About us

Our purpose

HireWave is a specialist telecoms recruitment and technology consultancy.

Our purpose is to help Telcos, become TechCo’s.

We help managers at European telcos find the experts they need to deliver technology projects with niche skill-sets. Our management has over 10 years’ experience helping global telcos consult, recruit and manage the delivery of innovative technology projects. During these 10 years, we’ve worked shoulder to shoulder with Tier-1 consulting firms in complex, global, politically sensitive environments.

Clients choose to work with us because we stand for quality, value and delivering a genuine experience. Being a small consulting firm gives us certain advantages over our larger competitors. We’re agile and quick to adapt, focussed and operate a highly-efficient business model.

Our founder

My name is Matthew Carr and I am the MD at HireWave. For over 10 years, I have specialised in telecoms recruitment and technology consulting. During this time, I proudly became the highest performing recruiter for a leading global recruiting firm and drove the growth of an autonomous UK subsidiary of a publicly listed Germany technology consultancy over four-fold in 4 years.

My primary responsibility is identifying, winning, staffing and delivering innovative technology projects for global telcos like Vodafone. Outside of work, I’m a keen sportsman, having rowed at national level in my youth, it’s mainly ½ marathons these days. I enjoy stand-up comedy, good food, discussing business and technology and the topic of human performance.
