Spencer Ogden appoints new development director

Spencer Ogden has appointed Simon Taylor to the position of development director. In his new role, Taylor will be responsible for developing the energy recruitment agency's headcount growth strategy, with a particular focus on sourcing key personnel to manage its offices across the EMEA region.

Taylor has over 13 years' experience in the graduate and experienced recruitment-to-recruitment markets, and has worked with Spencer Ogden in sourcing the best candidates since the company launched in 2010. In 2001 Taylor founded Drummond Recruitment where he was managing director until his move to Spencer Ogden.

Speaking of his new role, Taylor comments: “I am thrilled to join Spencer Ogden at such an exciting time for the business. Having worked closely with the company since it started, I have watched the business grow from strength to strength and I look forward to helping expand it even further to become the world’s largest and most profitable energy recruitment company.”

David Spencer-Percival, Spencer Ogden CEO, says: “With the recent expansion of our London and Hong Kong offices, we now employ over 250 people, but we plan to double this number over the next two years. Simon is a leading rec-to-rec specialist and it was vital to bring in someone with his experience to make sure that Spencer Ogden's aggressive global growth strategy is achieved.”

Taylor’s initial focus will be to source key personnel for the new offices in Germany and Brazil, and to manage the growth of the London office following its recent expansion.

“Spencer Ogden is in a very strong position to drive business growth, and will continue to recruit the best personnel to our expanding international workforce. With plans to open three new offices this year and double the head count by 2015, it’s going to be a busy start to my time with the company, but I wouldn’t expect anything less!” Taylor concludes.

Since 2010, Spencer Ogden has opened ten offices globally in London, Houston, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Dubai, Cape Town, Calgary, Singapore and Hong Kong, as well as a luxury office in Ibiza for top performers.
