Getting to know... Matt!

07/09/2016

I sat down with Matt Bishop of Forward Prospects to get his thoughts about recruitment and just find out a little more about him!

What is your Primary Role at The Logistics Partnership (TLP)?

I run the Forward Prospects brand, specialising in freight and shipping recruitment across the country.

What made you choose TLP as your next career move?

At the time, I was looking to join a supportive company that would allow personal development and progression. Five years on and I have seen the opportuities materialise which is great!

Tell us a little about your background to date?

I was previously an onsite recruitment consultant for a large Distribution Centre, handling very demanding daily staff needs. Before this I worked at the DWP handling the registrations etc of those who were unemployed.

Tell us something interesting about you?

I am on the committee for two local football sides.

What do you love most about recruitment?

Helping companies to solve problems, but mostly just helping people to improve their lives.

What do you do in your spare time?

A lot of my time is taken up with football. I run a 5-a-side team, am Chairman of our Sunday club which has two sides, and I am now also heavily involved in setting up a development academy as part of our local Boys and Girls Club.

What are you looking forward to the most about progressing with TLP?

Building the Forward Prospects brand even further.

Do you have any sporting loyalties - if so, who?

I am loyal to my own, local sides and am also loosely an armchair Aston Villa fan.
