Spencer Ogden Company Brochure

  1. 1. The Energy Recruiter Spencer Ogden is a new, innovative, and fast growing business of energy recruitment specialists with extensive knowledge and experience in each sector of the energy market. We represent energy professionals at all levels and recruit for clients both nationally and internationally in the sectors of: Oil & Gas• Nuclear• Renewables• Energy recruiting is Spencer Ogden’s sole focus. By joining the dots of all major energy sectors and providing dedicated service, skills and expertise as one recruitment company we create opportunity for both clients and candidates. We strive to deliver the best quality of service to both candidates and clients by investing in the best - people, services and infrastructure, systems and training. As the energy sector is currently undergoing a rapid period of change, it is experiencing a shortage in the skills needed to accommodate a wide variety of ambitious projects. The quickly changing energy landscape means that there is a transition period in which governments and industry must address the adaption of new skills and technology needed. At Spencer Ogden, our experienced and forward-thinking consultants approach this issue by thinking ‘outside the box’ and working together across sectors in order to facilitate the changing needs of our clients and candidates. Spencer Ogden works in partnership with our UK and International client base which includes energy & utility providers, manufacturers, developers, research institutes, consultancies and international government bodies within the energy sector Spencer Ogden offers a complete recruitment solution encompassing permanent and contract contingent services. We offer the highest level of service for clients across the following sectors: Oil• Gas• Nuclear• Solar• Geothermal• Biomass• Waste Energy• Carbon Capture• Wave/Tidal• Wind• The Government wants the country to generate 30% of its energy from renewable sources by 2020. Currently we get 4% of our energy from those sources. It also wants to see the proportion of energy we get from nuclear rising from 15% to 25%. All that is going to require a huge amount of investment. We expect to see £200 billion of investment poured into the renewable energy sector alone in the next decade.
  2. 2. Oil Spencer Ogden has a dynamic team of specialist oil recruitment consultants, with a combined experience of over 20 years, providing recruitment solutions across the upstream and downstream sectors, globally. Our extended database is developed through strong, long- held relationships throughout the industry and through the extended network of Spencer Ogden offices, in the key market centres of Aberdeen and London. Our multi-national presence provides access to a global talent pool through which we are able to move skilled labour between projects and countries, as well as provide a number of value added services to make these moves easier for both client and candidate. The global downturn has had a knocking effect on the energy industry as a whole in the past year, but the recent rising oil price has helped the oil industry move towards recovery. This recovery has allowed investors to evaluate the ‘black gold’ market and subsequently the resurgence in pan European and global project activity has spelt an upturn in the demand for highly qualified Onshore, Offshore, Surface and Subsea Subsurface Oil and Gas specialists. Gas At Spencer Ogden we have industry experts dealing in the gas sector. The natural gas industry continues to be an increasingly vital part of the energy mix, as a cheaper, and cleaner source of energy than other fossil fuels. It currently provides approximately 20 to 25% of global energy needs and consumption is growing at a rate of 1.6 percent per year to meet demand. New technologies are opening the door to even more sources of supply and these advancements will ensure that the industry sees continued growth and plentiful career opportunities.
  3. 3. Nuclear At Spencer Ogden our global search expertise, comprehensive industry knowledge and experience, help our consultants to deliver consistently exceptional recruiting results. We deliver individuals across all industry activities within the nuclear field for a number of clients including independent power companies, international utility companies, consultancies, equipment manufacturers and contractors. We are continuously recruiting technical specialists from multiple engineering capacities, through to senior level international project management officers. Since the first power station came into operation in the 1950’s, nuclear power has grown to become a vital part of the global energy mix, with 436 commercial nuclear power reactors operating in some 30 countries, and providing 16 per cent of the world’s energy needs. The quest to replace dependency on fossil fuels with affordable, dependable, low carbon electricity has only increased the importance of the nuclear energy sector. There are a further 30 plants under construction and 90 reactor sites firmly planned worldwide. The nuclear power sector in the UK is entering into a period of transition; the 19 reactor sites currently operating within the county provide 15 per cent of energy needs and of these, all but one are scheduled to reach the end of their life cycle by 2023. In order to fill the oncoming energy gap, the Department of Energy and Climate Change have announced 10 potential sites across the UK with the first expected to come online for 2017. The UK government has placed particular importance on nuclear for the country’s energy plan moving forward, meaning that there are plentiful opportunities for professionals in this sector.
