Spinnaker’s reputation as the market leader in the global maritime recruitment sector is well deserved. I have known Phil professionally since the 1990’s and I have had the benefit of experiencing his services as both a candidate and as an employer. Phil’s knowledge of the maritime world is encyclopaedic and he is quick to grasp the relevant issues irrespective of whether they have been fully articulated. His ethical approach, provision of timely information and unfailing good humour makes working with him, on either side of the fence, a pleasure.
