Meet the VIQU team

Our VIQU management team have worked together closely for 9 years, forging close personal friendships, alongside their professional work together. A strong foundation upon which to build the VIQU family.



Matt Collingwood – Managing Director

Matt had a vision to build a company with a people centric approach, aiming to deliver the highest levels of customer service and delivery. VIQU is that vision in reality, offering ‘Smarter People Solutions’. With over 20 years experience in IT recruitment, Matt has placed over 4,000 IT professionals so can channel a wealth of knowledge and experience into the VIQU offering we provide our candidates and clients. Matt is the Co-Chairman (Midlands Region) for The Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo), which is the UK’s largest recruitment membership body and is the Vice Chairman for a recruitment and skills creation charity called Starting Point Recruitment.

Outside of his role at VIQU, Matt enjoys the great outdoors. As a keen game fisherman, he can often be found by the riverbank with a rod in hand, or shooting clay pigeons in the middle of the countryside. For fitness, Matt enjoys sparring at his local boxing gym and is a Krav Maga Practitioner.


Hannah Parsons – Finance Director

In August 2015, VIQU appointed Hannah Parsons ACMA, CGMA as Financial Director.

Hannah is an experienced Chartered Management Accountant, who qualified with worldwide commendation and also holds an undergraduate degree in Accountancy, Financial Management and Business Studies from the University of Sheffield.

Hannah is committed to the CPD requirements of her professional body (CIMA), keeping up to date in the fields of both accountancy and recruitment and as such is well placed to ensure the compliancy of our finances and that of our contractors.



Mike McEvoy – Director

Mike has close to 13 years recruiting and management experience predominantly within the UK IT recruitment market. He prides himself on providing an industry leading service for both the contractor and client. Building on his specialty, Mike is responsible for the Contracts division of VIQU, valuing feedback and service improvement throughout the lifecycle of a contract.

Outside of work, Mike will be found on the golf course, often discussing the merits of his beloved Aston Villa.
