It's controversial but also crucial to the world’s energy supply - Nuclear Power is no ordinary recruitment proposition. Spencer Ogden’s professional, proactive consultants raise the bar on global delivery.

Nuclear Power is a closely regulated industry with a skills gap – and we know it inside out. As sector specialists, we can talk technicalities. Through an ever-expanding global network, live project tracking and 600,000-strong talent database, we secure the specific skillsets our clients need.


China is the current frontrunner in nuclear new build, with Finland, France and the Middle East close behind. Early project work has kicked off in the UK and Turkey too, with South East Asia and Africa also picking up the baton.

This international evolution is calling for a huge mobilisation of technical support and niche personnel – but the talent is in short supply. This makes a future-proof recruitment strategy essential.


The experts behind the construction boom of the 70s and 80s have retired; the reactors they built are due for decommissioning and need replacing. Now there’s a skills gap - and an opportunity for experts in other sectors.

Candidates from Oil & Gas and Power are taking a profitable side step – and the fact that Spencer Ogden works across all sectors makes this knowledge transfer seamless.

Our proactive approach helps too. Live project tracking means we pick up the right candidates before they finish a project and hit the open market. We’ll also approach the best people for the job even if they’re not currently looking – and negotiating a client/candidate win-win is one of our strong points.

The energy industry’s most controversial contender, nuclear power now provides 13% of the world’s supply – and with over 60 new plants currently in construction in 13 countries, the upward trend continues on a global scale."



Competition for specialist knowledge is fierce and in a growing global market, recruitment has to be an international affair. Clients need local and ex-pat candidates, in-country or region, plus recruitment consultants who listen and understand their specific technical requirements.

Our global reach mirrors the mobility of the experts in our network, which means we’re with them for the long term. Connections with the industry’s forward thinkers and innovators, plus a flexible, creative approach to meeting the brief allow us to deliver the teams or individuals who give our clients the competitive edge in their own country and worldwide.


International security, health and safety and the environment – the risk vs. benefit debate continues, although, in many minds, reactors are the most efficient form of sustainable power.

This means recruiters need to understand how to work in a highly regulated and sensitive industry. Our extensive global network gives our clients access to the most qualified professionals in Nuclear Power – the ones with the necessary clearance and experience.
