Introduction to Energy Commodity Recruitment

Imperium’s Energy exposure is as diverse as the products themselves.  Our recruitment consultants feel at home deep within the international bunker markets as much as they do in the intraday power trading space. We are well positioned, through our excellent network and ability to engage with passive candidates across the market, to undertake hiring assignments with energy traders, producers and brokers globally.

Our Energy consultants have a solid understanding of trading, operations, analyst, risk management, hedging and sales staff in oil, gas, power, renewables, bunkers and NGL/LNG. It has been no secret that the energy market is some way off from its glory days and many companies are restructuring their approach to an ever changing market.

Our consultants have been involved in the launch of new light ends sales offices in Europe, opened offices with international bunker traders and assisted with restructuring projects in the US for a leading energy sales firm. We believe in mutual trust and the need for a true understanding of the markets, growth plans and risk factors of our clients for sensitive projects like these and endeavour to offer a variety of options, working closely to match our approach to any changes as the project progresses.

Our energy consultants are on hand to discuss your business and where we may be able to assist in the next step for your team.

We operate a market leading network of bunker / marine fuel traders, operators and brokers globally and have close relationships with bunker trading companies across Europe, APAC, the Middle East and USA.  To learn more about our current bunker opportunities click here
