Experience, flexibility and innovation: just three reasons why Spencer Ogden is changing the face of global energy recruitment. Our specialist Mining division follows suit, placing the industry’s finest candidates in key roles the world over.

With an international network of offices, we connect globally and support locally, ensuring professional, efficient and seamless results for delivery on project teams and individual roles, contract and permanent.


Despite current market conditions and unrest across the industry, the fight for talent still remains high.


The industry is making moves towards recruiting candidates who can be taught on the job, migrating talent from other areas within the sector, up-skilling and recruiting from underemployed groups and bringing in relevant skillsets where they’re needed.

To secure the specialists required, recruitment has become an international business and proactive, worldwide search a necessity. Clients need recruiters who think differently.

Live global project tracking means we approach the best candidates before they hit the open market. Negotiating a client and candidate win-win is one of our strong points, particularly in a market where the expert can dictate the rate.

Emerging economies are increasing the demand for natural resources, putting industry growth at the top of the agenda – but the mining sector is short on the talent to make it happen."


It’s a candidates' market and an increasingly mobile one. As well as Europe, Africa and America, candidates are now also following work into the growing CIS and South American markets.

We monitor our talent network, keeping in touch so when a suitable role arises, we know who to call. Our business is based on successful, long-term relationships and when it comes to finding high-calibre candidates, our dynamic global network puts us in the driving seat.


Clients need local and ex-pat candidates, in-country or region, plus recruitment consultants who listen and understand their specific technical requirements.

Through joint ventures or independently, we operate in most countries, mixing with the industry’s forward thinkers, innovators and experts. It allows us to deliver the teams or individuals who give our clients the competitive edge in their own country and worldwide.
