Jonathan Lee Recruitment is building on its heritage of providing high calibre professionals to the energy sector with a new, strategic focus and team revamp, led by Lee Elwell as Principal Consultant.
Formally named power generation, the new energy division has been created as a direct response to the significant demand and changes taking place in the UK energy sector, with many businesses seeking engineering, technology and digital skill-sets in order to quickly adapt to the dynamic market conditions.
Lee has specialised in energy recruitment at Jonathan Lee Recruitment over the past five years and within that time has built a deep understanding of the sector, forming long-term relationships with businesses and candidates alike.
To further strengthen the team, Rob Johnson, Consultant (left), has been appointed, joining Lee (middle), whilst complementing our established asset management division, headed by Les Hines– Associate Director (right). The new energy divison will focus on five core areas; electrification and infrastructure, renewable energy, water, power generation and nuclear, covering the entire project lifecycle.
Lee explains: “There are significant changes taking place in the UK energy sector. UK energy targets to decarbonise, low commodity prices, the emergence of disruptive technology such as cloud and robotics combined with complex regulation and policy changes make it a challenging environment.
“It is an exciting time for the industry. We are working with a number of innovative start-ups and new entrants who are developing novel ideas and products - and really shaking up the energy sector.
“The development of electric vehicles (EV), in particular, is having far-reaching implications for UK energy infrastructure. Technology is evolving rapidly and in order to achieve the expansion goals for recharging/green infrastructure, highly skilled programme managers, project engineers, design & development engineers and software & controls professionals are required.
“I am thrilled to welcome Rob to the team – he brings a wealth of experience in sourcing engineering, manufacturing and commercial professionals across the energy sectors. I wish him the best of luck in his new role.”
