    Philip Pettigrew - Manager of Employment Services See Philip Pettigrew's linked in account

    Philip’s commitment stems from his volunteer engagement in 2009 with Employment ACTion in career planning and coaching.  An avid life-long learner, his career has spanned numerous industries and self employment in the applied arts.  His exposure to career counselling coupled with his diverse experience led him to supplement his Bachelor of Commerce Degree with a Post Graduate Diploma in Career and Work Counselling so he could contribute to the success of others transitioning in their careers.  He joined Employment ACTion in 2010 where he thrives in supporting the return to work strategies of individuals while balancing the hiring needs of employers. When not engaged in the workplace you may find him on the bike trails, soaking up the sun on the beach or simply watching movies with his roommate, Romeo the cat.
