Energy & Commodities

The Energy & Commodities sector occupies a natural and highly essential role in our world. Players range from small local enterprises to large international groups. In the years to come, huge investments will continue to be made in both onshore and offshore projects and activities. Increasingly scarce natural resources and more intense global competition demand organisations in this sector meet new requirements for efficiency and innovation. This demand entails great challenges, but it also offers unique opportunities for enterprises capable of exploiting the possibilities as they arise.

In the Energy & Commodities sector, we have performed demanding executive recruitment both nationally and internationally, particularly in the following industries:

• Oil & Gas
• Renewable Energy
• Suppliers
• Mining and Quarrying
• Agriculture and Fisheries

Requirements for the executives of the future
Large-scale changes make great demands on successful executives in this sector. New and more rigorous requirements for CSR and environmental considerations also entail new requirements for openness and risk management. Technological development gives rise to the possibility of new extensions and increased extraction rates. Executives in this sector must master change management and globalisation. The ability to manoeuvre effectively in the interaction between finance, politics, technology, and market will only become more significant in the future.
