As we continue our growth across America, we are excited to announce the launch of our new Canadian headquarters in Calgary, Alberta.

Led by Country Manager for Calgary, Lee Rook, the hub is now officially launched with 22 team members, a Spencer Ogden trademark style office and a projected growth of 100% over the next year.

Lee Rook has over 15 years’ international recruitment experience, having worked across the UK, Europe, Middle East, Africa and North American markets. Lee says,

There are some very exciting projects underway in the 
Canadian energy market so this is a perfect time for us to officially launch in Calgary, and we are looking forward to expanding our presence in the city.
We celebrated the launch with a party where co-founders Sir Peter Ogden (Chairman) and 
David Spencer-Percival (CEO) hosted Calgary’s energy professionals and guests were given an exclusive preview of the office’s unique design.

Spencer Ogden sets the standard in office design and our Calgary office is no exception. Our clubroom is complete with oversized leather furniture and a crackling fireplace, whilst the boardroom showcases Canadian hockey greats as well as vintage artwork from Lake Louise.

The sales floor is kitted out with AstroTurf flooring, following the style of our other global hubs but with its own local style influences.

Ed Ogden, Director of the Americas comments,

Following recent office openings in the US, we are delighted to be expanding into the thriving Canadian energy market as well, and this office represents our ambitious growth plans. We are confident that our burgeoning local team can help new and existing clients to develop their operations significantly by attracting top talent.

The Calgary office follows in the footsteps of our recent North American expansion, with new office openings in Orlando, San Diego and Denver. Future plans in Canada also include an office in Toronto. 

David Spencer-Percival, CEO of Spencer Ogden says,

We’re delighted to bring new jobs to the recruitment sector in Calgary and deliver the best talent for our clients. With an increasingly stimulating energy market, Calgary represents a great challenge and opportunity that we’re excited to be a part of.
