second trombone seat with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, touring and travelling the world playing with musicians such as Elton John, Alexandra Burke, Jessie J and recording music for various games and backing tracks. It was an incredible lifestyle but far too sporadic, so decided I wanted to have something with a bit more of a regime, hence joining the wonderful world of recruitment. Little did I know back then that recruitment is also sporadic, especially on the interim market in London!
Matching top candidates with top clients is what we do here. We work very closely as a team to provide the best available market intelligence and work closely from a more consultative approach rather than just ‘placing candidates.’ Feel free to get in touch if you want to discuss the finance markets or even if you want to talk about music – always open for a conversation!
