Spencer Ogden, the recruiter of choice for the energy sector, today announces the launch of its new Energy Trading and Energy Finance division. The new service means that the agency can now offer its clients a recruitment service covering the entire energy life-cycle, from commodity traders and financial analysts through to power generation and distribution. The Energy Finance and Trading team will be based at the recruiters' London office and will be headed by energy and commodities specialist, Dave Vinton.


Vinton has an impressive track record in building successful teams within the energy sector; he developed his skills at Huxley Associates, where he helped build the energy recruitment division from scratch to turn over £1million in 18 months. He brings this experience to Spencer Ogden, where he has already hand-picked five top energy recruiters from across the industry: "One of the things that makes Spencer Ogden unique is the fact that it recruits exclusively for the energy sector, and therefore intimately understands the fundamentals of business in the sector," he comments.


"As opposed to a more general agency, where energy recruitment might be an afterthought or ‘added extra', everyone here knows their particular market inside-out.  Recruiters across all teams share market information, meaning that we can put forward a much stronger proposition to clients." 


David Spencer-Percival, Spencer Ogden co-Founder and CEO (right), comments: "We are delighted to be able to offer our clients a full, end-to-end recruitment service.  We pride ourselves on our specialist knowledge of the energy sector, and the launch of the energy trading and finance division means that we can now approach a client and recruit for almost every role in their organisation; as far as the world's energy firms are concerned, we are effectively a ‘one-stop shop' for all their staffing requirements."


Vinton adds: "We have ambitious plans to expand the energy trading and finance team, and aim to have 15 people on the team in 12 months' time; this would be an excellent opportunity for someone handling energy clients at a more general agency, who would like to specialise in a particular sector."
