Candidates

I would highly recommend Matthew Hanley at Matching Talent with opportunity. I knew I had the qualifications and skillset for the job I desired but couldn’t find a workplace that was the right match. Matt highlighted the aims the business had and what expectations they would want from the ideal candidate, which made the initial part of the recruitment much easier and it sped the whole process up. Myself and Matt communicated loads via phone calls and text, and we came up with a very direct way for me to get the desired job. Everything from the finest detail was done through Matt which made my life simple and easy which is very helpful when your stressing about looking for a new job. Thank you again Matt for providing me with a stress free and efficient service. Feeling grateful!!

'Most recruitment firms don't understand the print/signage industry which can be frustrating so it was refreshing to deal with Matt at M-Two who understood the experience I have and knew I was a good match for the vacancy I had applied for. Matt is very friendly, understanding and patient. He kept me upto date throughout the process and helped me get the job I really wanted. I highly recommend print/signage companies use M-Two as they will find the right fit for your business. Thank you once again Matt.'

I would highly recommend Matthew Hanley at Matching Talent With Opportunity. I know what I wanted but didn't know where that was, Matt listened and provided me with 3 great options. I'm delighted to be starting my new position this side of Christmas! After the initial conversation, we agreed on a plan of attack which was executed perfectly. During the recruitment process, I was kept informed throughout and replied to promptly, ensuring a smooth transition into my new role. Thank you Matt for providing a professional and efficient service!

Account Manager

I recently worked with Matt and what an absolute pleasure! He was very professional from the start. His attentional to detail and his enthusiasm really showed. He called and discussed the role I was applying for to make sure it was the correct role for me. He contacted me on the day of the interview and offered help and assistance and he even called after the see how it went! I’m pleased to say I was offered the job and couldn’t have done it without him. I would highly recommend Matt!

Darren
Print Account Manager

If it was not for the fact that they've done a faultless job and that I love my current job, I'd happily be approached by Matt and MTWO again and again. I found Matt's behavior exemplary and his conduct put me at ease, he was friendly, professional, and genuine. I got this job because of this service, they took the time to interview me, make sure I was a match for the role but more importantly they go to know me. This process ensured that my new role fits me perfectly. 100% would recommend!

Marc

Just wanted to leave a review for Matt, the journey to find me a new job was absolutely brilliant! From the first phone-call with him until the last, when I phoned Matt and explained my situation he was great and managed to find me 5 opportunities in a matter of days. I could see that he had really listened to what I was looking for and has put me in a company that ticked all the boxes and more! I wouldn’t recommend anyone else. Also helps that he’s a top guy! Thanks Matt!!

Dec
Business Development Manager

I recently had the pleasure of working with Matt and his company MTWO. Our initial conversation highlighted his professionalism and understanding of my situation and his attention to detail and communication throughout the process was both assuring and refreshing. I would highly recommend Matt and to have someone listen and understand the employment market at the moment is what sets him apart from other recruitment companies I have dealt with previously.

Danny
Head of Client Service

'I recently had the privilege of using M-Two's services as a candidate. I was extremely impressed by Matt's attention to detail and high quality service. I could tell Matt had actually taken the the time to read, digest and understand my CV and find a specific role that plays to my strengths. Having used many recruitment agencies in the past, Matt's attention to both employer and employees requirements is both unique and rare to find in this industry. I would have no hesitation in using M-Two's services again and I highly recommend to both employer and employees alike. Excellent personalised service!'

Michael
Marketing Manager

This has been my first experience of working with Matt and MTWO, and I couldn’t be more impressed. Right from the start I found Matt to be refreshingly professional with great communication and also a very likeable person, quickly and easily able to build a rapport. He skilfully understands the client’s needs, and where my experience aligned with the position available. instantly getting the ball rolling with regular communication throughout and always being available on the end of the phone. So whether you’re a Client or Candidate, the perfect fit does exist…. and Matt will find it. Cheers Matt!

Tim
Head of Service Contracts

In the past I have had some really bad experiences with recruiters, so was reluctant to speak with another one. However, after applying for a role I had seen, which had a totally different vibe from the run-of-the-mill adverts out there, within a couple of hours Matt from MTWO rang me for a quick chat. No pressure from him, he really spent time getting to know me, my background and my aspirations, not just my cv. Two days later I was invited for an interview, Matt sent all the info with some tips and a call ahead of the meeting which I thought really helped as I'd not had an interview for years. Matt checked in to see how it all went and said once he had any news he would give me honest feedback whether it be good or bad. 2 hrs later Matt called me to say I had been successful. I can’t thank him enough, everything he said about the company was spot on, no false info just everything I needed plus more. I highly recommend anyone looking for a new role get in touch with Matt. Once again thanks Matt, really looking forward to the next chapter in my career.

