Phil left sixth-form in July 2017 after studying Chemistry, Psychology and Business Studies at A-Level. After quickly discovering the Chemical Engineering route wasn't for him he taught himself HTML and CSS and gained a Web Design Specialist Diploma.
Phil joined the Invotra team in Newcastle in November 2017 as a Project Management Apprentice, and when he completes his apprenticeship hopes to keep developing his knowledge and skills by completing a degree with the degree apprenticeship schemes Invotra offer.
Phil competed nationally in shot putt and is a school record holder for hammer throw. He is also an ex-rugby player but unfortunately had to retire due to too many injuries.
