Matt Joined RM in 2011 as an apprentice.

Since then Matt has become a very popular member of the team who knows our business inside out. He undertakes multi-disciplined audits and visits client sites on a regular basis. Currently he is a Graduate at IOSH and working towards his Chartered status having recently completed his final formal qualifications.
