Spencer Ogden casts the recruitment net wide for its clients, approaching and engaging high-calibre candidates across the energy industry worldwide. Our specialist Power team also have the in-depth sector understanding and niche international network that means they can move fast.

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


The industry has lost its youth appeal. Over the last ten years, graduates with the relevant engineering degrees have become scarcer; specialist skills are now in short supply.

To find the talent 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. We’ll also talk to potential recruits even if they’re not currently looking or have opted out of the traditional recruitment process – and negotiating a client/candidate win-win is one of our strong points, particularly in a market where the expert can dictate the rate.

With a growing, increasingly ‘switched on’ global population, the demand for power is on the rise – and thermal power will be bearing the brunt, demand increasing to as much as 62% by 2030. Supporting the 1,800+ existing stations, and developing more, alongside researching ways to reduce environmental impact, will pull on people power as never before – and there’s a shortfall in the expertise required."


It’s a candidates' market and an increasingly mobile one. As well as Europe and Africa, contractors are now also following work into the growing Middle Eastern and Asian 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.
