Matt Newman

Co-Founder & Managing Director

In 2011, myself and two business partners discovered a gap in the market for a company to specialise in placing finance roles exclusively within the recruitment sector, and so Camino Partners was born at the start of 2012. Following a successful beginning and increasing demand from clients, I played a lead role in expanding our service offering to the recruitment of all back-office to boardroom level professionals.

This puts me in a unique position of both running a successful and growing recruitment business, but also working with hundreds of staffing firms in hiring leadership talent to grow theirs.

In my current position, I set up and lead our USA brand - Cavana Search.

Cavana Search specialises in placing staffing and sales roles in the staffing sector across the United States.

I am driven to succeed and provide the most effective recruitment experience our clients can envisage. The recruitment process is a trusted partnership and both recruiter and client should work with honesty and integrity. I have found that this approach has allowed Camino to partner with our clients, enabling them to build high performing teams.

I live by the motto that today’s candidate is tomorrow’s client. I spend the time with all candidates to understand their motivations, advise them on the market and their options and ultimately to ensure that they will fit culturally within our clients.

I like to know all the best people within the staffing industry, I’m an avid networker and appreciate the value of extensive and long-term relationships.

If you’re a staffing firm business owner looking to hire recruitment or sales talent for your team, or you’re interested in pursuing a career in the sector or alternatively would like advice or to network, please get in touch.
