Getting The Most Out of a Specialist Energy Recruiter

By Consult Energy
Share this article

Working with a specialist energy recruiter has a myriad of benefits, from keen industry knowledge to a better understanding of candidate expectations. If you’re only relying on your recruitment partner on an ad hoc contingency basis, you’re missing out on all the good stuff.

Made up of a team of experts in their field, Consult Energy prides itself on being a true specialist in the energy and utilities market. In fact, we have recently been shortlisted for the Global Recruiter’s Best Specialist Recruitment Business award – so we must be doing something right!

If there was any doubt in your mind as to why using a specialist over a generalist recruiter is the right way to go for your energy and utilities hiring needs, we’re here to settle the score once and for all. Here are some of the top reasons to work with a specialist energy recruiter, all of which have come directly from conversations with clients who’ve had the Consult Energy experience first-hand.

A specialised network

Because we’re embedded in the energy industry day in day out, we get to rub shoulders with some of the most talented people on the market. From the smartest engineers building the future of renewable energy, to the most strategic forecasting experts helping to define energy tariffs – you simply won’t find these people on job boards, because they don’t need to rely on them to find work.

We’re fortunate to have a broad network of industry experts that we’re in touch with regularly who we can reach out to when the right opportunity comes along.

Deeper understanding of objectives

Since we’re familiar with what’s going on in the energy & utilities industry, we naturally have a deeper understanding of what you’re trying to achieve and how that fits in with the wider market. Not only does it make briefing and scoping a much easier process, but it also means we can confidently advise on your hiring strategy and offer valuable insight based on our candidate knowledge.

For instance, at the moment we know that many companies are focusing heavily on extending their services into clean and renewable energy. Wouldn’t you rather choose a recruitment partner that already knows what you’re trying to achieve and has a close network of sustainability specialists to call on?

Competitor insight

If you work with a specialist energy recruiter, the chances are that others in your sector could also be working with them. This might seem like a bad thing on the surface, but in actual fact it just means we have hands-on experience of what your competitors are doing. Now, we would never breach the confidentiality of our other clients, but we can advise you to the best of our knowledge based on what we know about the market and what the benchmark is for offers.

Redundancy care

If you’re in the difficult position of having to make cuts in your business, something which is sadly quite common in the energy and utilities space in 2021, you’ll naturally want to do right by your team. With a specialist recruiter, you’re not leaving anything to chance – after all, we’re much more likely to make quick work of placing those who are facing redundancy than a generalist.

It’s a sore subject, and not something any business leader wants to think about, but our clients know we’re a safe pair of hands should the worst happen. That can be a huge comfort to energy companies of any size.

Beyond recruitment

Another one of the major highlights to working in recruitment within a specialist industry is that we get to be really consultative. Of course recruitment is our bread and butter, but it’s always really exciting to see how recruitment can inform other aspirations that our clients have. For instance, we’ve played a pivotal role in mentoring schemes in the past, have hosted networking events to bring our connections together and we continue to invite industry leaders onto our podcast to keep our clients and candidates informed.

A specialist recruitment agency can be a lot more knowledgeable in your sector than we sometimes get credit for. You don’t just have to talk to us about hiring. We can help you work on your employer brand based on what we know about our candidate base, plus we conduct research for you to find out what the market wants from you as an employer.

In short, we’re simply more invested than a generalist recruiter. All of us genuinely care about this industry and are proud to be able to play a role in driving it forwards. After all, how many recruiters get to say they’re helping to bolster some of the most cutting-edge energy innovations in the world?

We hope you’ll be rooting for us in The Global Recruiter Awards on the 14th of October. Connect with us on LinkedIn to follow how we get on.
