How organisations respond to the profound changes taking place in the Energy Sector has never been more critical. Finding and retaining the right mix of people is a priority that needs time, investment and planning.

What are some of the critical talent pipeline challenges in the Energy Sector?

Lower oil price having differing effects on recruitment and retention across up, mid and downstream oil and gas, nuclear and renewables.
The need to reduce costs and improve efficiency in exploration and production.
Striking a balance between reduced headcount and retention of knowledge and skills needed for the future.
Stiff competition to hire talent in refining and petrochemical
The growth and new build activity within nuclear and renewables driving the need to recruit from outside the sector.
Drive for a more diverse workforce and senior leadership teams.
