The power of people

Who we are

We make a difference to the energy industry and the climate. 

How? We prevent key talent from moving away from the industry by understanding how their prized skills can be best utilised to help the energy industry create a reduced carbon and ultimately more sustainable future.

We know the industry and technology environment inside out, enabling us to solve clients' problems by providing people with the skills and attitudes that set them apart from the rest of the crowd.

Our expertise encompasses:

  • Sustaining Oil & Gas needs
  • Transitioning Oil & Gas to Sustainable Energy
  • Transforming Sustainable Energy growth

Tenure & Knowledge

We have worked alongside many of our clients and candidates for the last 30 years at both a technical and management level. From being out in the field ourselves, we've got an insider's knowledge about the industry's needs and nuances.

We are backed by James Caan CBE, and as a part of the RE group we have unprecedented access to talent resource pools across the wide spectrum of technical disciplines the energy sector requires.

But, having breadth across energy disciplines does not mean our technical knowledge is shallow. At Williams Munroe Energy we have delivered technical projects with you, and even set industry records with you, as the technology and the energy mix has evolved over the last three decades

Agility & Innovation

Like the energy industry we operate a lean six sigma approach. We hate process waste, we operate globally with agility, engage with integrity, and use technology and innovation to our and your advantage.

We understand the volatility of the energy world and constant change is a given, we are highly flexible and here for you 24/7 - 365 days a year.

We know the economics need to stack up for you. We provide people solutions through a variety of alternative business models to ensure quality, speed and cost are in perfect harmony.

We are open to alternative and disruptive business models which create a mutual win/win for our clients and candidates.

Human touch

We do what we say we will do ! Our mission is ensuring the team we provide gets the job done right, first time, on time and in budget. We use maximise the use of technology and innovation to improve our service quality to our client base, and ensure candidate management is quick and effective.

But this does not come at the cost of low human interaction. On the contrary, it is because of our industry leading innovation and best practice that we have more time to make the match, solve the problem, and maximise face time with our talented candidate pool, and client’s teams.

We are empathetic, open and trustworthy - many of our candidates and clients know us from working in the field with them, and they trust that we'll have their backs at every stage of the process - no matter how difficult the circumstances.
