The Energy, Power & Utilities sector stands on the cusp of transformational change, set to shape the way companies generate and deliver power, that will drive development across utilities infrastructure & operational environments.

Currently employing approximately 738,000 people in the UK and with an average of £13 billion invested each year to provide the power and energy the nation needs, both sets of figures are destined to rise as the UK moves toward a greener and more sustainable future.

The shift towards renewable energy will support the UK gov’s net-zero targets and hence, will propel new Utilities projects nationally alongside the likes of Hinkley Point C and the newly publicised Dogger Bank Windfarm, already heralding the Utilities revolution in the UK.

As well as these mega-projects, the rapid evolution of Urban cityscapes and the way people live (in the form of smart cities and electric mobility) will also be heavily reliant on Utilities and Energy companies shouldering responsibility and developing the change required.

Vertical Recruitment’s Mult-Utilities consultants have a well-developed network of relationships across Utility & Energy employers, and across our Utilities Contractor talent pool. We have future-proofed our ability to fulfil the recruitment needs of the Utilities marketplace with knowledge, passion, talent, and experience.
