Matt Stride

Recruitment Consultant (Contracts)Specialising in Transport & Future Mobility, Automotive, Nuclear, Energy, Manufacturing & Materials

About Matt: I have worked in recruitment for two years now, starting in the industrial and driving sector before joining the team at Jonathan Lee Recruitment in August 2021. Whilst being in the industry I have completed my recruitment qualification.

I always wanted to enter into the recruitment sector when in previous employment, and I have not regretted the leap for a second! It is a really enjoyable sector as it allows you to interact with people of all backgrounds and gives you an opportunity to be a part of people's careers and futures.

Away from work: I am a huge sports fan and a keen player (in my slimmer days…!) and have played rugby and football at various grounds across the UK including Harlequins ground, The Stoop.

Other passions include social time with family and friends and a good karaoke session.

Skilled in recruiting for the following positions / sectors:

Field Service -  Welders, Fabricators, CNC Operators, Press Setters, Sheet Metal Workers, Sub Contract Engineers

Commercial – General Engineering, Nuclear, Oil & Gas, Automotive, Construction, Manufacturing
