Candidates in the energy sector will now be able to enjoy a smoother, more efficient hiring process, thanks to the launch of Spencer Ogden’s new fully integrated website and new game app.

Having recently expanded into three new sectors – drilling, marine and finance – the new website makes Spencer Ogden’s services easier to navigate. It now encompasses nine individual sector sites, an internal recruitment site and a group site, helping candidates to access relevant information quickly and easily.

With a mobile, technologically aware workforce spanning the entire globe, Spencer Ogden has developed a solution that seamlessly integrates the website, mobile site and jobs app. The new system allows users to access their account, upload a CV, shortlist jobs and set job alerts across any device all synchronised with a single login.

The site has been developed to be optimised for any device using a mixture of responsive and adaptive technology. Users will now have access to the best possible experience regardless of the device they are using.

Thea new game app is downloadable on iTunes and gives players the chance to take control of planes, helicopters, boats and trucks navigating around energy projects across the world. From offshore oil rigs in the North Sea to the latest power generation plants in Dubai, the aim is to maximize output by delivering manpower and equipment. As of yet, it’s unclear whether candidates’ game scores will affect their hirability.

David Spencer-Percival, CEO of Spencer Ogden, said: “This latest development of our tech capabilities will help to underpin our operations globally. In a candidate-led market, it is vital that we continue to provide market-leading services and the integration of our various platforms will ensure that we can.

“The game app is good fun and highlights our mission to do great work and have fun doing it – it has encouraged a bit of competition internally! The feedback so far has been great and hopefully it will help to educate people on the breadth that a career in the energy sector can offer.”

During 2014, Spencer Ogden won International Growth Business of the Year Award at the National Business Awards in November, was 12th in the Sunday Times / Virgin Fastrack100 and was also awarded The Queen’s Award for Enterprise. In 2013, David Spencer-Percival was named Entrepreneur of the Year at the National Business Awards. Since its launch five years ago, the company has placed more than 9,000 candidates in positions around the world in eight different sectors of the energy industry.
