Matt Newman

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 the success and 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 & 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 & lead our USA brand - Cavana Search.

Cavana Search specializes 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 could wish for. 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 motivators, advise them on the market and their options and ultimately to assess that they will culturally fit 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.
