Paul's bio

As the Associate Director for Search Energy and Outsourcing Solutions, I am responsible for the management of the sector in England and of outsourcing services across the business.

Having started my career in construction trades recruitment at a specialist trades and labour agency, I moved to Search 20 years ago building teams in the construction and industrial sectors. I then went on to develop a specialism within the industrial team that would become a standalone outsourcing offering, known as the Energy sector.

With our Energy specialism established over 11 years, we have built a 350 strong workforce that are employed to work as, or specialise in data collection, smart meter installations, field service engineers and installation technicians. Our client base consists of a number of both large blue chip organisations and SME’s, both of which demand delivering sizeable outsourcing projects within a short time frame.

If you would like support in recruiting for your next smart meter engineer or want to find out more about the outsourcing services we offer, get in touch today.

What people say about us

Gary Buchanan

“I thought my full time employment was over after getting made redundant. After applying to job after job, I saw the advert with Search, applied and then was taken through the process with ease.

I am now on an apprenticeship doing what I love and still pinch myself that I am on my way to a new and exciting career.”

​“I have enjoyed apprenticeship training for smart meter installation. Search has shown that they take people from all backgrounds, even a humble window cleaner. 

Travelling a long way for the best training available was worth it.  The training I now have has prepared me for most situations in the field.  I'm looking forward to getting faster and more experienced in this role.”

“I joined Search Energy earlier this year as a dual fuel smart meter apprentice and my journey began at Universal Skills Group where I trained for 18 weeks. During this time, I was Gas Safe and MOCOPA registered and was well prepared for when I went live out in the field.

I am now currently coming towards the end of the my apprenticeship and I am grateful Search Energy gave me this opportunity. I would personally recommend them as an employer, and I hope to stay with them for many years.”
