Global energy and infrastructure recruitment expert, Spencer Ogden, has expanded its APAC presence with a new office in Taiwan. Marking its 12th global office and sixth in the Asia Pacific region, this latest expansion follows on-going demand for its specialist talent services as the country strives to hit its clean energy targets. With the Taiwanese Government working towards a renewable energy target of 20 per cent of consumption by 2025, demand for recruitment solutions to support this goal is increasing, with offshore wind leading much of the resourcing needs.
As a specialist recruiter for the offshore wind sector and with over ten year’s experience supporting the specialism in Europe and four years working with clients in Taiwan remotely, Spencer Ogden has opened its Taiwanese office to drive recruitment needs on the ground.
“Taiwan could become the global leader in wind energy, and this is an exciting opportunity for everyone in the industry,” said Tom Reid, APAC regional director at Spencer Ogden. “However, the country is currently experiencing a skill shortage and the rapidly growing offshore wind industry is likely to result in the creation of over 20,000 new jobs by 2025.
“Finding suitable professionals is going to be critical and Spencer Ogden is one of the few agencies with a history of both international and local capability,” Reid notes. “Our teams have proven to be unstoppable in getting talent mobilised across the world into critical locations and clients will expect to continue to see the same level of service as we further expand into Taiwan. This is a highly exciting opportunity for Spencer Ogden and is one of many plans to expand our APAC presence.”
