About Me

Matt Sheppard

Recruitment Director

I graduated from Leeds University with a BA (Hons) in Business Studies & Economics and began my career in recruitment upon graduation.

My first role was working for an independent recruitment company specialising in Engineering and Construction. 

Since then I have been fortunate enough to have successful recruitment roles working for companies such as Hays in the UK and Australia, recruiting for Building Service Professionals, Oil and Gas and M&E.

Having been a recruiter for nearly 20 years, I still maintain the same passion and drive as I did from day one.

I started Bulb Recruitment in 2016 after identifying a need in the industry for a consultancy-led approach to recruitment.  The companies I work with know and trust me to deliver high-calibre candidates that fit their company profile.

I love the challenges that owning my own business opens up, whether that be building relationships with new clients or the sense of gratification on securing someone their dream role.

Outside of work I am a dad of two girls which keeps me extremely busy! Beyond that, I enjoy a number of sports including tennis and cricket as well as a spot of ale now and again.
