Jacob Matson

Talent Consultant

​Being one of New Zealand’s fastest men, Jacob brings his competitive fire to the recruitment industry and the team at Recruit IT. Coming from an HR background, with a passion for people and business, Jacob has the skills and mindset to support, deliver and provide candidates and clients with the best possible service and advice.

Jacob has spent the last few years competing internationally as one of New Zealand’s top quarter milers, all whilst completing a Bachelor of Commerce at Victoria University. He enjoys the challenge of balancing multiple goals, and thrives in such a setting.

Coming from the south, Jacob has fallen in love with the city that is Wellington, and has developed a patriotism of pride when it comes to representing the city – whether it be through competition or nurturing the talent pool the city has to offer. He believes Wellington is not only the best place in New Zealand, but globally.
