Energy Resourcing and Primat Recruitment are merging


Consolidating our two business lines into one

We are delighted to announce the exciting fusion of our two UK agency businesses, Primat Recruitment and Energy Resourcing.

This consolidation will combine our businesses in the UK to provide a more comprehensive service to our contractors and clients across all sectors as well as expand the Primat Recruitment blue-collar offering globally. Challenging market conditions have provided a great opportunity to consolidate our businesses into an agile, client and contractor focused company with a broader range of service offerings. In doing so, it will further strengthen our reputation as a leading recruitment agency.

Primat Recruitment has an experienced team of professionals serving a range of clients across the UK’s renewables, oil & gas, mining and petrochemicals sectors. The company is headquartered in Aberdeen, Scotland, and will be joining Energy Resourcing as part of our global business.

Ryan Hill, Managing Director Energy Resourcing, believes “The driver for these changes centre around providing opportunities, creating operating efficiencies, better aligning ourselves to the external market and building connectivity across the global Energy Resourcing footprint to share best practice.”

“It’s time to re-evaluate and change the perception around the services we offer. Our new operating model allows us to focus on our local clients and the global reach to do what we do best – build strong, collaborative partnerships and ways of working. It comes down to having a culture of continuous improvement in the way we work, the services and solutions we provide, and the value we bring to our clients. All of which support the high-performance culture we are building across the business.”

Primat Recruitment Director Ruth Cameron told us, “As part of the consolidation, I am excited to have taken on leadership of the combined UK business. This move allows us to capitalise on the best of what both businesses have to offer, build on our existing great relationships and drive external client growth.”

Echoing the same sentiments, Energy Resourcing Director Sean MacGloin, said “Having led the Energy Resourcing UK business for nearly 10 years, I am excited to now take on a role leading our Global Growth initiatives and managing our European business which presents material growth opportunities for Energy Resourcing.”

Our core purpose remains to provide technical recruitment and contractor management services to the oil and gas, renewable energy, and resource industries. All while aiming to balance the wellbeing of our staff, clients, and candidates with commercial realities as we fill jobs around the globe.


Our two businesses fit together perfectly:

  • We share the same values – Stronger Together, Life, Rise to the Challenge and Unlock Brilliance
  • Relationship management – we both hold relationships at our core and hugely value our contractor workforce and the relationships we have with them and our clients
  • Systems and technology – we have access to the latest technology in candidate database and payrolling, including the use of iCIMS, our global job search platform that intelligently matches candidates to their ideal job
  • Experience – across our combined business, we have a wealth of experience worldwide in major locations in Asia, Australia, Europe, the Middle East and North America


What does this mean for you?

During the consolidation period, there will be very little change in how we provide our services and support to you. You can expect the same level of commitment from our team as we become #StrongerTogether.

We intend to be operating as one business in the UK from 1 July 2021. We will continue to provide additional updates as we progress.
