Tunde was extremely involved in the process and prepped me well for the interview, honestly no criticisms to give.
“Only recruitment company i will ever recommend”
Next Phase is the only recruitment company I will ever recommend with confidence. Steve is the most wonderful and authentic person with a friendly, approachable personality, and he has helped me more than words can express. Thank you again.
“"Supportive and professional"”
I would highly recommend Next Phase. Having been approached by Next Phase for a job position, they were very supportive and professional with my application. Next Phase was approachable with any queries i had throughout the interview process and I'm very happy with the quality of service shown throughout.
“"Going well so far!"”
It has been a busy week with several meetings in order to put things into prospective and get organised; my aim and my intentions are to offer the company the best of my experience and assist the team with their ambitious plans. I have been impressed with their work and I know I will enjoy my term here. I am planning to work hard and offer consultancy of the highest standard to leave good impressions and do credit to Steve and the Next Phase team for trusting and representing me here.
“"Network access & unique understanding"”
Next Phase were instrumental in our early fundraising efforts. Steve was able to unlock the doors of many investors with a specific interest in early stage gene therapy biotechs that would have otherwise been cold and unknown to us. In parallel, he has attracted our industry leading “raise team”, consisting of some of the most reputable advanced therapy executives with experience within the ATMP space. Thanks to Steve's network access and unique understanding of this space, we were able to significantly accelerate the development of our business to help improve the quality of life for those affected by rare diseases.
