Recruitment Consultant, Melbourne

  • Full-time


Taylor Hopkinson is a dedicated renewables recruitment specialist and a trusted partner to the world’s green energy leaders. In December 2021, we joined forces with Brunel International N.V., expanding our global footprint to more than 100 offices across 40 countries and unlocking a range of opportunities to join our rapidly expanding, award-winning team.


The renewable energy sector is forecast to provide up to 43m jobs globally by 2050. Its growth will unlock unprecedented demand to secure the most experienced teams to develop renewable energy projects worldwide. Australia is set for accelerated growth. The Government recently announced plans to fast-track multi-billion-dollar renewable energy projects to reach its target of reducing carbon emissions by 43% by 2030. Solar is currently Australia’s largest source of green power. However, a recent Government pledge commits to driving the “rapid” development of the offshore wind industry in the state of Victoria.

We are looking for a Recruitment Consultant to consistently develop existing & new candidate networks and client relationships, work in specialist market verticals to become the go-to individual and subject matter expert within your chosen markets and make a meaningful impact on your career, your team and more widely on the transition to renewable energy.
