Meet Mat Roughton

Mat has been working in Childcare recruitment for over 10 years. He started his career within the Primary schools sector and worked with a wide range of state primary schools across London. Focussing towards the end of his time in London on the Primary Schools sector in the South East.
Mat’s focus changed around 5 years ago when he started to notice that there was a chronic shortage of qualified and reliable staff within the private nursery sector. Within 12 months he had migrated from working with temporary staff in the state school sector to working predominantly with permanent nursery staff serving the Greater London areas.
Mat is now a member of the Solid Recruitment team and is happy to be joining an established organisation that focuses on the nursery sectors across the whole of the UK.
Mat brings with him a wide range of knowledge of the nursery sector and is look forward to continuing his career helping nurseries across the country to find the right staff members for their settings.
Over the years Mat has got to know a wide range of nursery owners and managers over the years and believe he have a very good insight into what a client is looking for when they are recruiting for their business.
Outside of the office a lot of his time is consumed by his 7-year-old daughter. He is also a fiction writer and at the time of writing, has one book that has been self-published on Amazon, and another 2 projects in the pipeline. So if you know of any publishers looking for fresh new talent, send his details their way!!
