Digital Transformation

Our digital, operations and asset management


Digitalisation is a key enabler of the global energy transition, unlocking efficiencies and driving better decision-making. 

Accelerating the rollout of digitalisation and technologies like machine learning and big data bring significant value over the lifetime of an offshore wind or green hydrogen project. The companies that harness these technologies will gain a competitive advantage – and by retaining top-tier engineers, analysts and innovators, can maintain their edge as the energy transition continues.

We work across the IT, digital and asset management fields to secure experienced, exceptional future leaders, and our long-term relationships with both clients and candidates give us unrivalled expertise in both renewables and the digital fields. Our researchers take a long-term view of the sector and forthcoming leasing rounds and opportunities, both on- and off-market. Because we work at the forefront of the sector and in the world’s emerging markets, partnering with us can catalyse your growth through leveraging our network and relationships to uncover new opportunities.