‘Matt was fantastic from start to finish… There’s nothing more he could have done. He was personable, got to know me very quickly and put an opportunity in front of me that ticked every single box! The role played to my experience, it was in a new sector for so something to get my teeth into and 2 miles away from my house. I was really impressed with how he really pulled out the stops to get me this job, he knew the client really well, understood exactly what they were after, we had a chat before and after every meeting with them giving me open feedback… In the middle of the process (which was 10 days from start to finish) Matt was even on holiday and he stayed in contact at all times which I really appreciated… Absolutely outstanding.

Gary
Electrical Engineer

Matt, I just wanted to say a massive thank you for your patience and understanding with the process of recruiting me for my new role. I truly feel that I’ve been matched with a role I will enjoy longterm, and a company thats’ values align with my own. I have always been really resistant to engage with recruiters but your approach was different, it was personable, creative and the process was enjoyable. I’m so grateful now for your help and will recommend you and your services to people in the future!

Abi
Business Manager

I NOTICED A ROLE THAT STOOD OUT FROM THE CROWD. THE ADVERT WAS TOTALLY DIFFERENT, IT SPOKE TO ME RATHER THAN A LIST OF REQUIREMENTS. THIS WAS A GRADUATE ROLE AND SPOKE TO ME ABOUT ATTITUDE, BEHAVIOURS AND A CULTURE FIT THAT JUST TICKED ALL MY BOXES. NOT KNOWING THE RECRUITMENT PROCESS, I SENT MY DETAILS IN HALF EXPECTING TO NOT HEAR BACK. I COULDN'T HAVE BEEN MORE WRONG. MATT CALLED ME, LEFT A MESSAGE, FOLLOWED UP WITH AN EMAIL AND WAS ON THE BALL. FROM THE FIRST TIME WE SPOKE, WE INSTANTLY BUILT A RAPPORT AND MATT MADE ME FEEL AT EASE. THE RECRUITMENT PROCESS WAS SLICK, HE TOLD ME WHO THE CLIENT WAS OFF THE BAT SO I COULD RESEARCH MYSELF. WE CONDUCTED A VIDEO INTERVIEW THAT HUMANISED THE RECRUITMENT PROCESS, 2 MEETINGS AND AN OFFER (ABOVE WHAT I INDICATED WHAT I ASKED FOR) FROM MY NEW EMPLOYER ALL WITHIN 10 DAYS. MATT WAS ALWAYS ON HAND. SOMETIMES SPEAKING AT 9:30 IN THE EVENING FROM START TO FINISH. ALTHOUGH IT WAS A NEW CLIENT FOR HIM, HE KNEW THEM VERY WELL., HE GOT TO KNOW ME, MY EXPERIENCE AND AMBITIONS AND CONNECTED US SEAMLESSLY. THANKS FOR EVERYTHING MATT.

James
Graduate Business Manager

A WEEK AGO MY PHONE RANG AND A MANCHESTER NUMBER CAME UP, I DIDN'T ANSWER AND WAITED FOR THE RECORDED MESSAGE, IT WAS FROM MATT, I CALLED HIM BACK, HAD A GOOD CHAT. PROFESSIONAL YET PERSONABLE AND IMMEDIATELY STARTED TO BUILD A GREAT RAPPORT. UNFORTUNATELY, I'D BEEN A VICTIM OF REDUNDANCY FROM THE PANDEMIC. BEFORE THAT THOUGH, A VERY STRONG CV WITH GOOD STABILITY AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT MATT HAD SEEN. WITHIN TWO DAYS I HAD AN INTERVIEW WITH A FANTASTIC COMPANY LOCAL TO ME AND WITHIN FIVE DAYS I HAD CONFIRMATION OF A JOB OFFER. WHAT A SLICK, ENJOYABLE PROCESS. I OWE ALL THIS TO MATT WHO TOOK THE TIME TO LOOK OVER MY CV AND PUT ME IN TOUCH WITH MY NEW COMPANY. THANKS, MATT, NEVER FORGET WHAT YOU DID FOR ME.

