“When I founded Morson I never set any targets, just the burning ambition to be the best in our sector, trusting that passion and ambition, coupled with integrity would be the driving force for success. I am very proud of where the company is today and more importantly of the people in the company, who have helped and who continue to help to retain our market leader position. There is no finish line and that is the challenge.” ​Gerry Mason - Founder of Morson Group | 1938 - 2015​​​

Morson was founded in 1969 by Gerry Mason, the father of our current CEO Ged Mason in the family home in Eccles, just a short distance away from the site of our current headquarters. The company began in modest premises - the office was just a desk under the stairs in the Mason home. The first placement the company made was a structural engineer to ICI in Runcorn, Cheshire. Before long, Morson was beginning to make a mark in the sector providing skilled engineers, designers and draughtsmen on temporary placements across many different industries. 

In 1986 Gerry's son Ged joined the business. In 1999, Gerry retired from the day-to-day running of the business and became non-executive chairman. His son Ged took over the role of managing director. In 2005 he became CEO, with business development director Dr Kevin Gorton taking over as managing director. 

In 2010 Morson moved to a brand new purpose-built head office building on the edge of Eccles, our current home. In 2013, the Group acquired Vital Human Resources Ltd. In June 2015, founder of the Morson Group, Gerry Mason, passed away at the age of 77. In late 2017, Morson further strengthened our presence in IT recruitment with the acquisition of Leeds-based company The Bridge (IT Recruitment). A further acquisition in January 2018 saw our presence expand in North America with the acquisition of CTSNA and Anderselite.
