Serving Up: Matt Klee

An Appetiser

Hi, I’m Matt and I specialise in recruiting permanent software developers. I focus mainly on the .Net sector but recruit a range of front end, back end and full stack specialists as well as testers, leaders and managers and a number of development languages.

I’ve been with TRC since December 2017. I first started in recruitment in 2013, originally back in the UK before realising the grass is greener (and the weather is better!) over this side of the world.

I recruit specialists in .Net into the development space and have experience across various industries including Finance, Defence, FMCG and IT among others.

I love getting to know the candidates and clients I work with and building partnerships to make the recruitment process as enjoyable and comfortable as possible.

My Secret Sauce

I have 8 years’ experience in recruitment across the UK and Aus. I’ve worked as an account manager for an RPO (essentially in-house recruitment) so know what it’s like to be on the other end of the phone, and how much value a good recruiter relationship can bring.
I'm Delivery-driven – in my first recruitment role we could have penalties incurred if we didn’t send CVs within 48 hours and place the role within 2 weeks, so delivering the right people quickly has been drilled into me.
I have 3 years’ specialist knowledge in Sydney IT market.
I know how to really drill down into exactly what a client/candidate needs, rather than what they think they want.
I'm very attentive with strong attention to detail, and able to be collaborative with my clients and share my own ideas and thoughts on what they could be doing different rather than just following instructions.

What my customers
say about me

"Matt is intelligent. He sees clearly what employer wants, and if a candidate has it or not. This is not easy, since he has to find it in hundreds of pages of CVs from many candidates. He has very good manner. It was a difficult process, and Matt called me regularly to keep me updated and engaged. The best agent I have ever dealt with."

"Matt knows the candidates very well and there is almost 50% of "hit rate": we end up hiring half of the candidates Matt sent to us. This is amazing. Matt is methodical.Very reliable. His approach to both the employer and the candidates are excellent. Very happy"

"Matt has been great to work with, super responsive, always happy to take calls and follows me up (ie keeping me honest!). He's also been keen to work with us to find the right sorts of candidates. Great work!"

"Matt was up front, punctual and kept me in the loop at every step, he explained every detail on the interview process very clearly and has continued to check in with me even after I secured the position"

"I'm really happy with Matt. He has found us 3 candidates so far and has a great attitude."
