See why people love working with Climate17.

“I had the pleasure of Climate17 representing me recently. As well as being passionate and knowledgeable about the renewables industry, I found them to be extremely professional and responsive, providing valuable support and keeping me informed throughout the entire process – nothing was too much trouble! I would highly recommend their skills.”

“Having worked with Climate17 over the past 12 months, I can honestly say they have brought a refreshing approach and personal style to what can often be a challenging recruitment environment. This has been hugely welcomed, not only by the HR team, but hiring managers and senior management alike. Climate17 have been proactive, friendly, extremely helpful and always go the extra mile. They also work with a high level of accuracy and attention to detail. They have made my life easier on numerous occasions for which I can’t thank them enough and I look forward to continuing to work together.”

“Climate17’s help was essential in finding me a new role. They proactively targeted specific companies that we both believed were ideal for my professional development and managed to get me interviews with them. Their positive approach proved very efficient and allowed me to get job offers in a relatively short amount of time. I would definitely go back to Climate17 for my next role.”

“We work with Climate17 to help us with our requirements in Infrastructure and Energy Surveying. They have helped us fill multiple positions over the past 18 months, from Senior Surveyor to Partner level. Climate17 are able to find and attract hard to find people to meet our growing needs.”

“Climate17 have become our recruiter of choice over the past 12 months. They have managed to find us some really good people in a tough and competitive market. ”

“Andy successfully managed to place me in an incredible organisation which was the perfect fit for my career and all in the height of a global pandemic. I can’t recommend him enough, extremely professional, driven, approachable and reliable throughout the whole process.”

“Working with Climate17 to help us build our team has been straightforward. Andy’s personable approach and clear understanding of our brief fits with our own culture enabling him to fully understand not just our immediate recruitment needs, but our ethos and long-term vision.  He has helped us start to grow our already burgeoning services in the environment sector, and delivered a thorough, consultative service throughout. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Andy and Climate17, and would recommend them to any environmental consultancy.”
