He said: “We understand the challenges faced by companies and contractors alike. The future of the industry relies on having the best people in the right jobs.

“Too many of today’s supply agencies are concentrating on the number of hires as opposed to the quality. Often recruiters fail to meet an employer’s exact role requirements as they don’t have the tools or the knowledge to match key competencies with high level labour demands.
“By concentrating exclusively on very niche industry disciplines, we are in a strong position to source and secure the right talent to fill the most critical roles firms need to sustain growth within the marine and renewable industries.”
Prior to setting up UTM, Mr Tozer ran leading marine recruitment services company Goss Consultants before selling the business in 2013. Mr Meeks has extensive experience in sourcing personnel for the offshore sector, having previously led the survey division of an international survey and ROV recruitment firm.

Mr Meeks added: “We aim to support the global marine industry by ensuring companies are sufficiently equipped with the technical and engineering expertise to effectively manage and deliver challenging projects offshore. With the increasing pressure on companies to reduce costs and increase efficiencies, we feel the timing is perfect to launch UTM.
“Our business strategy focuses on providing a dedicated and cost-effective service which will address personnel requirements by managing the supply and demand for the key skills which will help drive the industry forward. This, combined with our experience and global reach is what will differentiate UTM from what is currently being offered in the marketplace.”
