Demand for maintaining and improving utilities is on the increase and will be for some time to come, potentially forever. People and businesses need access to ultrafast broadband, better heating and air conditioning, power and a quality supply of water. Loxwood Moore works with companies that deliver utility services whether they are consulting engineers, contractors or operators. Demand will remain relatively steady going forward, and companies are working hard to improve energy efficiency as part of a global commitment to develop green strategies.

Globally, power and utilities companies face a rather complex challenge. From improving environmental performance to maintaining system reliability, they must successfully meet increasing consumer expectations. Consequently, the industry finds itself being pulled to economise, whilst at the same time trying to drive further innovation in the industrialised world. A utilities and energy recruiter must be mindful of these competing priorities and consider whether a candidate is able to think broadly enough to find workable solutions. At Loxwood Moore, we specialise in the following subsectors of this most vital of markets:

  • Water, clean and dirty.
  • Power generation and distribution.
  • Renewable and clean technology.
  • Telecommunications and broadband.
  • Nuclear.
  • Management consultancy and professional Services.
