Specialist recruiters to the Utilities industry, Spencer Ogden reaches the high-calibre candidates other consultants miss. We’ve earned our awards with professional, effective, proactive services, created for clients who need the best in the business.

If you want impressive sector experience, technical savvy and a fast track to hard-to-find talent, our Utilities division works successfully with clients and candidates at every stage of the life cycle.


Meeting 2020 deadlines for European Smart Meter installation means predicted rollout costs of £11billion in the UK alone. And one Smart solution doesn’t fit all – not with so many global agendas and regulations to accommodate.

Ageing grids are being upgraded into intelligent energy networks that can accommodate the new power sources coming online - and meet the environmental priority of a sustainable, low-carbon economy.

Utilities is still a niche market, but evolving Super Grids and Smart Cities mean huge investment - and that’s globally, in infrastructure and technology.”


Like any niche, cutting-edge, technology-led market, Utilities has a skills gap. Those with specialist, in-depth knowledge form a very small talent pool – it’s the pool we draw from exclusively for our clients. They need recruiters as innovative as the industry they work in. Our dedicated consultants cast the net wide to find the right people, taking a proactive approach to headhunting.

We also know how to sell into energy utilities and deliver appropriate solutions, as well as being experts in very specific Smart Grid/Metering technologies. It means we know what our clients are talking about – and who they need on their teams.
