Matt Tarby

Accounts Technican in our Head Office team

Meet Matt, our Accounts Technician – otherwise known as a number whizz. He’s worked for us for over 13 years, but his family connection to the company goes right back to the late seventies when his mum was front of house at The Seafood Restaurant. His dad, a fisherman, has also worked for us over the years too.

Having grown up in Padstow, Matt joined our retail team to earn some money whilst at college and before going off to university to study one of his passions in life, health and fitness. After graduating he returned to the retail team, where his dedication was rewarded with a promotion that saw him manage our deli. During this time, he realised he was happy to enjoy sport as a hobby but wanted to take a new career route, and so began a three-year evening course in accountancy at Truro and Penwith College. A year into this course a junior position in our accounts team became available and he hasn’t looked back since. His drive and enthusiasm to develop within the team, including being part of our Future Stars programme, has seen him take on more responsibility as an Accounts Technician.

When he isn’t at work Matt plays hooker for the Wadebridge Camels rugby club, the very same team that Rick used to play for! He’s also a big fan of Liverpool and loves to watch their matches when he’s not busy with his family or on the rugby pitch.
