Matthew Hartwell



Matt has worked in recruitment for 12 years and joined Plus One in April 2021. He recruits for the more senior roles in our Operations division, with his colleague Taryn looking after the more junior roles. Matt is able to build rapport with all candidates and clients, and considers his strongest skill his ability to look past a CV and really delve into why a candidate would be good for a role. He enjoys searching for the perfect candidate, and when they accept an offer from the client, securing their new position.

After a four year break from recruitment, Matt placed a candidate in his first month at Plus One, despite not having extensive experience in permanent recruitment at the time. In his previous recruitment role, Matt grew the company’s temporary candidate division from 10 temporary workers a day, to an impressive 100 workers a day.

Matt plays football at the weekends, and has a passion for classis VW’s. He owns a 1968 VW Beetle, and when he was five years old he wanted to be a racing car driver – a dream he still hope to achieve one day!
