Power & Energy

The Power & Energy recruitment team was set up in 2013 to respond to rapidly expanding markets such as Renewables, Connections, Generation and Energy Management. In that time we have developed specialist industry knowledge, which is reflected in a wide client database spanning start-ups developing new and innovative technology, to well established multinational corporations that are expanding their operations or relocating business units in order to meet market demand.

Within these businesses, the On Target team has built strong relationships with Managing Directors, Heads of Sales and Marketing, and Directors of Technical, Engineering, Commercial and Operations departments.
