Energy Transition

Putting all our energies behind yours

Our Energy practice has over 30 years of experience within the sector, tracing its origins back to Park Brown Ltd, an Executive Search business which was acquired by FWB in 2015. Today our energy practice deploys its highly effective, collaborative approach to support businesses working in energy transition and renewables globally, having divested and moved away from the traditional oil and gas market and fossil fuels. Our Energy Transition practice harnesses the networks and track record we have developed in this sector and connected industries to enable a smarter, safer, sustainable world – by sourcing the best talent for the organisations driving this change and vision for a cleaner energy future.

Adapting in a volatile market

The transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources requires re-training and re-skilling of workers in traditional energy sectors. Historically, the talent pool within traditional oil & gas has not been the most diverse. It is a complex challenge and requirement to manage and ensure a smooth transfer of skills and expertise, but also to increase the diversity of thought across the talent pool.

With our international reach and the global mobility of talent within the energy transition talent pool, this is a key focus area for FWB. As demand for this talent in the renewable energy and cleantech sectors increases, competition for skilled professionals is intensifying.

This competition can drive up salaries and benefits, making it difficult for smaller companies or startups to attract and retain top talent. Our market mapping and salary benchmarking services ensure you always receive the most up to date advice and access to the best talent available.

The distribution of renewable energy resources is not uniform globally, leading to geographical disparities in the supply and demand for talent. Our global reach helps address this and gives you a competitive advantage in attracting this talent to the UK.

Whether it’s a Chair to lead the board of scale-up of a Private Equity backed cleantech, the CFO of a wind turbine manufacturing business, or the Director of a Subsea engineering and technologies business, FWB have the track record and expertise to advise your energy transition business.