Matt and I connected after seeing a role that he was recruiting for. To be honest, the role was pretty much made for me and my experience. From the get-go, Matt was attentive, he did what he said he was going to do and kept me informed all the way through what has been a tricky process. Tricky purely because halfway through, my now employer had been acquired. Despite this, communication and honesty were at the forefront of everything. From the company, myself and of course Matt as the facilitator. To everyone's delight, success was achieved. I got the job, they got their guy and Matt got the placement. Matt's usp really is listening and guiding you continually through the emotional rollercoaster of moving jobs. I felt assured from start to finish and the whole thing was pain-free. Thank you for your support matt, we will continue to stay in touch for sure.

William
Product Manager

Not only is Matt the best recruiter, he's a top lad too. We started talking 8 months ago, he lined me up with several interviews (very quickly) that all matched what I was after. Not only was I moving jobs after 16 years, I was relocating too. I was moving to a new area and Matt was incredibly helpful in everything, he even introduced me to his barber 😂 Moving jobs and location, there was a hiccup that meant I couldn't move and had to let the process go to the wayside. Matt, wasn't angry, he understood. We kept talking and miraculously, the same opportunity with the same business (15 mins from my new home) came back available and I can happily say that it's the best move I've ever made. Just goes to show, don't burn your bridges and things happen when they are supposed to happen. Again, Matt is so welcoming, approachable and knowledgeable about the printing industry. I certainly wouldn't be in this position without his guidance, introduction and friendship. If you're even remotely considering a new opportunity, you need to be speaking to Matt. Not only will he sort you out, but the Brownies he sends out are next level. Cheers Matt.

Chris
Senior Account Manager

I met Matt through a mutual print connection. I'd been toying with the idea about moving jobs during the pandemic but wasn't sure who to trust within the print industry. But any doubts I had about the print recruitment process were short lived as Matt couldn't have been more engaging and supportive, he has been amazing throughout the whole recruitment process. Matt managed to line up several interviews up for me at employers I was keen to work for and the offers came in quickly after that. To describe Matt in 3 words I'd say professional, honest, supportive. He doesn't waste time with nonsense baloney. If you seriously want to move jobs then undoubtedly you have to speak with Matt right now! Thank you Matt you've been the best supporter and friend who's helped find the right role at the right time for me.

Gareth
Senior Business Development Manager

Matt is an absolute gem. In a recruitment world that is so competitive and full of failed promises, Matt is the total opposite. So truthful, open and honest. We spoke in a morning after he coming across my CV, by the afternoon he'd had me 3 interviews booked. Those 3 meetings resulted in 3 offers and I am delighted with my choice. Thanks Matt so much for your hard work, support and introductions.

Teresa
Sales Manager

My experience with Matt has been second to none! Moving jobs was a huge thing for me after so many years in my last position. I was very particular about what and where I needed to go. Matt took the time to understand me, my ambitions but also my experience. Not expecting him to have had something up his sleeve immediately, he introduced me to my now employer and I couldn't be more happy. The process, the communication and the management from start to finish has been exemplary. I'd highly recommend working with Matt. I know I'm excited to now be a client and continuing our relationship.

Stevie
Operations Director

"Matt and I spoke on a Monday, we submitted my CV to a live role he had, on the Wednesday I was interviewing and by the Friday I had resigned having accepted an incredible offer within a great business in the industry. There was speed, no bull shit, and we had a laugh going through the process. I'd highly recommend Matt at MTWO. Cheers Matt!

Grant
Large Format Printer

"Thank you to Matt and the team at MTWO. Very organised and great communication throughout, really thankful for everything that you have sorted for me. Made the whole transition very smooth!"

Jack
Account Manager

Matt was a great help during my job search and found me a great position in a highly respected company. I can safely say I wouldn’t have got the role without him; as he proactively chased the company to secure a job offer. In a tricky week of decision making, he also gave great advice and regular support. I would definitely recommend M-Two when looking for a job!

Chris
Senior Designer

Matt is one of the best recruiters I have ever worked with. He was incredibly professional and supportive throughout the entire process. He is genuinely invested in your best interests. I found him extremely approachable and available for questions whenever I needed. I have even recommended him to a friend. Don't get a big head now! No genuinely though thanks so much.

Amy
Senior Designer

Matt @ MTWO is always available. He was totally on top of the situation, making sure I was too. This was my first interview in a long time. He helped me massively. It also helped that he'd partnered with the client for nearly 10 years. He was great, to the point and I'd have no hesitation in recommending him to anybody looking for a new opportunity. Cheers Matt!

