Renewable Energy Recruitment Agency Guide

In our 2023 Renewable Energy Guide, we look at how companies can entice the right candidates and, more importantly, how they can keep the right talent to grow effectively. 

We review a range of subject areas, including:
  • A market overview of the primary industry specialisms
  • A recruitment and talent review, investigating productivity, right skilling strategies for future growth of the industry, as well as other trends and advice on retaining your best talent
  • Gender equality in the renewable energy sector, including an interview with Isla Robb, MD at Opergy Scotland and Founder of Full Circle 21 

The Renewable Energy Sector

The UK has set an ambitious goal of decarbonising all sectors of the UK economy to meet their net-zero targets by 2050.

Scotland’s renewable activities support £5.2bn of output, £2.3bn of GVA and 22,660 full-time equivalent employment in the Scottish economy.

In Scotland, where onshore and offshore wind account for the majority of renewable efforts, the development of 20 sites with a collective of over 25GW capacity will soon be underway. These licences were awarded as part of the ScotWind leasing round and subsequent clearing round.

In March 2023, Crown Estate Scotland also announced that 13 licences had been awarded as part of the INTOG (Innovation and Targeted Oil & Gas) Leasing round. The world’s first leasing round, designed to enable offshore wind energy to directly supply offshore oil and gas platforms.

Once the Sectoral Marine Plan has been finalised and option agreements signed (expected 2024), around £262m in applicant fees will be secured.

Once projects are operating, additional revenues will be secured. All net revenues from Crown Estate Scotland go to the Scottish Government for
public spending.

In order for the UK and Scotland to meet their ambitious Net Zero targets, renewable energy companies must attract highly skilled and qualified candidates. But, with increased demand comes increased competition -
companies seeking to attract the best candidates must do more to entice them to join.