  4. 4. Renewable Energy Spencer Ogden specialises in recruiting for renewable energy jobs across the UK and International Renewable Energy Jobs Market in the following areas of expertise: Planning & Development, Design & Engineering, Construction, Operations & Maintenance, Commercial & Procurement, Business Development & Sales and EIA & Environmental. Energy Sources in 2010 Energy Sources in 2020 Solar Solar power, in both solar thermal and PV forms, is swiftly catching up with wind as the fastest growing renewable. New investment in the sector has outpaced that of any other renewable and global grid connected capacity has increased 70 per cent in 2008 to 3GW. Government support in the form of subsidies and feed-in electricity tariffs has seen Germany and Spain take the lead in producing solar energy. The European Commission has earmarked £16 billion towards the development of the solar sector over the next 10 years in anticipation of it providing 15 per cent of the EU’s electricity needs. Geothermal Although geothermal power accounts for only a small percentage of global energy, some 50 countries (14 of which are in the EU) are set up to harness this natural resource. The deep geothermal resources in South West England alone are thought to be enough to provide 2% of the country’s annual electricity demand. England’s only operating geothermal plant has existed in Southampton for the past 20 years and the government is pushing the industry by providing £6 million for the purpose of deep underground heat exploration in the next couple of years.
  5. 5. Biomass The biomass and biofuels industry is growing quickly in the UK and across Europe as it becomes an increasingly important renewable energy option. Currently only 3.7% of Europe’s total energy usage is sourced from biomass fuels, however the UK’s Renewable Transport Fuels Obligation target of 14% of fuel to come from biofuels by 2020, and the EU’s target of 10% means that there is strong incentive and job creation occurring in the industry. In the UK some 550 MW of biomass plants are in the building and planning stages and will add to the 1500 MW capacity currently in operation. Waste Energy Waste Management or Energy-from-Waste (EfW) is a technology has been steadily growing worldwide due to its multiple benefits, including negative variable input costs, waste removal and storage solution, and energy production. Incineration plants have traditionally been public sector but they are now attracting large scale investment as technology has advanced the plants to produce profitable electricity/heat. Approximately 5,000 plants are in operation across Europe, with 30 currently located within Britain and the ambition of 1,000 plants to be in operation in ten years. Carbon Capture The carbon capture and storage industry is gaining strength as governments look for ways to harness emissions in tandem with renewable energy technologies. The UK is at the forefront of the industry along with countries such as Canada, China, Norway and Australia who all have carbon capture projects in development. The first commercial scale project in the UK is set to open in 2014 to harness the emissions from coal plants which provide 37 percent of the UK’s total energy. The April budget outlined that the UK would eventually fund as many as four CCS projects. The EU has also earmarked a large sum to awarded to carbon capture projects and must be awarded to developers by 2010. Wave / Tidal Europe is the global leader when it comes to tidal and wave energy, with projects considered, planned or installed in Spain, Portugal, Scotland, Ireland and Norway. While the sector is still underdeveloped, the UK government is showing its support with £60 million in funding earmarked to be invested in ocean energy sources. The British coastline is 11,072 miles long and has some of the highest tidal ranges in the world making it naturally endowed to be a global leader in the industry.
  6. 6. Wind On-shore Wind Wind is the fastest growing source of clean renewable energy in the world today with more than 100,000 large turbines installed worldwide; more wind power is being installed then any other electricity generating technology. In the UK the wind energy sector has exploded over the past 15 years due to the country’s natural abundance of this resource, with the amount of energy generated by wind turbines increasing by almost 30 fold to 120 GW of operating capacity with another 3.5 GW in the construction and development stages. This is expected to create 60,000 green collar jobs in the coming years. Off-Shore Wind The development of offshore wind energy is seen as an important factor in meeting proposed renewable energy targets in countries around the world. Currently, ten offshore wind farms are in operation worldwide, all located within the EU, with another ten European and two American projects in proposal. The UK is a global leader in this sector with a current operating capacity of 598MW and another 33GW of potential offshore wind farm sites being made available.
