Matthew Rollinson

Founder of LiCa Scientific and hands-on Recruiter working with the team. 

I'm responsible for LiCa Scientific overall and spend a lot of my working week working on the projects in the business, interviewing candidates and discussing recruitment needs with clients. 

My additional areas are in academic engagement, I work on helping people to access the scientific jobs market especially if seeking a first role in industry. I also work on helping with career advice, and general educational engagement. 

I am open to discussions both short and long term about working with LiCa Scientific. Some of the clients we work with we spend many months briefing and discussing with before taking on their opportunities. 

Finally, I am continuously working on improvement projects at LiCa Scientific. Recently this has been the roll-out of major changes across our temporary business, partnering up with Bright HR and Quickbooks and we are using technology across other areas of the business to support the scaling-up of this company.

This allows us to invest time in the most important thing we do, finding the best candidates for your company or the best job for you if you are seeking. 

Finally, for the German speakers I have been learning your language for 5 years, fulfilling a lifelong ambition to be multilingual. While I did this for many reasons, as I progress in my language skills I'm more and more able to work in German, and as time goes on you may see more content and activities from me in the German markets!
