A2O People

People are fundamental to the success of every business

Whether it is recruiting new talent into your organisation or developing and engaging with your employees, A2O People can help.


We specialise in the utility and construction industries helping our clients source engineering and construction candidates for permanent, contract and temporary positions including:

  • Engineers (Mechanical, Electrical, Civil) 
  • CAD Designers
  • Project & Programme Managers / Directors
  • Commercial / Cost / Contracts Managers / Quantity Surveyors 
  • Project Planners
  • Construction / Site / Commissioning / Managers / Supervisors
  • Procurement, Buyers, Material Controllers, Expeditors
  • Health & Safety Personnel
  • Quality Assurance / Quality Control Engineers
  • Project Administrators / Document Controllers
  • Operations & Maintenance staff
  • Mechanical & Electrical Supervisors / Installers
  • Coded Welders / Scaffolders
  • Skilled Labour / Trades

We take the time to understand the goals, culture and staffing needs of your business, and the competency profile of each position, to ensure that we source candidates that are a good fit. While we are quite prepared to spend as long as it takes looking for the right person, we understand that we will be required to work within unavoidably tight deadlines and must be able to respond and operate with an urgency that matches that of our client.

Key differentiators of our recruitment process include:

  • Having worked in senior positions in the energy and water sectors we understand the role specifications and the cultural fit requirements of the industry.
  • We have extensive networks in the utility and construction sectors that gives our clients a competitive advantage in sourcing the hard to find candidates that can not be found through your own search efforts. 
  • We focus on attracting passive candidates – an increasingly important factor as the energy / nuclear industry looks to source talent form other regulated sectors. 
  • We help clients achieve diversity goals sourcing candidates who employers may consider are being under-represented in the workforce.
  • We help our clients meet their goals of local employment and community outreach by integrating local services from the communities most impacted by their activities.
  • We provide services that link recruitment and retention.

Because A2O People offer a broad range of HR services we are not tied to ‘recruitment’ being the only answer to a resourcing problem. This enables us to offer unbiased resourcing advice to clients where the best solution may be to find ways to work differently with existing employees.

We offer realistic and flexible pricing models backed up by a placement guarantee, based on the fact that our success wholly depends on the success of our clients.

HR Consultancy Services

A2O People was founded on the premise that the utility industry has its own context and dynamics that need to be understood in order to provide effective solutions in the areas of recruitment, engagement, collaboration, change management, well-being and people development. While many initiatives may be effective in the short-term their sustainability is the true test of their effectiveness. Recruiting the best, establishing high levels of Engagement with employees and communities and Sustaining this commitment are becoming the fundamentals of good management. This is where A2O People can help utility and construction businesses to excel, providing a deeper and more diverse talent pool, supporting local communities, and unlocking the potential of your employees. For more information go to our consultancy services overview.

Diversity - Utility organisations recognise the need to employ a workforce that reflects the diversity of their customer base. A2O People have a particular capability in diversity recruitment partnering with utilities, consultant and contractor organisations to source suitably qualified women, disabled and ethnic minority candidates. We help our clients to achieve diversity and inclusiveness goals while reaping the benefits of diversity by securing scarce resources from the widest possible talent pool. For more information go to our Diversity Consulting page.


We believe that excellent customer service, shared goals and consistent standards build long-term partnerships. We tailor our services to meet our clients’ specific needs, recognising the unique nature of each client derived from its customers, markets, geography, culture and history.

Let us help your business to excel by hiring and retaining the best people.
