Jake Willcox

Founder & Director

I studied at the University of Gloucestershire in which I completed a Degree in Events Management. I went on to join a specialist Technical and Engineering recruitment company, progressing up to Senior Consultant.

I really wanted to build upon my knowledge, skills and successes, taking the next step to challenge myself where I could implement my own ideas and ethos - which is why Willcox Matthews was formed with two colleagues and close friends.

Out of the office: A keen footballer, playing Semi professionally and support Birmingham City. I try to go to the gym as much as possible... that’s if I’m able to get up in the mornings! I really enjoy spending time with my friends, family and partner, going on as many holidays as possible!

Matthew Reynolds

Founder & Director

Supported with a Degree in Sports Science at Worcester University, I went straight into recruitment spending 12 years with the same technical engineering recruitment company, rising to the level of Principal Consultant.

With years of knowledge and experience behind me, it is a great time to join like minded experienced consultants in forming Willcox Matthews - taking my career to the next level.

Out of the office: In my personal life I spend most of my spare time with my 2 young daughters which includes walks, national trust days, swimming, activity holidays and generally cleaning up after them! I also enjoy playing football, going to the gym, DIY work around the house, watching films, poker nights and sleeping.

Matthew Dutton

Founder & Director

After securing a degree in Politics from the University of Lincoln, I went on to work in two different sales roles. One selling advertising in the official Morgan Car Magazine and the other selling IT Software to Estate Agents. I finally found my calling in recruiting working for the same company for just under 4 years.

Willcox Matthews is the natural progression in my career. Working with two friends and former colleagues, we are building and maintaining a company that will provide a successful and reliable service to our clients.

Out of the office: In my spare time I enjoy various tv series, spending time with friends and family which may include a few cheeky beers on the weekend and exploring different destinations overseas.

Josh Bryan

Recruitment Consultant

From a very young age I have been golf mad, starting from the bottom with a handicap of 48 I progressed through the ranks from county level to playing in some of the biggest England Golf events. From there I became Professional playing on the Europro, but with set-backs I decided to look at other paths and found myself in recruitment and not looked back since.

I am a really keen learner and hopefully over the years I will be able to pass over my knowledge and experience to ambitious new peers that are wanting to understand the recruitment trade and along the way building the Willcox Matthews family.

Out of the office: I have a season ticket with Aston Villa and like my golf career, it has been a roller coaster! I’m always spending time with my family, friends and jumping on a plane as much as possible!
