Environmental

Renewables is a new high-growth sector. Whilst there are some established players, it is a sector largely dominated by start-ups, new entrants and new technologies. It is also a field where there are relatively few experienced practitioners and therefore lateral thinking is required in order to bring new executive talent in to the environmental sector with transferable skills from other related sectors.

With the reduction of carbon emissions now established as a common theme, our executive search and executive recruitment work in this sector covers a number of areas including energy conservation, energy/carbon trading, biofuels production and various power generation technologies including wind, wave, biomass, fuel cells and nuclear.

Waste Management

Over recent years there has clearly been an influx of environmental and waste directives from Europe, with the emphasis thus far on areas such as recycling, high technology incineration and landfill management. With the environmental industry concentrating on the development of increased sustainability in waste management practices, there is a greater emphasis on companies to operate to higher standards of professionalism. This has led to the spotlight focusing on regulation, policy, research and development, which in turn has generated a demand to recruit suitably qualified professionals.

Novo Executive Search and Selection have an experienced team of Executive Search Consultants that have worked on a wide range of executive recruitment for the Senior Manager and Director level assignments in this marketplace, so we are very well placed to assist businesses with their executive recruitment and strategic level requirements.

Novo's Environmental industry experts can help you identify & attract your next exceptional executive.
