Having graduated from Loughborough University with a very interesting, but ultimately not overly relevant Geography Degree (oxbow lakes?!), Matt spent 4 years working in the Government’s Faststream graduate programme, before making the move to recruitment in 2006. Matt has since recruited to a wide range of roles across both the public and non-profit sectors.

He joined TPP in 2013 and now heads up both the Leadership and Governance and Fundraising teams. He is very much involved in day-to-day recruitment and in recent years has led on successful searches to CEO, Board-level (Trustee, Chair and NED) and Director-level Fundraising positions.

Matt and his family live in sunny South Essex, and in his spare time Matt is both a Trustee of a local Community charity and an Assistant Coach for an aspirational U6 boys football team with eyes on a trip to Wembley (at some stage).

Why did you join TPP? 

Opportunity to work in an organisation deeply embedded in the N4P sector, and where organisational values are closely aligned with my own

Your greatest achievement? 

My children! 2 fantastic, kind-hearted kids with a brilliant sense humour and zest for life! I also once completed a panini football sticker album which wasn’t bad either.

Unusual fact? 

I’m a published poet…

Favourite film or book? 

Anchorman or Step Brothers

Tea or coffee? 

Coffee. And lots of it!
