Who Am I?

I am a co-founder and current director of a UK-based IT recruitment company, and I have over 20 years’ experience in the industry. My current role is a combination of senior executive recruitment, business development, and client consultancy. I have extensive experience delivering effective and creative recruitment solutions to startups and growing SMEs.

I help businesses that have issues with attraction, recruitment and retention of staff at management level and above. I advise on recruitment processes, employee engagement and retention, and the use of psychometric and behavioural assessments.

I help senior executives to navigate the executive job market in order to define, find and secure the position they really want. I show them how to move from a state of reactive chaos to one of proactive control of their executive job search.

I am a Chartered Accountant (Deloitte) and a qualified Thomas International (psychometrics) and Motivational Maps Practitioner.

Matt can help with


A business's most valuable asset? Its people. Most companies have a reactive and one-dimensional approach to recruitment, which leads to poor results. I can help you devise an effective recruitment strategy that will help your business grow.


Recruitment is just the beginning. Competition for the best people is intense so the most successful companies have a retention strategy in place. If you're losing staff to the competition, I can advise on ways to keep them. Understanding motivation is at the heart of this.

Career coaching

Having worked in recruitment for 20 years, I know what hiring managers, MDs, and recruiters look for, and the pitfalls to avoid. I can help you identify what you want to do next, and how to get there.
