CleanTech Recruitment

RWA has a keen interest in, and knowledge of, the CleanTech recruitment sector and partners with pioneering cleantech companies working in the areas of:

  • Clean Energy
  • Smart Buildings
  • Energy Management
  • Smart Metering Systems
  • Air and Environmental Management
  • Smart Cities
  • cleantech Data Analytics
  • Renewable Energy

RWA is a little bit different and we think the candidates you are looking for are just a little bit different too. We know that quite apart from looking for a seriously skilled Engineer, Developer, Data Scientist, Project Manager, Technical Consultant or Senior Executive, in addition, every candidate must share your passion for clean technology, be highly motivated self-starters and well-rounded people.

This is a growing sector. To meet the challenges of urbanisation, scarce resources, climate change, energy security and a steadily growing global population, the cleantech sector will need to recruit smart people.  And that’s exactly what RWA has been engaged in since 1987.

World Class Clients

Typical of our clients in the cleantech field is PassivSystems, a Global cleantech 100 company and Red Herring Global Finalist with one of the most technologically advanced and affordable Home Energy Management Systems in the world.

Richard Wheeler

Richard Wheeler is a leading recruiter with 30 years’ experience. He knows how to identify excellent hires, how to sell the benefits of working for a cleantech company and how to talk to other humans. Crucially, he also knows the industry inside out.

Here at RWA all things cleantech have moved to the next level, quite literally.  Richard lives in an old watermill which he is in the process of restoring and converting from its original raison-d’etre - that of harnessing the power of water for grinding flour - to a hydro electric power scheme providing electricity for the house.  At the time of writing the 9 foot undershot wheel has been duly restored with all the necessary turbine wheels/drives in place; just the small matter of the hydro….and clearing several hundred yards of leat!

CleanTech Recruitment Testimonials

Richard Wheeler Associates provide us with a steady stream of high quality candidates – which means we can fill our vacancies in a timely fashion, and we don’t have to deal with any other agency!

Migration Advisory Committee Report Implications For Tech Talent

A recent report ‘EEA Migration in the UK’ published by the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) recommended that there should be no preferential access to the UK for EU citizens post Brexit.

The report was commissioned to provide evidence for the design of a new migration system and found that there is evidence that immigration has, on average, a positive impact on productivity; some evidence that this impact is larger for high-skilled migrants than lower-skilled migrants and that high-skilled immigrants increase innovation.

CleanTech Momentum – The Growth Of Digital

BP has announced plans to invest US$500 million (£358.5 million) in low carbon businesses each year as it looks to further embrace the low carbon transition.

The oil and gas giant has just reported its 2017 financial performance - a full year underlying profit of US$6.2 billion - allowing the firm to continue with its five-year strategic plan to embrace the energy transition.  The investment commitment mirrors Shell’s recent plans to invest as much as US$2 billion per year in low carbon development.

AI’s Impact on UK Jobs In The Future #2

The CBI is calling on the government to establish a joint commission tasked with examining the impact of AI on people and jobs across all sectors of the UK economy.

Based on research it conducted into the way that technology is changing the way we live and work, the CBI said recently that it had identified three technologies - AI, Blockchain and the Internet of Things - that are set to move from the fringes to the mainstream within the next five years.

However, it also found, that only a third of businesses currently have the skills and capabilities needed to adopt AI technologies, and that more needs to be done to help prepare those companies for the future.

UK Tech Start-up Landscape - Autumn 2017

Not only has the decision to leave the European Union not dented London’s start-up scene, it seems to have actually widened its lead as Europe’s leading fundraising destination.

According to a report from CB Insights, U.K. start-ups attracted $3.02 billion in venture capital in the third quarter. That’s a bit below the peak reached in Q4 2016, when U.K. start-ups attracted $3.5 billion.  But it’s more than triple the amount raised one year ago, and the third straight quarter-over-quarter increase.  The positive results were driven by six companies that raised rounds larger than $100 million in the quarter.
