    "Matt is a great recruiter. When I was looking for work, he really helped me understand the current opportunities, kept me informed through the process and even though it took months to find the right role for me, I felt Matt was always looking out for me. Now that I'm in my new role (thanks to Matt) and am looking to expand my team, Matt has already demonstrated that same honesty and enthusiasm for finding the right people. Whether you're looking for a new role yourself or looking to find great people to join your team, then I'd definitely recommend having a chat with Matt." - Head of Software Engineering – High Growth Software House

     

    "I've worked with Matt on two occasions and both times I was amazed at the speed and tenacity with which he operates. He's like a greyhound chasing that rabbit down. First time I worked with him, I think we'd talked on the Thursday/Friday, and Monday I was put to work. Really impressive, especially given the bureaucracy’s that rule over the modern corporate world. I look forward to working with him again, and him making my head spin." - Contract Lead Engineer – Multiple Organisations

     

    "At this stage of my more than three decades of professional life, I often struggle to make job agents understand the value I can bring to an organisation. Not so with Matt, who is one of those rare recruiters who can see the big picture. He does not just match keywords in a job spec and a CV: he also tries to understand the intangibles of a candidate, he evaluates the culture fit and the team dynamics. He actively works to facilitate the process, improve communication, and prevent misunderstandings. With him there is no place for that classic game of Chinese whispers that many selection processes turn into, where the recruiter becomes the biggest obstacle for a clear exchange between the candidate and the hiring organisation. I have no hesitation to recommend him." - Contract Principal UI Engineer – Cloud Solutions SME
