Phil helps recruitment service to step up

A recruitment expert is helping to bridge the gap between small businesses and those looking for work in Lancashire.

Phil Collier, who has specialised in HR and recruitment for more than 30 years, will be overseeing operations and re-developing structure at Barrow-based PHX Jobmatch on a consultancy basis.

PHX Jobmatch, the recruitment arm of training company PHX Training, aims to plug the gap between employment opportunities and those seeking work by matching skilled workers with relevant roles.

Phil is chair of the Furness branch of the Federation of Small Businesses and the Barrow Business Improvement District (BID) steering group. He has experience of recruitment at all levels and was managing director of Turnstone HR before exiting the business to set up consultancy, Phil Collier Associates.

Phil said: “I became involved with PHX because it’s a very dynamic organisation with similar business ethics to my own. We believe in a client-friendly and ethical approach to recruitment, treating both the client and the applicant with equal respect, something which is often missing across the sector.

“Ultimately, I want to position PHX Jobmatch as the experts for businesses wanting to recruit by offering a service which removes the burden and is quick, easy and affordable.”

Shirley Williams, development director at PHX added: “Phil has a well-rounded portfolio of experience in recruitment, from factory floor to board level, as well as many years working in the corporate sector. It means he can see both sides of the coin and his experience and entrepreneurial approach is ideal to take PHX Jobmatch to the next level.” 

PHX Jobmatch provides options for a diverse range of people and companies, from apprenticeships through to senior roles, with many roles supported by training at the appropriate level.

A specialist team is also on hand for those looking for apprenticeships, traineeships or work experience to help maximise effective support and job opportunities.
