Spencer Ogden Launches Mining Division

Spencer Ogden Launches Mining Division

Spencer Ogden has added a mining division to its portfolio in its drive to become the first fully end-to-end recruiter in the energy sector.

Since its launch in 2010, Spencer Ogden has become a leader in its sector with an annual &pound24 million annual turnover and a team of 104. Graeme Lingenfelder, the former MD of RGB Networks has been appointed as Head of Mining and will implement equally ambitious plans for the new division.

Spencer Ogden’s mining division is a logical lateral step to harness the synergy between natural resources and mining, and will be focused both on the UK market and on the globe’s mining hotspots including Australia, Canada, US, China and Mexico.

Lingenfelder comments: “The mining sector will face huge challenges in recruitment and retention over the next decade, not least because it will be feeling the long-term effects of the 90s global mining crisis which saw it fall out of fashion as an employer. In Canada, for example, 45 per cent of the workforce is due to retire by 2015.

“Whilst the mining sector may be experiencing a shrinking talent pool, there is no shortage of projects, with rapid expansion in certain commodities set to test operators even further, so introducing a talented, focused recruitment team to the sector we believe represents a significant opportunity for Spencer Ogden. We have ambitious plans for the new division which align perfectly with our ongoing commitment to the energy sector.”

David Spencer Percival, CEO, Spencer Ogden concludes: “We differentiate ourselves from our competitors through the breadth of specialist knowledge present in our recruiting team. All of our consultants have specialist knowledge of the fields in which they work, and this has been a major contributing factor in our success to date. It’s an approach which will underpin the development of our new mining division too, and with offices already established in the UK, USA and Middle East, it will allow us to further extend our global presence.”
