Hydrogen rebrands Darwin Park, its specialist oil & gas and power recruitment business

On September 20th, Darwin Park will take on the name of its parent company and rebrand to Hydrogen taking further steps to deliver against its global practice led strategy.

DarwinParkis an award winning specialist global recruitment business supporting both the oil & gas and power industries. Started in 2008, with a team of just five people, the business has now grown substantially with 50 consultants in six global office locations, placing contract and permanent sector specialists across Europe, Middle East, Asia and Australia.
Darwin Park is part of the Hydrogen Group, which places exceptionally hard to find candidates in over 70 countries. In 2008, Hydrogen set out its Vision to transform the business from a UK-centric recruiter to a recognised global brand, structured around 10 specialist practices. As the final part of this transformation each of the individual brands within the Hydrogen Group, will be rebranding to Hydrogen over the next six months, with the technical & scientific brand Darwin Park leading the way on Thursday 20th September.

Hydrogen’s practice led strategy has seen the creation of 10 practices covering both technical & scientific and professional support services specialist areas, supported by global practice leaders. The rebrand to Hydrogen, as well as the implementation of a cloud based CRM system, using leading edge technology, facilitates the sharing of information across the entire business, enabling Hydrogen to operate as practices instead of individual areas.

Tim Smeaton, Hydrogen’s CEO said "By operating as joined up practices, we can differentiate ourselves from the local competition and disparate global players."

Each consultant continues to provide specialist knowledge, but is now supported by a network of experts across their six worldwide offices, providing both clients with global visibility of the best candidates and candidates with worldwide opportunities. Meaning the best specialist candidates from around the world are linked with world class clients.

Commenting on the rebrand of Darwin Park, Rory Ferguson, Director, Oil & Gas Practice at Hydrogen said, “Over the last five years our oil & gas and power practice markets have rapidly expanded to meet client demand. When we first set up Darwin Park we were predominantly UK based, however by now operating as a joined up global practice our offering is worldwide.”

“This is an exciting development for us. Becoming more widely recognised as Hydrogen will help our clients, wherever they are in the world, access a wider, global pool of talent, whilst our candidates have more international opportunities.” said Emma Halls, Global Power Practice Leader.

DarwinParkwill be the first brand within the Group to move across to Hydrogen, and will be followed by Hydrogen’s other brands: Project Partners, HR Professionals, Law Professionals and Finance Professionals, in H1 2013.
