Jane Matthews

Jane is the brains (and the brawn) behind Wildcat Careers. Jane started as a receptionist for an IT recruitment agency. After watching the recruiters, she pushed to be given some recruitment projects to work on. That was the spark for Jane, and after just a few weeks with a Yellow Pages and a phone, she became one of the top billers for that recruitment firm! This is where her passion for recruitment began. Jane spent the next decade working in recruitment, following the journey to London and working with a lot of amazing people!

After 10 years in recruitment, she wanted a change and moved to work as a manager for an FM company. This gave Jane an insight into working with recruiters from the other side of the fence, and how things should (or shouldn’t!) be done. The FM company moved their offices to Dublin, and not wanting to move Jane recruited a department in her place! Jane then headed back into the world of recruitment with an HR consultancy and then her own company – Wildcat Careers!
