Meet the team: Matthew Telling

NAME: Matthew Telling

JOB TITLE: Operations Manager

Something interesting about me?

This is a tricky one, as I live a pretty ordinary life.

I’m originally from South Wales, and have lived and worked in the Tees Valley since moving up 16 years ago.

Married, two young kids, so they keep me busy when I’m not working, as well as watching and playing sports including cricket, football and running.

Not at the moment though as I fractured an ankle and damaged ligaments about six weeks ago playing cricket, so it’s all about recovery at the moment.

See…pretty dull!

Why do I like recruitment?

Recruitment can be challenging/invigorating/frustrating/exhilarating all in the space of a day!

The process of developing relationships with new and existing clients across different industry sectors, and supporting them to achieve their recruitment goals, makes it all the more rewarding though.

I get to meet such a wide variety of people, many of whom become real friends and provide great support.

It’s extremely satisfying to make a difference to peoples’ lives, from finding a client a great candidate to providing a great new career opportunity that offers real career advancement or a greater financial reward.

Why am I excited about joining the team at Westray?

I was drawn by the ambition that Maureen Wright has to really push Westray forward.

I’m delighted to have joined the senior leadership team and I’m confident that I can add value and experience to what’s already an excellent group of people.

I’ve initially been tasked with leading the development of the Teesside office, based in Stockton, which is already a successful operation.

The Teesside team have enormous potential, and the ongoing regional development across the Tees Valley made joining Westray a straightforward decision to make.

Westray are embarking on an exciting period of growth, across the UK, and I’m really positive about what the future holds for us.
