Digital Transformation within the energy sector

By Chris Batters and Will Parkhouse.

In the fast-paced energy industry, organisations are embracing digital transformation to drive sustainable change and revolutionise their operations. In two distinct case studies, we showcase our success in recruiting top technology-focused leaders who spearheaded transformative initiatives for Launchpad and NG Digital, ultimately shaping the future of their respective organisations.


Case Study 1: Launchpad’s Visionary Tech Venture

Launchpad, in partnership with BP, sought technology-focused leaders who could lead sustainable transformation and contribute to the creation and expansion of a visionary portfolio of digitally-driven enterprises. Our extensive search in the UK’s technology landscape resulted in successful hires for critical positions such as CTO and Head of Cyber. We addressed the challenge of effectively communicating Launchpad’s vision by developing a comprehensive briefing deck, emphasizing Launchpad’s commitment to supporting energy sector start-ups. This case study showcases our ability to attract top talent and foster a thriving ecosystem of innovative energy ventures.

Our recruitment efforts focused on streamlining the interviewing and job offer process, collaborating closely with the executive team. Additionally, we worked to align compensation with market trends to attract the best talent. This case study highlights our role in filling critical leadership positions, including Director of Product, Director of Software Engineering, and Head of Engineering, enabling NG Digital to foster a product-centric culture and excel in the digital landscape.
