Recruitment Solutions and Engineering Jobs in Boston and Massachusetts
We provide technical staff to the North East’s growing offshore wind sector
Bolstering our existing presence on the East Coast of the USA, our Boston office is the latest addition to the large NES Fircroft North American office network, and demonstrates our continued prowess in recruitment across the Power and Renewable Energy sectors.
Our Boston operation specializes in providing recruitment services and job opportunities to the offshore wind market which continues to thrive as investment remains pouring in.
Offshore Wind Recruitment for the North East Coast
NES Fircroft has been operating in the USA for over 25 years and already supports several key renewable energy projects across the wind and solar industries.
We pride ourselves on providing local support to businesses and job seekers, and understand that reliability, consistency, and proximity are paramount in building long-term relationships; establishing a local physical presence in Boston was therefore a logical next step in strengthening our service. Our Chicago, Ontario, Philadelphia and West Virginia presence in conjunction with our Boston office provides several local connection points to the growing hub of offshore energy projects in the North East.
Unrivalled access to offshore wind talent
We are a proud member of the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and have a wealth of experience in staffing major offshore wind projects across the planet.
Our global office network exceeds 45 countries - this set-up is complemented by our vast offshore wind project portfolio means that we offer a pre-qualified offshore wind talent pipeline and can source and mobilize experienced personnel from other geographies, such as Europe, into the USA to help kick-start and oversee your project. Our assignment support, compliance and legal teams collaborate to ensure that personnel are mobilized efficiently and compliantly. Through our ample experience and commitment to the sector, we have already secured our status as a workforce supplier to 4 of the biggest offshore wind farms currently in development in the USA.
During 50+ years of global operation we have built and nurtured an extensive engineering and talent candidate database, which has evolved in tandem with the diversifying energy industry. While many of our candidates have had prior experience directly in the offshore wind sector, we are also able to locate and secure candidates from other energy fields which offer transferable skills, such as offshore oil and gas engineers.
Our onboarding process ensures that all company and region-specific compliance testing and training is complete prior to a contractor commencing an assignment. We have a diligent qualification process in place that helps our clients comply with the Department of Labor requirements for FLSA ensuring correct classifications of EXEMPT and NON-EXEMPT worker status. For independent 1099 contractors NESF also follows a structure qualification process to ensure correct worker status for all contractors.

The offshore wind sector in North East America is experiencing a huge push for local personnel, and our competitors are not local to the area. Our recruitment teams actively network and have built close working relationships with some of the biggest names in the industry. Our affiliation with unions further increases our project access for exclusive job opportunities.
As one of the world’s most competitive renewable energy sources, and as a newer entrant on the energy scene, the offshore wind sector often looks to other established energy industries, such as offshore oil and gas, to leverage the skillsets of experienced workers.

We’ve supported countless contractors in transitioning across to our management so they can realize the benefits of our marketing-leading service and rest assured that we’ve got all logistics taken care of.
