Passionate about recruitment “To be a successful recruiter you need hard work, perseverance, and the ability to listen to and fully understand all of the other key people in the recruitment process, whether that be the client, the candidate or a line manager.” “A recruitment consultancy can do more harm than good if they do not represent their candidates in the correct way, and we recognise that we are only as good as the talent that we represent.” “We take the time to understand the people behind the CV, to know their motivations and career aspirations and to learn about their strengths and weaknesses, so that we can make a cultural, as well as technical, match between client and candidate.”

Matt has more than 20 years’ recruitment experience. He is responsible for leading teams across Asia and Australasia and is focused on growing existing business and diversifying into new markets. Passionate about recruitment “The inexorable rise of the Asian economies in the last 20 years is the driving force in not only the region, but increasingly the global economy. As such Asia’s quest to secure its own energy future is fuelling investment and growth of energy infrastructure previously undreamed of. With enormous untapped reserves, Australia is increasingly seen as a part of the East Asian energy solution and inextricably linked both in its geographical proximity, and its trade and political ties.” "As such, the region represents an exciting place to live and work right now, with a wealth of mega-projects underway and new developments planned. The region is soon to boast the world’s first floating liquefied natural gas asset, and this theme of innovation and creative solutions is sure to attract even more of the world’s engineering talent. Securing this talent for our clients in order to bring many of these projects to fruition has and will continue to be our challenge."

Gavin joined the business in 2008 and after successfully running our Houston office he transferred back to the UK to head the UK, Europe Africa operation. Passionate about Recruitment “For me recruitment is about ensuring candidates apply for and accept an opportunity that matches their own personal motivations. Often money can play to big a part, but key motivators can include things like location, working hours, type of project or autonomy. Knowing you’ve taken the right job for the right reasons is crucial for long-term career development.”
