Energy & Utilities

“Even in urban areas, energy suppliers need to constantly remain appealing for new employees, since they are competing on the job market against well-known corporations from other sectors. For managers, in particular, this appeal results from the combination of flexible working time models with the offer of clear scope for creativity”.

When it comes to filling management positions, established energy suppliers still win people over due to traditional strengths such as regional focus and stability. However, both the industry and job profiles are changing rapidly. With the support of LAB’s Energy & Utilities practice, you can strengthen your company with TOP managers and specialised experts who know the changing energy markets and are equally familiar with regulation and digitisation.

Top management human resources consultancy for the energy & utilities industry

With its Energy & Utilities practice, LAB & Company ranks among the top five executive search consultancies in the energy industry in Germany and Austria. We fill key positions that drive companies forward in traditional industrial areas such as the expansion of renewable energies or the transition from utility companies to energy services providers. However, we also find the right teams for “Smart Networks” – for example, specialists for network security, innovations, data analytics, predictive maintenance or storage technologies.

Our clients include municipal utilities and energy suppliers of all sizes as well as their shareholdings and service providers in the energy sector throughout Europe. Due to numerous placements of managing directors and board members for the energy industry, we also have extensive experience in advising politically diverse committees and supervisory boards.
