Astute's Power Division are experts in the provision of permanent and contract staff required to support the full project life cycle of power plants across the world.

The Astute full project life-cycle recruitment

Meeting the UK's need for power is a constant challenge. As we strive to meet increasing energy demands whilst simultaneously combating climate change and reducing CO2 emissions, the power industry has never been busier or more diverse than it is today. 

As the industry moves away from the development of more traditional, large scale coal and gas fired power plants in favour of exciting, smaller technologies, the demand from experienced power generation professionals has increased significantly. During such a candidate driven environment, partnering with an agency that really understands how to deal with its challenges is important.

Our Power Division is widely regarded as the industry leader in this niche sector, with over a decade's experience of connecting the right people with the right businesses.

Our experience in this sector is diverse, from working with some of the biggest power station operators, through to the relatively small, but rapidly expanding international companies new to the UK. We have provided entire operations and maintenance teams to large new build plants, and helped those closing down to ensure their staff have the best opportunities available to them. 

We are able to offer permanent, contract and executive search recruitment solutions as well as our unique 'crewing-up' service where we can take partial or complete outsourced responsibility for building entire O&M teams for new build plants.
