Taylor Hopkinson’s presence in East Asia’s offshore wind sector is growing with the addition of Joshua Whitaker, our new Head of Recruitment for South Korea.
Taylor Hopkinson's team of renewable energy recruitment experts in Seoul, South Korea, celebrates its first anniversary.

Joshua joins us with nine years of global recruitment experience in the renewables, traditional energy, infrastructure, chemical and transport industries, having worked across the UK, Qatar and Korea.

With an impressive background in delivering permanent specialists across Asia and the Middle East, Joshua will lead the expansion of our APAC team into South Korea’s thriving offshore wind market.

Building our presence in South Korea’s offshore wind sector

“I’m delighted to join the world-leading team at Taylor Hopkinson,” says Joshua, who is based in the South Korean capital Seoul. “South Korea’s renewables targets are among the most ambitious in the region – as the focal point for our business in Korea, I’m looking forward to building the team here, delivering experienced specialists for our clients, and helping them benefit from the range of solutions we offer.

Joining forces with Brunel gives us the capability to support on contract hire, permanent recruitment, payroll solutions, recruitment process outsourcing and executive search. With the enormous potential we see in Korea’s offshore wind sector, we’re going to be super-busy and I can’t wait to drive it forward.”

“We’re really excited that Joshua has chosen to take the next step in his career at Taylor Hopkinson,” says Carl Blundon, our APAC Director. “South Korea’s offshore wind sector is set to grow massively in the coming decade, so gaining dedicated in-country resource has been key to our future plans. We’re looking forward to working with Joshua, his new team and our Brunel colleagues to deliver the market-leading solutions that we’re known for, both in Korea and across the region.”
