#HIRING

Looking for talent? The chances are we know about them.

Tailored services to
guarantee results.

For any business, nothing is more important than the people you have within it, so we know it can be tricky finding the right energy recruitment partner who appreciates that. Since there's no 'one size fits all' approach, we've created a range of services so you can best choose the one that suits you.

Our process gets the job done

We're not in the habit of over complicating things, we know what works and we do it well. A typical process looks like this:


Get started

Consult

It’s in our name for a reason. We will take the time to understand your needs and outline the fundamentals of your search, as well as the ‘standout’ qualities that you desire in each candidate, what the bigger picture is for the business and how the new hire fits into that plan longer term.

The search begins

We use a combination of headhunting, digital marketing campaigns and network referrals to open up both passive and active candidates that match your requirements.

The selection process

We screen all potential candidates over the phone so you only see the best of the best. Once we've got our shortlist, we'll send them.

The interviewing phase

To save you time, our team can conduct a video interview with the shortlisted candidate ready for you to review. We will ensure that all candidates are prepared, informed, and will relay back to you feedback so you know exactly how each candidate feels about the opportunity.

The negotiation stage

Every search is unique, and with that sometimes challenges may arise. We know it can be a fine balance in securing the top candidates from their current employer or getting them to agree the right salary. This is where our team of experts are there to offer support in negotiating and steering those tough conversations.

Placement

Once we have secured the placement, our work doesn’t stop there. We’ll liaise with you and the prospective candidate to ensure a smooth transition between the offer acceptance and start date. We'll manage the relationship with the candidate to make sure they stay excited about joining your company and help if any issues arise such as a counteroffer from their previous employer.

What our clients say

Working with Consult Energy sets the standard for a good recruitment agency. 

Consult takes the time to understand our business and the role, ensuring a candidate who is a good fit. 

Even when a candidate doesn’t get the role, they use the feedback to ensure an even better candidate the next time around. 

I look forward to seeing what candidates Consult have in store for us over the coming years!

Magdalena Jennings, Brook Green Supply


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.

"Consult Energy are very knowledgeable of the energy industry and we have built up a very open and honest line of communication which reduces the time spent reviewing unsuitable candidates. During the past 12 months Consult has delivered on the majority of the vacancies we have placed with."

- Julie Johnston, Bryt Energy

Bryt 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

“Our experience working with Consult Energy was very positive throughout the entire process. We met a dedicated, professional, and engaged team that listened to us and understood our specific requirements finding a broad range of diverse candidates. Clearly, they know the market, engage with candidates in a very professional manner and seem to have a very engaged set up behind the scenes which brought speed to the process compared to other agencies we've used.  

From our experience with Consult Energy I can only give my highest recommendation to others that are looking for a professional, up to date and engaged search company 

It has really been a pleasure working with you guys, I’m sure it’s not the last time”

Benny Jakobsen - Head of P&D EPCO - Ørsted 

“Having worked with Consult Energy for the last year, I’ve been really impressed with the service provided.

From day 1, they listened carefully to understand our business and the skills required for the role and have been able to effectively profile the search criteria accordingly in line with expectations set from the start. Given our absolute commitment, Consult Energy were able to mobilize very quickly, setting out a mutually agreed approach to best suit our needs, proactively headhunting from our competitors and presenting those with the correct industry knowledge, core set, achievements and personal motivations.

Regular feedback has been provided throughout and I would have no hesitation at all to recommend Consult Energy to anyone serious about making key hires.”

Stephane Bouvier - CEO - Inframark 

“The service that Consult Energy provided was excellent, they understood our requirements and offered well-vetted candidates.

Consult has been the most consistently attentive, responsive and are continuously providing high quality candidates. Other recruiters have been hot and cold - Consult is our top recruiter for our engineering needs.”

CJ Colavito, REP  - VP of Engineering at Standard Solar

“Since working with Consult Energy, they have provided a great service. They have found multiple candidates to meet our requirements, screened them effectively and presented a shortlist within a week. Will followed up with both me and the candidates to keep everyone on the same page and was very thorough in his communication.

We worked with Consult Energy on multiple roles and all candidates were an excellent match for what we wanted, even for those positions in more rural areas. I would have hired all shortlisted candidates but only had one opening!

I’d have no hesitation at all in recommending Consult Energy, they have been a great resource and I plan to work with them again in the future.”

Saundra Jones - Director of Human Resources - Matrix NAC

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 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

Location: Watford

Client: BRE


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.

Time Pressure for Niche Role

Time Pressure for Niche Role

Location: Manchester

Client: ESB


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.