Davie

Matt introduced himself to me out of the blue via LinkedIn with a live prospect. He was professional and easy to work with while arranging an interview. I squarely place his efficiency at the heart of arranging the interview for me so quickly. From initial contact to the date of the interview was barely a week and I was offered the job within days of the interview. Thanks to Matt, I am now working at the company he arranged the interview for and I am so very grateful he contacted me, as it is suiting me very well. Thanks again Matt.

Fraser
Account Manager

Brilliant service, always helpful and understood my requirements. Matt got me the perfect position, I'd highly suggest getting in touch if you are looking for a new role in Print or Packaging.

Sean
Estimator - Print

From the moment I sent my cv off to Matt, he has been amazing. An interesting opportunity came up that he felt matched my skill sets and within a few days he had arranged an interview which he helped prep me for, I went and was offered the job the same day. I cannot speak highly enough of Matt, a real top bloke who is there for you every step of the way throughout the whole process from start to finish and beyond! If you want a new job Matt's your man.

Trudy
Account Manager

I wasn't even looking for a job but Matt got in touch with something I couldn't turn down. Matt has been great from start to finish, everything has been smooth and on time, and the result is the best for all of us, would definitely recommend.

John
Transport Manager

Although Matt didn't actually secure me a role (He did get me an offer though) I thought he was brilliant. Matt offers a great service, always on hand to answer any questions and provided an update as soon as he had one. Cheers Matt!

James
Large Format Printer

Amazing service from start to finish!! I got an initial call less than a week ago and I've been offered a permanent role today. Very easy to deal with and Matt takes you through every step of the recruitment process, step by step and leaves you fully up to date with the progress. I highly recommend and have already passed his details onto a few others in the industry.

Mark
Project Manager

Really helped me not only get me an interview but help me transition from one place to another, Matt Hanley was incredibly helpful and I can’t thank him enough for the assistance he gave me, I Would highly recommend.

Liam
Despatch Operator

The first time I've dealt with Matt and it's been a pleasure from start to finish. He found out everything he needed to know from me and instantly got the ball rolling. Within just a couple of weeks he lined up some interviews and last week I was made an offer that I just couldn't turn down. I'd recommend Matt to anybody who needs a helping hand. Professional, great communication and a very likeable person.

Stuart
Sales Manager

5 STARS! Matt contacted me recently when I was looking for a new opportunity. From the start he was extremely proactive with an impressive portfolio of clients. After our initial conversations Matt contacted businesses that were a good fit for what I was looking for and within two days had set up interviews which led to second interviews and subsequently job offers. Two weeks from initial interview and I start my new role on Monday. Throughout the whole process Matt has been the ultimate professional, always responsive and on the end of the phone. I can’t recommend Matt highly enough. He has an excellent reputation in our industry and there’s no doubt why.

Jennie
Sales Manager

Matt is great! He's very open and honest, he's a complete breath of fresh air within the Print Recruitment industry. I for one am so glad he has set up MTWO Search. He is definitely a go to and I will (and have) used as job seeker and employer. Keep fighting the good fight.

Carl
Account Manager

It has been an absolute pleasure working with Matt Hanley. He was so supportive, motivating and highly professional during our collaboration. I have gained very valuable information and had such a positive experience throughout the process. I would highly recommend Matt Hanley if you’re looking for a new job opportunity!

Franca
Business Development Manager

Matt is without doubt the best recruitment consultant I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with, I found him professional, personable, on point and he knows what he’s talking about. Highly recommended doesn’t cover it.

Dan
Business Development Manager

Quite simply, Matt is one of the best recruiters I’ve ever dealt with. Whilst his professionalism and work ethic are fantastic he’s also easy to talk to. We’ve quickly built up a great rapport whilst I know I can trust his judgement and value his feedback.

Sarah
Business Development Manager

Matt has been a great help not only finding a role but also making sure it continues to meet all expectations after starting and beyond the commission being paid. A true professional who takes the time to get to know his candidates and making sure they will be the right fit for the employer as well.

