Life at MA

We’ve been at the forefront of recruitment since 1978

In that time, we’ve grown from a lifestyle business to a recruitment company with serious plans and ambitions. Currently, in London and Barcelona, we plan to open offices across Europe over the next five years. There’s lots of room for ambitious recruiters to come on board and join us for the journey. Where do you want your career to take you? 

Our value proposition

Here at MA, our people are open-minded, curious, and passionate about quality service with a human touch. We strive to create an environment where high-performing people can reach their full potential and a place that respects each and every individual for who they are.

Some would say we’re a little different to the rest – and we’re sure happy not being part of the crowd. We support personal growth and put well-being and fulfilment at work above everything else because we know that happiness and success will come as a result.

MA Rebrand

Having experienced substantial growth over the past few years, it was time to step back and take a good look at who MA had grown to become. We quickly established the need for a fresh identity, a fresh strategy and a new mission and vision for MA's next chapter.

Bringing this with us into the future, our new strategy focuses us to work towards helping create a smarter technological future by doing what we do best - connecting curious people.

In October 2017, MA opened its office in Barcelona with our Sales Director, Anthony Blomet relocating from London to Barcelona in late 2017 to set-up our new landing ground. 

2011

David appointed Managing Director

David Thuillier is appointed as Managing Director at MA, following his impressive strategy proposal that led to shareholders restructuring the leadership team. 

Since then, MA's strategy remains the same - to create a market-centric approach to its vertical specialism and provide our clients and candidates with recruitment specialists both on the technology and the culture within each market across Europe. 

1978

MA was founded

The journey began in the spring of 1978 when John Bowyer decided to leave his engineering career to set up a recruitment business. John saw a fantastic future in enterprise information technology and thought businesses would need support in finding the best talent to shape their IT systems.

Louis Alexander had met John in IT and shared the same views so much so that he joined the business in February 1979 as a partner. John lead sales and Louis headed up support and operations.
