about us

Established in early 2016, NextWave Partners was founded by two entrepreneurial recruitment consultants in their late 20s, motivated by a desire to drive the Energy & Infrastructure and Technology industries forward, with an ability to influence the market rather than to simply service it. 

In a short period of time, NextWave has established a leading recruitment brand in our key focus markets. We have done so by offering an unrivaled level of service to our candidates and clients in terms of market knowledge, integrity, and efficiency.

Our specialist recruitment consultants are seen as career coaches and market commentators. They take pride in continually gathering information and learning their core areas in detail, with the objective of giving NextWave’s candidates and clients a competitive advantage on the market and keeping them ahead of the curve.
