Spencer Ogden launches new Berlin office!

10 Oct 2013
This week we opened our 10th office since our launch in 2010, and our first in continental Europe. Based in Berlin, Germany, the office will be headed up by Andrew Roberts, Country Manager DACH with a team of four consultants which will grow to a team of eight by the end of the year.

This expansion into Germany comes as a direct result of ‘energiewende’: the transition of Germany to a sustainable economy by means of renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainable development. 

Andrew Roberts brings with him 15 years’ experience in the recruitment sector and will lead Spencer Ogden’s growth across Europe. Speaking of his new position, Roberts remarks, “I have known about Spencer Ogden for a few years – it is hard not to, given the company’s rapid expansion of late, so naturally I am thrilled to have joined the team. Germany’s energy market is undergoing major changes; because of ‘energiewende’ our major focus will be on the renewable sector – by 2050, 80% of German power will be from renewable energy sources.” 

CEO, David Spencer-Percival says, “The German renewable energy sector is booming – with huge wind farms in the North of the country complemented by advanced biomass and hydroelectric power, it’s a really exciting time to be expanding into Berlin. Spencer Ogden already services German clients, so the opening of this new office comes at the perfect time as we look to continue our aggressive global growth strategy.”

Within six months of opening, the Berlin office will be running a Graduate Academy and will take on an additional ten graduates to continue building the team. Have a look at our Careers Page for more information on these future roles.
