About Us

We Believe There’s a Better Way

Blue Collar Talent Scouts (BCTS) was the product of Dan’s and Wood’s recognition that all too often the skilled trades benefit either the contractor or the technician at the expense of the other. They set out to help change that dynamic and make it mutually beneficial for both.  The contractor and the technician each love the trades but face challenges in recruiting and job placement. We focus on helping both meet to develop mutually beneficial relations and partnerships.

Blue Collar Talent Scouts kicked off with the goal of helping improve recruiting and retention by focusing on ways the Trades Person and the Contractor can work as a stronger team. It’s our conviction that there is honor in practicing a trade that everyone needs, trades which benefit us all daily and are overlooked by many. And these trades can’t be replaced or outsourced in our lifetimes.

Focused on the MEP (Mechanical/Electrical/Plumbing) workspace, BCTS seeks to match great HVAC Techs, Plumbers, Electricians and Mechanics to the right jobs to help them develop and reach their career goals.

Let us help you take your next step towards success!

“The role of skilled trades is even more critical as manufacturing continues to evolve in the high-tech global economy, offering exciting career opportunities that are in high-demand.”

Why trust us?

When you talk to BCTS, you’re talking to guys who have both seen and been burned by traditional recruiters. You know – the recruiters that don’t know the trade at all, who don’t appreciate what you’ve put into it, who just want to make a buck because their usual “market” is slow. The kind of recruiters who won’t be honest with you – or return your call unless it benefits THEM!

We’re committed to the trades, we know the difference between service & construction, between residential, industrial and commercial… and we know the “players” in each arena.

Don’t want to “sell” every job? Don’t like commission pay? We aren’t going to try and sell you on a company with that type of culture. We aren’t ever going to recommend a company that we wouldn’t feel comfortable working with!

We live the trades, breathe the trades and promote the trades! There’s honor in what you do…and we want to honor that hard work on YOUR behalf!

We're committed to your success

We understand the market

We get to know you and your goals

We assess your local/current market

We work hard to match you with the perfect partner
