Behind the Business: 3 friends making Willcox Matthews Recruitment a success
LAST summer three friends set up Willcox Matthews Recruitment to specialise in helping people find jobs in the engineering and manufacturing sector.
Jake Willcox, Matt Reynolds and Matthew Dutton launched the Ombersley-based business in August 2018 after amassing 20 years of experience in the industry between them.
Matt, 35, said: “I have lived in Worcester all my life and went into recruitment straight out of university. The other two guys came to the same company as me and we became friends there.
“I always say you fall into recruitment rather than decide to do it, but now I’ve been doing it this long I can’t imagine doing anything else.”
Matthew, 28, admits it was daunting in the early days, saying: “Setting up a business is definitely not something for the faint-hearted.
“There are so many aspects to running a business, you have to be able to take on lots more skills so as a trio we all take on different aspects of the business.
“Going to the bank and getting the money to set it up, it was a very daunting time and we were all nervous but looking back it has gone really well for us.”
