We’re retained as a long-term search partner for a leading offshore wind developer with headquarters in London. Its growing offshore wind portfolio includes fixed-bottom and floating projects across Germany, France and the UK.
We’ve delivered a series of critical senior appointments that have been a key enabler for our client’s expansion, including its Chief Investment Officer, Chief Technical Officer, Commercial Manager and Legal Counsel. Our successful delivery of the CIO role led to our building out the full investment team, a project that we’ve partnered successfully on since 2019.
Our global reach and deep industry expertise enables us to source and attract exceptional candidates – and in this example, entire teams – from offshore wind and adjacent industries, in turn supporting our clients as they grow into major industry players.
Taylor Hopkinson is a preferred supplier for all contract personnel at one of Taiwan’s biggest offshore wind farms. We’ve placed over 90 local and ex-pat experts across all project packages, ranging from office staff in Taipei, site staff at factories and fabrication yards, and personnel along the onshore cable route and across Asia, including Indonesia, South Korea and Vietnam.
We also placed candidates in roles ranging from UXO Surveyors to HSE Advisors. Our turnkey admin service took care of all necessary work permits and visas, marine air fares and quarantine hotels, while we also supported multiple international relocations and mobilisation of contractors to Taiwan, Indonesia and South Korea.
We’ve received outstanding feedback from our client and successful candidates on these vital hires in what is a competitive market.
As preferred supplier to an 800MW+ wind farm in development off the US East Coast, we’ve identified and attracted over 25 key permanent and contract roles to drive the project’s progress.
With our Boston office placed directly at the heart of the development, we’ve sourced and delivered exceptional candidates into senior roles like Technical Director, Permitting Director and Marine Science Manager, technical positions like Senior Project Engineer and Wind Turbine Engineer, and essential support and marketing communications staff including Governance Manager, Document Controllers and Website Designer. Our work has enabled the project to continue its development and build a profile as one of the US’ pioneering offshore wind projects.
We’ve always received good service from Taylor Hopkinson: we’ve developed a collaborative working relationship together.
