Matt is the founder of Graham James Limited and commenced his busines journey in 2014 through a love of helping other’s find their dream job.
Prior to starting Graham James, Matt worked in the Automotive Industry for most of his working career, mainly in Finance roles. Before the company was formed, Matt was a Financial Controller at a Top 10 UK based Dealer Group and Head of Finance for an Automotive Engineering company.
Matt chose to name the company after his late father as he was Matt's biggest inspiration and in his words, "He never let me down so this forms part of the company values as I never want to let any client, candidate or member of staff down. Great customer service is very important to me and I am proud of the great testimonials we receive from both clients and candidates".
Matt knows that a business is only as good as its staff. Good staff are hard to find but very easy to lose if they aren’t looked after correctly... Matt never really felt that the Agencies he used in previous jobs understood the needs of the business and the type of candidates he wanted to see. This was Matt's 'light-bult moment' that led him to start up his own recruitment agency, whereby he now endevours to build strong partnership relationships with clients and candidates in order to find top talent.
Graham James is an evergrowing business and we are pleased to be able to deliver a great recruitment service to a range of clients and candidates in multiple industries!
