Matthew Reilly

Managing Director

“Some people fall into recruitment…I chose to pursue it”

Spend just a short amount of time around Matthew and it will quickly become apparent that he lives and breathes his business. His genuine passion for the industry and his clients is something very difficult to replicate, which has translated into an impressive and highly successful track record in recruitment.

Matthew has always prided himself on going the extra mile for his clients, approaching all relationships with a ‘human touch’ to better understand them as individuals. This enables Matthew to build a fantastic rapport both personally and professionally with each and every client, and the strength of these relationships speak volumes to his character.

As an entrepreneur even from a young age, Matthew has always been focused on being a differentiator. Today, with more than 7 years experience and a flourishing career in recruitment, he believes that standing out in a crowded industry has as much to do with your values and conduct as it does your results.

“Integrity is everything. It’s a true shame that the recruitment industry occasionally catches shade of a negative reputation, from unethical companies or individuals not conducting themselves as professionals. When choosing to work with Osprey, clients can be certain they’ve invested in a company with ethical and honest people that get results from doing business the right way.”

Matthew specialises in retained services and headhunting assignments, with plans to continue Osprey’s growth in these areas, whilst maintaining the company’s fantastic reputation and growing their customer base.

Described by his peers as a dedicated and tenacious recruiter, Matthew also has a reputation for his heart of gold and for lighting up a room with his positive and energetic demeanour in the office. It’s rumoured that he falls short when it comes to the tea and coffee round, but hey, no one’s perfect.

Matthew stays very active in his spare time as a keen golfer and skier, as well as participating in endurance based challenges and obstacle races. When relaxing, you’ll find Matthew spending quality time with friends and family, or on walks with his two beloved dogs Ronnie & Reggi
