Case Study: Agile Hub & & & Digital Innovation

The Technology Ventures team of a global, world-leading Energy company had been pioneering the creation of a new Digital Venture, investing in technologies to develop digital and connectivity-based solutions for customers, working alongside a global consultancy to deliver this model.

The decision was made to “go it alone” and to create an in-house team of expertise, working closely with Eaglecliff Recruitment, where established relationships with Hiring Managers had already been built and validated. The task was to build a new team of Consultants with creative flair and a passion to drive change in complex markets.

Moving Into Renewables Renewables Renewables

Due to recent expansion into Renewable Energies Trading, including an entirely new Energy desk at various centres across Europe, 2020 sees the launch of a dedicated new division to reflect our continued partnership with one of the world’s leading Energy companies. By working with an established database of technical skills and Energy Trading expertise, we are now focusing on Gas, Power, Wind and Solar technologies within the new Eaglecliff Energy Recruitment division.

Recent demand includes the recruitment of a brand new team of twenty, where we are helping to recruit for key resources for this growing business area within exciting new Gas and Power Markets amidst the growth of a new Azure data lake. The task was to build a new team of Consultants with creative flair and a passion to drive change in complex markets working with all aspects of Trading and Automation with a focus in the Front Office. Alongside this recruitment activities stretch across Energy Storage, E-Mobility and Electric Vehicle Charging as well.

Already on-boarded are a dynamic team of Contractors including a Senior Business Analyst / SME within the UK Gas and Power Markets, C# Application Developers with Front Office Trading expertise and Senior Python Developers with Algorithmic Trading platforms expertise gained through close collaboration with Traders in the Front Office.

Today, the Eaglecliff Energy Recruitment team retains its place as a First-Tier Preferred Supplier to this leading global Energy company. Working collaboratively means that even niche skills and hard-to-find technical expertise can be sourced together. If the need arises, a second tier of Approved Suppliers has recently been established – managed through the MSP functionality that Eaglecliff also provides – that can be brought in if the PSL really cannot place a difficult-to-find scarce skill. This provides a structured Mark-Up mechanism and established Rate Cards.
