Environmental & Industrial sector Executive Search Recruitment

Senior leaders with expertise in Environmental & Industrial verticals.

Introduction

Industry and the environment increasingly go hand in hand in the 21st century, with organisations expected to have clear carbon neutrality commitments which are often referred to as simply 'zero carbon'.

When recruiting for senior leaders with expertise in Environmental & Industrial verticals, you need experienced and capable candidates who not only understand the core operations of the business, but are also able to function as strategists, to withstand the considerable pressures of the current climate and, where appropriate, to steer your organisation in the right direction.

Spencer Riley work with talented candidates all over the world, with a particular focus on the UK, Europe, and North America. We will reach out to executives no matter where they are located, to bring your business the credentials and capabilities you need to thrive.

Executive Recruitment for Environmental & Industrial Roles

We can recruit into a wide range of Environmental & Industrial disciplines, including:

  • Chemical Cleaning
  • Energy from Waste
  • Hazardous Waste Management
  • Mechanical Industrial Services
  • Onsite Industrial Services
  • Recycling
  • Remediation
  • Tank Cleaning and Vacuuming
  • Turnaround and Shutdown Management
  • Total Waste Management
  • Waste Water Services

Where some of these were once a formality, in recent years Environmental roles have become high-stakes in many sectors, with the risk of negative brand perception and substantial financial penalties from regulators and environmental agencies if you fail.

At the same time, Industrial roles carry similar responsibilities, whether due to your use of resources, the carbon footprint associated with your energy consumption, or the risk of polluting the natural environment when disposing of your waste.

Planning for Future Recruitment with RPO

RPO is our Recruitment Process Outsourcing service, and it's a way for you to meet ongoing Environmental & Industrial recruitment needs without starting from scratch every time.

Instead of creating a completely new recruitment campaign every time you have a position to fill, just let us know when you need new talent and we'll get to work. As an ongoing relationship, this puts us in an even better position to understand what your organisation needs and to deliver it even faster.

With Spencer Riley RPO, you benefit from the fastest time to hire and the greatest recruitment cost efficiencies overall, without compromising on the high level of service you receive in every hiring process.

As always, we can liaise with your hiring manager, executives/directors and any key stakeholders, in order to establish some clear KPIs for your Environmental & Industrial recruitment campaign, so that our deliverables are also measurable.
