About Us

About MTS

MTS was founded in 2001 by three experienced technical recruitment professionals. From the start our aim was to provide the best client service possible.

Today we remain a specialist technical and engineering employment business. We don't do anything else - which is why we have such a good understanding of our clients' requirements. And with over 75% of our business coming from long-term client relationships, we are still clearly client-focused.

A service you can rely on

In an industry with a notoriously high staff turnover - typically 63% of staff move on each year - 67% of our staff have been with us for three years or more. That continuity and ongoing experience enables us to offer unrivalled levels of service.

Our clients include:

  • Tyco Fire & Integrated Solutions
  • Keeler
  • Custom Metal Fabrications (CMF)
  • Dornan Engineering
  • Littlehampton Welding
  • Babcock Airports
  • Shepley Engineers
  • ITN
  • ITW
  • Meggitt Aerospace

We're also a Corporate Member of REC and have ISO 9001 accreditation.


Jason Ball, Managing Director

Jason has extensive experience within technical recruitment and was working at senior level in the industry when he founded MTS in 2001.

A key focus for Jason has been building a very successful recruitment company with the ethos of long term term client relationships rather than short term commercial gain. The success of this approach is reflected in the number of clients and staff who have worked with MTS for over 10 years.

Jason is also a very keen 10k runner, avid Zermatt skier, dedicated Blackberry lover and devoted Chelsea season ticket holder - which ensures lively debate on a Monday morning with other staff who do not worship Stamford Bridge in the same way.

 MTS has grown over the years and the staff operate in key teams focused on delivering the the companies specialist services:
