What our clients say

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

"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

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

Consult Energy have understood our requirements well for a very niche role and provided high quality candidates enabling us to fill our role quickly

Communication has been good with frequent good advice around the market place and the candidate market

I Would recommend Consult Energy without hesitation

Deborah Sibley, Team Energy

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.

Nigel Wilkinson, Gemserv

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.

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.
