Richard and I have known each other for 35 years, which is quite a different background to many business owners, I’m sure! We went to Cubs together, the same senior school, travelled the world together (including coaching football in the USA, working in sales in Australia and lots of lying on the beach in Fiji and Thailand!) and then lived together in Birmingham, where we started our separate recruitment careers, learning first-hand the importance of resilience and collaboration as we built up our knowledge of the job, before deciding to start Consult Energy at the end of 2009.
As the business grew and we focused more on Energy and Renewables, we became hugely motivated to change these sectors in the UK and become the “go to” recruiters in the industry.
It gives me great pride to know that Consult Energy is built on a solid foundation of over decades of friendship, and it has grown into what it is today through drive and dedication, collaboration, and our extensive knowledge of the energy industry.
My vision to create good practice within recruitment starts out with having high levels of integrity and aiming for 'the exceptional everyday'.
This can range from something seemingly minor, like emptying the dishwasher if you notice it is full, to going above and beyond to help someone secure their perfect role within the energy sector.
Whatever it is, I believe in putting in 100% with everything you do.
Our job is not selling equipment or objects or offering abstract services, we work with humans, and therefore, the service they get and how they feel is of paramount importance to us.
Consult has worked with me on a number of Analytical vacancies over the last couple of years, and I have been very impressed with the service they have provided. As a result of their hard work we have hired several members of staff across the business, and the quality of candidates she provided was excellent.
Consult exceeded my expectations when it came to the recruitment process and the calibre of candidates they provided, and I would have no problem coming to them again in the future.
They took the time to understand the needs we had as a business, and the skill sets we required, and were very good at matching these with the candidates they provided.
I would definitely recommend Consult Energy to others, and have already done so to other managers internally.
Mark McGee, Brook Green Supply
I am delighted to have worked with Consult Energy both as a client seeking opportunities and as a client looking to recruit. I have always found Consult to be professional, helpful and responsive. They are able to read between the lines of an opportunity and will find individuals who match your requirements. I’d strongly recommend them and I look forward to working with Consult in the future.

I Would recommend Consult Energy without hesitation
Deborah Sibley, Team Energy
Working with consult energy made my job 10x easier. No matter what time of day a consultant was always on hand
to take requests, supply high level CV’s and strive to exceed expectations.
The proof of Consults excellence came from both my clients and the engineers that were supplied. Both praising the
communication, work ethic and reliability of the wider team.
I can’t recommend consult highly enough
Daniel Rhoades-Walkley, Hemmersbach
I can’t recommend Consult Energy highly enough, as a preferred partner for a number of years, the speed, quality and ease with which Kevin and the team were able to provide engineering resources set them apart from their competitors.
We used Consult for multiple engineers on fixed contracts, day to day resourcing, projects, as well as onsite requirements without any issues, a real credit to Consult.
Matt Day, Hemmersbach
When trying to fill the vacancy we were supported by Consult Energy who have been extremely helpful and professional. Consult understood our requirements and found a suitable candidate within days. They checked in regularly to ensure all is going well and we are receiving all the support we need. It has been a pleasure working with Consult Energy and we look forward to continuing working with them in the foreseeable future.

BRE was looking to hire multiple Technical Auditors C8. Finding people with technical knowledge around BREEAM is challenging as it is a niche skill set in an already challenging and competitive market. Finding people who are technically strong but also have the ability to interact with customers on a daily basis and have strong communication skills makes the pool of relevant people smaller.Learn more
They had a very niche wholesale energy regulation position that they had struggled to fill for over 3 months due to skill shortage in this field. Going to an agency was seen as a last resort but lack of a candidate pipeline through their own means meant they needed someone to assist with strong insight into the market and thus a contact I knew recommended they use me. Having engaged us just before Christmas, time was of the essence prior to what always becomes a busy hiring period in January.Learn more
