This month, we shine the spotlight on Metro Mechanical Services. Keen to support military personnel into careers in commercial drainage, the company offers on-the-job training and job shadowing.

Metro Mechanical Services is a leading specialist in commercial drainage. Operating nationwide, Metro Mechanical Services provides expertise across a wide range of services from drainage, plumbing, pumps, sewage treatment, pipe work and civil engineering. 

Dedicated to doing the job properly and not cutting corners, Metro Mechanical Services has built up a strong reputation as the market’s  “problem solver”. In order to detect and solve technical issues, Metro Mechanical works with a range of sophisticated technologies including advanced reporting software, powerful analytics engines and cutting edge devices alongside a fleet of state-of-the-art tankers.  

Thanks to this reputation and the expertise of its engineers, Metro Mechanical Services works with some of Britain’s best-known businesses including hotels, global restaurant brands, financial services firms, healthcare providers and top property management companies. 


Committed to acquiring ex-military talent, Metro Mechanical Services hired Ex-Army soldier Carl Foster as a Tanker/Drainage Engineer after he was medically discharged in 2018. After joining, Carl shadowed an experienced engineer for over a month to learn more about his role before taking his High Pressure Water Jetting qualification, CSCS Card and  NRSWA – a Streetworks Qualification and Confined Space Certification.

Keen to help others with their transition into commercial drainage, Metro Mechanical Services is willing to train and hire veterans and reservists. Ensuring that its engineers are at the leading edge of technical competence, Metro Mechanical Services provides continuous training and development to each employee throughout their career in the company and will provide further support to military personnel wherever possible. Now recruiting through SaluteMyJob, Metro Mechanical’s latest vacancies can be found here.

“Ex-military personnel and reservists add value to Metro Mechanical Services as they bring a variety of skills including discipline, professionalism, commitment, integrity, accountability and loyalty to the business. They’re also team players and are flexible, which is an important requirement for our jobs.”



Your military background will set you in good stead for a job at Metro Mechanical Services. Due to the nature of the work, jobs can be quite physically demanding and often require teams to work long hours in challenging conditions and under considerable pressure. As employees have to come together in order to get the job done, strong people skills are necessary, so your military interpersonal skills will be an asset. Aside from these similarities there are many other reasons why you should consider a job at Metro Mechanical Services after you leave the military:

  • Use your transferable military security skills and wider experience in the civilian workplace

  • Earn a competitive salary

  • Strong career prospects within the company 



  • Professionalism 

  • Discipline 

  • A team player

  • A can-do attitude 

  • Flexibility and adaptability

  • Relevant HGV driving qualifications 

  • NEBOSH qualifications would be an advantage but aren’t essential.
