  • ​I have recently had the pleasure to work with Matt as a candidate for a Site Manager position in New South Wales. Matt is a very dynamic recruiter who is taking HR into a higher level of performance. He is always available, upfront, transparent and provides continuous feedback at any stage of the process. Furthermore, Matt is very proactive and leads the interaction between the company and the candidate, always looking for a win-win scenarios on both sides. His experience and skills on Engineering and Manufacturing are supporting the robustness of the process. Matt understands what Manufacturing Companies are looking for. I would recommend Matt to any companies and candidates who would like to experience a new, dynamic and fresh HR recruitment style where objectives are delivered outstandingly for all the involved parties.
