Offshore Wind Farm

What is the most popular market for perm hires and why?

Offshore & Onshore Wind are hands down our most popular markets. The wind industry is one of the fastest growing market sectors, globally, and we get a very high interest from candidates who want to gain work experience.


What is the least popular market demand for perm hires and why?

As it stands, there doesn’t seem to be a ‘least popular market’ as globally there is a shortage of candidates across all sectors. However, we are hoping to see a rise soon!


Paul Liffen - UK & Europe Head of Permanent Recruitment at ersg

“ In the last 2 years ersg have established themselves as a market leader in Permanent Recruitment within the Renewable Energy and Engineering market sectors. Off the back of ersg’s Freelance & Contract Divisions and their 15 years of experience, my Perm Team has been able to establish relationships and long term agreements with the largest Developers, Consultancies, Contractors and Sub Contractors across the UK and Europe within Renewable Energy”. - Paul Liffen

We want to know more about the team! Let’s hear from the them..

Hi, I’m Paul Liffen, I am the UK & Europe Head of Permanent Recruitment and I have been at ersg for 2 years now specialising in the Recruitment of Permanent PMO vacancies. I take pride in training my team and it makes me proud seeing them grow into successful Recruitment Consultants. Having worked with ersg's CEO & COO previously, I was already familiar with the environment I was going into, and I knew the career progression would allow me the ability to excel in my career.

Hey, I’m Freddie Samuels, I am an Associate Consultant and started at ersg 8 months ago. My speciality is within Design, CAD, GIS and BIM vacancies. I joined ersg because I had friends who worked here and they said nothing but good things about the company and people, so I thought it was the perfect opportunity for me. I love the fact that every day is different and the journey to being successful keeps me going. We also have banter which means there’s never a dull day.

Hi, my name is Klaidas Rudis and I have been at ersg for 1 year. I am a Consultant within the perm division and specialise in the Permanent Recruitment of Fabrication, Concrete, Foundations Managers & Engineers. My favourite things about ersg is the working environment, it really is a fun place to work and everybody gets on really well. There is a great atmosphere every day and it’s a bonus when you like the people you work with! The reason I joined ersg was because I always wanted to work within Recruitment and ersg are the no.1 in renewables recruitment so there was no other option.

Hi, I’m Billy Flynn and I am a Senior Consultant on the Perm Team. I have been at ersg now for 14 months and I specialise in anything WTG related – Blue Collar & White Collar. I had over 10 years Sales experience before being headhunted to work at ersg. Looking back, I had several offers from other Recruitment companies, but after interviewing with ersg, meeting the people and seeing the work environment, it was a no brainer to join. With no previous recruitment or renewables experience, it was reassuring to me that training was put into place when you first join.