Chris
Head of Procurement

I highly recommend Matt, Matt found me on LinkedIn when I thought i was getting nowhere with being on LinkedIn, he approached me with a role exactly what Ive been after and was with me every step of the way! He’s got me into the best company with amazing colleagues! I’m honestly over the moon, best recruiter I’ve dealt with, never left me hanging thinking what the outcome was, he’s very reassuring and positive and just overall a great guy! Thank you for being you Matt! Your a legend 🙌🏽

Clients

There are a lot of recruiters out there that give the industry a bad rep, delivering a poor service with no care and attention not understanding the clients needs. They seem to just forward on CV’s. Because of this I feel it’s important to shout out a good one Matt Hanley who has recently started his own business because he is absolutely the complete opposite! Matt is a pleasure to work with, he really understands the clients needs, head hunts and pre interviews all the candidates before putting them forward, confident that they are a good fit and can deliver on the role. So if you’re looking for team members in the signage and printing industry, give Matt a shout. Matt Hanley #Kudos Is there anything you can't do?!

Nick
Managing Director

Working with M-TWO has been an absolute pleasure. I was quite sceptical about using a recruiter for our business… that was until Matt came along. Matt made the whole process stress free and easy, sourcing candidates, arranging interviews and sharing advise and tips along the way. Going forward we’ll continue to use M-TWO’s services to source the best talent for our growing business. Thank you Matt!

Jake
Managing Director

“I’ve worked with Matt over the last 5 years and always feel that he goes the extra mile in finding not only the right person for the position but more importantly the right person for the company“

Suzanne
Managing Director

“Matt has done two very successful placements for me over the last few months. In both cases he has been quick, efficient and refreshingly professional.”

Stephen
Managing Director

I had never worked with a recruiter before, so I didn’t know what to expect. After an initial discussion with Matt, he wrote my job advert and really understood what I was looking for, Matt kept me updated on everything he was doing, who he was talking too and even spent time pre interviewing the candidates for me. He really did take the stress out of finding someone new for our team, it’s been worth every penny.

Suzi
Managing Director

Explained the business requirements to Matt, which he took on-board fully. Relevant candidates lined up almost immediately and the position was filled with ease. Professional and supportive service from M-TWO which I would be happy to recommend.

Liam
Operations Manager

I have been working with Matt on a number of placements recently and already have been seeing the success of his work. Matt understands the profile of candidates we require, has acted quickly and effectively after the role specification and our first recommendation from Matt starts next month. Hopefully the start of a long term partnership.

Matt
Group Commercial Director

Matthew recently sourced a Project Manager for me. I found his service to be highly professional. He understood the brief and presented candidates that were wholly suited to the vacancy and his customer service skills were top rate. I wouldn't have any hesitation in recommending him.

Peter
Commercial Director

Having consulted with him for many years I have found Matt to be one of the most conscientious and diligent in his field. His research into my market, my business and my company's specific capabilities and expertise meant that his candidate selection was always accurate and relevant. By taking the time to visit me he built a strong understanding of the skills, characteristics and personality that a candidate would need to succeed in my business which is surprisingly rare in recruitment. He would be a strong asset to any business wanting to recruit quality candidates.

Neil
Sales Director

Matt, has an outstanding eye for finding the right candidates for his clients, he's thorough and really takes on board the needs of this client to source not only a good fit but a candidate with the right know how. Having worked with Matt and seen first hand the professional approach and detail he goes into I would highly recommend using matt's expertise to help the growth of your business.

Jonathan
Managing Director

Matt was flawless and tenacious when finding me a new Account Director , the best accolade I can give him about understanding my brief was , he put 4 candidates in-front of me and I ended up recruiting all 4 into me UK team ! Great performance on understanding our needs and there was absolutely no downtime with Matt , understood and produced ! And great banter throughout the whole process ! Well done

John
COO

I recently asked Matt to help me with some very specific recruitment requirements I had. The skill set needed was related certain MIS software and so felt the chances of Matt finding a suitable candidate with the necessary experience and attributes also living within a commutable distance were slim. Pleased to say he fulfilled the brief and found somebody that ticked every box. A job well done and an experience that I am please to say gives recruiters a good name... I would recommend using Matt for your recruitment needs in future

Alistair
Managing Director

Matt has filled a couple of roles for me. One of them which I thought would be hard to fill and would take at least a few months to find the right match. Matt found the perfect candidate within a week. I have worked with many recruiters in the past. I can safely say I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Matt for your recruiting needs in the print sector.

Matt
HR Director

Matt and the team at MTWO listen and deliver. I’m happy to recommend their services.

Donna
Group HR Director

Great due diligence and attention to detail, not just for the candidate but the company's own ethos and culture. We will certainly be working with Matt in the future.
