Global Head of Corporate Responsibility, Linklaters LLP
Matt's first stint in Corporate Responsibility was with Barclays where he delivered the bank's community affairs programme in the West Midlands before taking a role leading all national sponsorships and volunteering. This included devising and developing the award-winning Barclays Spaces for Sports, still the UK's largest ever community sports sponsorship. Looking to get a view from the other side, he moved to regeneration charity Groundwork in 2005 where he was responsible for setting up a new branch in Corby: Groundwork North Northamptonshire. Over three years, the charity grew to 15 staff and a £750k turnover, focusing on youth work, community development and CVS support. Moving to Linklaters, he led their global community investment activity for three years and, latterly, has taken additional responsibility for all corporate responsibility activities.
Matt joined Nestlé in 2003 following a number of senior HR roles within the European defence contractor Matra BAE Dynamics and then BAE Systems as Head of Human Resources and Head of Employee Relations for the Hawk Aircraft. In 2006 he was promoted to the role of Director of Human Resources for the Nestlé Rowntree Division. In 2008 Matt moved to Switzerland as Assistant Vice President Human Resources Nestlé SA before returning to the UK in August 2010 to take up the role of Group Human Resources Director Nestlé UK & Ireland. Matt has a Masters in organisational design and development and his interests are in organisational design, employee relations and NLP. Matt is also the Chairman for the Centre for Performance Led HR at Lancaster University. Matt is married and has one daughter.
