Upon graduation in 2012 with a Law degree; I worked on several internships with City of London law firms within intellectual property & criminal defence. I joined the Oil & Gas recruitment industry as a Resource Consultant covering the APAC region (London am time zone) providing ex-pat & local engineers to large CAPEX offshore projects that were fabricated in Singapore, Korea & Indonesia. I have delivered temporary contractors to some of the world’s leading energy operators such as Chevron, INPEX, ExxonMobil & BP. I have a passion & strong interest in global energy projects, curious in the technologies used & the vast supply chains that are created.

Areas of specialisation

I focus on the EPC of Power, T&D, Renewable Energy and Data-Centre projects. Supporting the whole life cycle of a project through FEED, concept/design, installation and

commissioning as well as Operations and Maintenance.

Strong track record in hiring Electrical Engineers; (Substation Design – LV-HV), SCADA, Commissioning (Authorised Persons, Senior Authorised Persons, 11kv-400kV) Leads & Managers.

My thoughts on Renewable Energy

The global investment in Renewables (Offshore Wind, Solar PV) as we try and move towards a net carbo-zero future means a global demand & competition for talent, skills & resources.

Substantial investment, training & development in entry-level engineering, commercial & operational careers will be required to meet the demands of current & future energy needs.
