Recruitment expertise in Europe
Our legacy has gone from strength to strength; in the last decade we have purchased 3 European staffing operations to further bolster our expertise and now have 15 offices across the continent.
Careers in Europe
We place technical personnel across traditional and renewable energy markets, as well as the chemicals and life sciences sectors.
We’ve placed national, regional and expatriate talent into some of the continent’s biggest energy projects.
Our discipline-specific recruitment teams support all facets of the energy mix, from upstream, midstream and LNG oil & gas projects, through to downstream operations, chemical plants, and traditional power generation & renewable energy facilities, including sourcing personnel for hydrogen and carbon capture and reduction technologies.
As the scope of Renewable Energy initiatives continues to grow across the continent, we’ve supplied talent to some of Europe’s biggest solar parks and wind farms, both on and offshore, and are a proud member of Renewables UK. Our Zurich office serves as our Life Science hub, where we support companies across the Pharmaceutical, Medical Devices, Biotechnology and Quality Assurances sectors.

NES Fircroft’s unrivalled candidate reach ensures your talent acquisition has a competitive advantage.
Through a global office network exceeding 80 physical offices in 45 countries, the breadth and reach of our talent networks is unparalleled in the technical recruitment market.

Getting staff to an energy project in a remote location can be challenging and legally complex, especially when dealing with an expatriate workforce containing many different nationalities.
In addition to our recruitment expertise, NES Fircroft offers industry-leading contractor mobility support services, including orchestrating their travel needs and comprehensive insurances, and delivering in-country orientations to ensure they are supported at every phase of a project.
The right leader can dramatically alter your company’s growth and future innovation. A company’s culture is largely driven from the top down; hiring a new, critical member of your Board therefore is a pivotal and potentially risky time. Leaders must possess agility, courage and the tenacity to address complex management challenges that prevent companies from moving forward, whilst keeping stakeholders onside with shared corporate vision and values.
Leveraging our global talent pool, we’ll find C-Suite personnel with shared responsibility and purpose to innovate your Board and secure your succession planning.
