A new recruitment company based in Belfast is introducing top level candidates to employers in energy industries all over the world.

Energis Global is a specialist talent acquisition, human capital and organisational change business. From its Northern Ireland base, the company is operating as part of a wider consortium of businesses within the Global Energy Sector and providing Recruitment Business Partner solutions in addition to Operational HR, Learning and Development and Business Restructuring consulting services.

“If the global recession taught me anything, it’s the necessity for businesses to operate on a multicountry platform,” says Aidan McKee, who together with business partner, Janette McCleave, has set up the forward-thinking new venture.

“Despite the current economic climate, oil and gas industries are thriving. The Government projects that even if its target to source 15% of our energy from renewables in 2020 is achieved, we will still rely on oil and gas for 70% of our needs,” explains Aidan.

“Energis Global is already working with some of Europe’s largest PLCs as well as providing ongoing consultancy services to smaller independent companies.   And we already have a strategic presence in all the major energy hubs, including the UK, Middle East, Asia Pacific, Scandinavia and Australia.

“The Energis Global team comprises specialist consultants focused on temporary and permanent jobs within: surface, subsea, exploration and production, petrochemical, LNG, carbon capture and storage, mining and minerals sectors.

“Our in-depth knowledge of the industry means we are effectively placed to accommodate our clients and candidates alike.”

Between them, Aidan and Janette have a wealth of recruitment experience in this specialist market.

Having trained with a FTSE listed global recruiter, where he fast tracked to management level; Aidan has spent the last 10 years working with senior talent in the specialist and niche recruitment arenas.

Throughout this period, he has held the positions of Associate Director with a leading independent business, successfully building its team of specialist recruiters, and Head of Operations – specialist appointments – with a high profile international recruitment group, where he built a multi-site operation and established its international Oil, Gas and Maritime division, delivering to the Scandinavian, Asian, and Caspian markets.

Prior to establishing Energis Global, Janette managed the successful oil and gas division within a global recruitment business, delivering resource solutions to both on and off-shore oil and gas clients.

Janette also has more than 10 years experience working with top tier recruiters in London and Australia in talent acquisition, career management, and specialist technical appointments for clients across the globe. As a seasoned recruiter, she has extensive exposure to the full life cycle of engineering and technical appointments.

Adds Aidan: “Energy is very much a growth industry and Energis Global has the experience and industry network to match candidates with fantastic opportunities around the world.

“Our unique approach to providing end-to-end, full-life cycle services means we are able to offer a 360 degree service to our clients and introduce them to the talent they need to drive their company forward.”
