Manchester-based Nordex UK Ltd, the UK arm of the international wind turbine manufacturer Nordex Energy GmbH has responded to a rapid expansion of sales, operation and implementation of its on-shore wind farm systems over the last two years with a massive increase in its employee base.

The company is continually seeking skilled resources to support its business, now with 75 permanent staff in the UK alone.
Claus Poulsen, Managing Director, Nordex UK Ltd, commented: “Our rapid growth has lead us to use the services of recruitment consultants to identify individuals with the niche skills to join our team. “ATA Selection has become a key partner in the search and selection of maintenance engineers, project and site managers and technical and back office staff.

“Our reputation is a key asset and we need high quality candidates to support our strategic aims. Resourcing skilled staff is a major factor in our business development programme.

“ATA Selection has demonstrated a proactive willingness to work with Nordex through a thorough understanding of our company and its requirements and by investing a tangible commitment to our sector.”
Philip Cottam, Principal Consultant at ATA’s Manchester-based Energy Division, added: “The energy sector is one in which we have considerable expertise and over the last 18 months, we have placed 24 staff with Nordex and expect this number to increase further by the end this year.

“We are experiencing an exponential growth in the renewable energy sector – with wind being one of the key growth areas and expect this trend to continue.

“It is for this reason why we have established a dedicated division to service this growing market.”

Phil Cottam continued: “As part of our company ethos, we have developed a strong relationship with Nordex, based on an understanding of their business and a recognition of their exacting standards.

“Our role is to identify candidates that are the ‘best fit’ through a rigorous search and selection process, using tried and tested methods, matching our client’s needs with candidates’ career aspirations.

“Given that the renewable energy sector, in particular, is still an emerging market, the pool of talent who have direct experience is limited so if we have to look beyond that skill set we look for transferable skills that will fit the position in order to ensure that the right candidate is placed.”

ATA Selection’s process is equally thorough. Phil Cottam explained: “Once we receive an instruction from Nordex, we source the potential candidates, screen, interview a short list and only then pass CVs and arrange interviews for about 3 potential candidates for each role. Over the last 15 months, we have received about 34 vacancies placing 24 candidates (70%).

“The high retention rates that we achieve are a testament to the success of our process. We look forward to continuing to develop our relationship with Nordex over the long term.”

ATA Selection is one of the UK’s leading engineering, rail, technical sales, construction and renewable energy recruitment specialists and has a network of regional offices across the UK providing skilled permanent and contract workers of varying levels to companies ranging from SMEs to multinationals.
