I was born in Norwich, and grew up in Portsmouth, doing A-Levels in English and Sociology. I love my family, and I have three girls.

I grew up in Gosport, eating fish and chips on the beach instead of studying. Luckily, I have managed to use my charm, wit and confidence to bag a great job! Some of my hobbies include trekking through vast terrains, rock climbing, karate, and sailing. Basically, I like walking and play fighting with my dog, and I once went sailing with work.
An interesting fact about me is that growing up I considered becoming a clown so I learnt how to ride a unicycle – I could go about four metres without falling off.
I have been in recruitment since 2013 within the Driving and Logistics sector. I predominantly recruit temporary roles as I much prefer the fast pace way of recruitment life.
I am based in Basingstoke which is where I have lived all my life.
I love to read crime and thriller books and probably read about 3 – 4 books a month but I could never watch a scary film – it’s too scary on screen!!

I was born in Trinidad and Tobago and from there I have lived in New York, North Carolina and the UK. From moving around I have had the privilege of learning from different cultures which has impacted my world view. Seeing how other people live has shaped my interactions both professionally and personally. I feel blessed to be alive and it’s my goal and ambition to achieve great things no matter the environment I find myself in.
I love to play football even more than watching it. I also have a passion and love for music.
I began my recruitment career working within the apprenticeship sector successfully providing recruitment solutions to Independent Training Providers across the UK.
I grew up on the Isle of Wight, moved to London for University and had the amazing experience of living in Australia for 2 years. And just to keep it a little random I 100% think sloths are the cutest animal on earth!

Jack is an incredible recruiter. Keeps in regular contact with updates and support. All the time I was answered on my questions promptly and timely. Clearly well respected and connected in the world of logistics. Thanks Jack
Fran worked hard to ensure I had the best opportunity to be hired. She was very prompt with her communications. I will definitely reach out to Fran again when searching for my next work challenge.
Fran was friendly and professional from my the first phone call we had. Fran sourced me the perfect sounding job, negotiated a wage for me and kept me up to date throughout the process. I was successful in the interview and Fran was very quick to give me feedback from the interview. All staff at WR recruitment know what was going on with my application which shows they have great communication there!
I can’t thank Fran enough for the help she gave me in finding a new role!
Just a quick one to say that Victoria was instrumental in helping me get my current role. She was brilliant in guiding me through the recruitment process, helped me prepare for every stage of the interview and took a genuine interest in how I was getting on at all stages of the process. She regularly asked for updates and showed true dedicated and professionalism throughout. Her attention to detail and follow up are both exceptional and I am extremely grateful for the assistance she gave me.
Highly recommend Matt. Professional and prompt during all aspects of my recruitment process.
Highly recommend Matt, he was friendly and professional throughout the whole recruitment process. Thank you Matt.
Matt has positioned me in my new business venture.
Please do not hesitate in contacting Matt for your next venture. Matt has and continues to be very interactive, thorough the positioning and securing process. I recommend Matt as 5* recruiter who has your best interest at heart.
All the best Matt!
I have to say out of all my dealings with recruiters and agencies over the years, my experience with Matt has by far been the highlight. Matt not only was able to help secure me a life changing new role, he actually cared. From our first conversation it was clear Matt would do all he could to find a role which matched my needs. Couldn't be more grateful and thankful our paths crossed.
Honestly, it was an absolutely pleasure to deal with Matt. Within literally minutes of conversing with him, I felt that he totally understood what I wanted and he adapted well to these requirements. It is all thanks to Matt that I have now got an opportunity to further my career. I am now in a position where I can say that I am truly happy with my job and thanks to Matt, my career is moving forward. I would have absolutely no reservations in recommending Matt. Thanks a lot and all the best!
Matt was really helpful when helping me find a new role, very professional and very friendly! Wouldn’t recommend anyone else!
Very professional and sourced me 2 very good opportunities. I couldn’t recommend him enough enough if you’re looking for a job within the transport & logistics sector.
Matt is a top guy and from the moment of contact he was on the ball .. can't recommend him enough 👌🏻
Matt got in touch with me in regards to a position he had available, and within a day he managed to secure me an interview. Through his help, and the efforts put in, I was successful in getting the job. I've never had a recruitment agent work so quickly and friendly like Matt did. Thank you for all of your help, you're a star!
Matt stands out above the usual recruitment consultants. He goes the extra mile, he continues the search, communicates regularly and clearly and gives honest opinions in the view of transparency. If applications aren’t successful, he continues the search and actively moves things forward. You can easily tell that he keeps both sides of the coin up to date and communicates clear intentions so that there’s no disillusions. What became apparent from my experience of dealing with Matt is that he always goes the extra mile, he actually listens to candidate and the clients and understands their needs. Top job, top man.
Matt has been absolutely amazing throughout the whole recruitment process! I have never met such a professional and dedicated recruitment person. I cannot thank you enough.
I would highly recommend Natasha and WR Recruitment as they have recently sourced me staff at short notice and kept in regular touch with me throughout the contract. It's hard these days to recruity staff direct and it helps to lean on regular friendly recruitment companies that do some of the leg work for you, finding the appropriate people with the right skillsets and attitudes to work.
Jack is brilliant at what he does and very professional with a brilliant work Ethic towards helping clients find the right person or the right company.
Fabulous service and always on the ball
Jack provided me with the platform to network for my new role. Jack provided expert advice and the professional standards required to ensure a quality level of service. I could not praise Jack enough for his efforts in assisting me to find my new role.

Jack kept me informed of every stage of the interview process and the feedback given. I'm glad to say Jack and the rest of the team helped me find me perfect new role. I would highly recommend Jack if you are looking for a job in this industry.
Jack and the team at WR helped me find a new role that suits my skills and experience, as well as offer me the new challenge I was looking for.
Every interaction with Jack and the team has been positive and based on the best solution for me as a client.
I would recommend Jack and the team to others looking for their next role in Logistics.
Guided me throughout the recruitment process.
I really couldn’t have asked for more from Jack! After one conversation over the phone he found me a job role that was perfect for me and put me forward for it, after the interview I got the job!
Communicating with Jack was a breeze with his very polite and outgoing manor.
Thanks again Jack.
Great support from Jack throughout my recruitment process, matched me to a role which was a good fit with my skillset. He kept me up to date and was on hand to guide me into the perfect role
It’s my pleasure to offer my unreserved recommendation for James whom I’ve known for his vast knowledge in logistics & freight forwarding.He has always demonstrated responsibility and a strong entrepreneurial spirit showing a great passion, friendly, committed and exemplary people skills as well as his management style.
James skills are second to none and has a impeccable high standard I admire and consistent. Others would benefit from his experience and the first person i would contact in any situation as his guidance is honoured.
James is seen as a role model in the ever changing logistics and environment.
Throughout my job search james helped me find a new job with all the requirements I was after. very professional and helpful. nothing was an issue and he found me my new job Role. would highly recommend.
Victoria was kind, friendly and ensured I was taking the right steps and gave me advice regarding any subject which I asked about, which helped guide me into the right role. After she recommended my current workplace, I am very happy in comparison to my former, and I'm extremely grateful of the hard work Victoria put in for me.
I can fully recommend Victoria as recruiter. she was always listening and finding the best option for me. Even if I didn't like the job which she found with the week she was able to find me better position. Victoria is the best recruiter which I ever worked with.
Victoria is the best recruiter I have ever met, she has found me a perfect position within 3 days and was there for me every time I had a questions or needed any other help.
Jack was amazing. I'm so thankful he found me a job and I never thought I would say it but I enjoy working now. Thank you Jack!
Fran was very good
Professional agency, that only sends me appropriate job vacancies, quality, not quantity.
Fran at WR was extremely helpful in setting up and recruiting for our Company and even helped solve another business issue we had by getting one of her colleagues to assist.
Top work Jack Lyodd & Thankyou WR logistics
Victoria was brilliant, I got a job from my first interview. I also recommended a colleague who had been made redundant and she quickly secured him a role too. I also passed her information to another colleague but I believe he found a job through other avenues. I can’t recommend Victoria highly enough.
Tom speaks to you about the job in detail & sends the job spec to you and then you can take in the details of the position and ask for your cv sent over if you feel that it is the position for you. Tom always gets feedback after the interview which assist with for further interviews
Victoria was incredibly helpful, patient and ultimately successful in helping me find a new role. I won’t lie I generally have a poor view of recruitment staff, as more often than not they just want to shoehorn people into roles they don’t ultimately want or understand just for their fee. Victoria however was a delight and I can’t thank her enough for all she did for me.
Please note I have been dealing with James regarding a new job in the shipping industry as I have been made redundant. I just want to say its been a pleasure dealing with him. He is such a lovely guy and very helpful. He has gone out of his way to help me out unfortunately I found a job which did not come from him but I wished it did as he has been so helpful. He did get some interviews lined up for me but I did not get the chance to go as i was offered the job same day as the interview and I did except the position. I just want to say a big thank you to James for all is help and time. He has been brilliant. Also spoke to one of the other guys and he was very friendly and helpful too. If I need any help in the future looking for another job I will be contacting James for sure!
Just wanted to let you know how outstanding James was in helping me find work. Was super friendly and easy to communicate with which helped majorly. Also the fact he got stuck in to try help me find a job and next thing you know everything worked out within 1 week. From meeting him, to arranging an interview, to crushing the interview, and now I have a job starting tomorrow.
His helpful nature and easy going attitude was a delight and I’m truly very grateful to have had him looking for work on my behalf. He helped me prepare for my interview and also checked in with me regularly which was so lovely. Definitely have a good recruiter there who has honest passion for his job.
Cant say thank you enough for the awesome work in helping me. Employee of the month I’d say 😊
Thank you so much for all your help James.
I really appreciate it. Your enthusiasm and determination gave me the confidence that there is still hope to find a good job despite the current difficulties in the job market.
Let’s keep on looking.
I am sure We will find a decent job together.
"I just wanted to take the time to let you know I had a really good experience having James as one of my recruiters compared to all the other ones that worked with me by a country Mile. James was very helpful and always had time to answer my questions and communicate with me. Unlike the other recruiters James did not put other companies down which weren't his instead he was honest and I really liked that about him because he was very interested in my future not just rushing me into a job. Unfortunately I didn’t go for the job James found me despite it had the best pay and benefits and a great team to join! James was willing to find me other roles but I had many offers on the table already. The role had great opportunities in the future and James found exactly what I described to him; it’s a real shame I didn’t take that job ! Out of 10 I would rate my experience with James a solid 10 and he has already offered his services if I ever need them again and I know for sure I will be choosing James in the future to help me!”
