No-nonsense recruitment
No-nonsense recruitment
Experience you can rely on

When it comes to recruitment, we focus solely on what we know: the energy sector.

About us

Expertise an inch wide, but a mile deep.

You can't be experts in everything. That's why we decided to stick to what we know best, rather than broadening our remit. And what we know best is the energy sector.

One of the few independent and truly-specialist agencies servicing the sector, we focus on offering staffing and personnel management support along with strategic consultancy to brands across the industry.

Our core team has over 60 years' experience in the industry, working both candidate and client side. Our industry knowledge, enviable contact network and no-nonsense approach has earned us a reputation amongst clients for being able to deliver exceptional certified workers for any job — on or off-shore — even for rapid placements. No carrot dangling, we deliver what we say we will and get it right time and again.

With over 90% of our business comes from repeat clients or word of mouth referrals, we must be doing something right.

The agency we wish we'd had.

Altitude was borne out of our frustration with the lack of service, respect and delivery we experienced from agencies when we were working both candidate and client-side in the industry.

We've built Altitude as the agency we wish we'd had.

We treat our workers with the respect they deserve — earning their trust and loyalty which in turn means we can offer clients rapid and reliable access to exceptional candidates.

Understanding the needs and demands of the sector, we've also built additional services into our client offering — from drug and alcohol testing, travel and logistics management and payroll management for contingent workers. This means our clients can leave the hassle to us and reclaim their time for more important tasks.

Our Team

  • Nik Aspden
    Tel:

    Nik looks after the legal and compliant aspects of Altitude's operations.

    With a lifetime's experience living the conditions, demands and requirements of the industry, Nik brings to the table a knowledge that can only be gained by living the game.

    Seeing first-hand the difference our work makes to clients and candidates, Nik ensures Altitude stays focused and true to why we set up shop in the first place: To be the agency that actually gives a damn — that gets it right and treats people right, every single time.

  • Emily Aspden (CertRP, MIRP)
    Tel:

    Emily puts in her all to make sure all our clients and candidates are happy.

    Supporting the rest of the operations team, Emily's constantly reviewing our systems to ensure we keep offering the best possible support and service. With a background in corporate hospitality, a people-focus and can-do attitude has been drilled into Emily for years and she brings both of these qualities to the Altitude team in buckets.

    Described by candidates as "a breath of fresh air for the offshore industry", Emily's biggest motivator is keeping good people in good work — it doesn't get much better than that.

  • Carole Rogers
    Tel:

    Carole manages and processes payroll for our Offshore and Onshore Contractors.

    It's down to her hard work — keeping on top of hours worked, holidays and invoices received — that we're able to offer weekly payments to contingent workers, ensuring processes are always strictly adhered to.

    Carole's extensive payroll experience includes familiarisation with NAECI and a good all round knowledge of Inland Revenue processes, with 14 years experience working in the Nuclear Sector.

    A big believer in treating everyone how you wish to be treated yourself, Carole's a favourite amongst many of our candidates who she's helped along the way.

  • Kate Moran (CertRP)
    Tel:

    Kate's our operations team lead, in charge of supervising all contracts through to completion and overseeing all personnel movement.

    Amongst ourselves, we think of Kate as our Certified Unicorn Finder. She has an uncanny eye for detail, is logistically minded and can think outside the box to find and fit the right piece of any work scope puzzle together. As a result, Kate has an unparalleled a knack for finding the balance between fulfilling client requirements and keeping candidates happy.

    Consistently exceeding expectations, Kate's built a reputation for always meeting deadlines and is quoted by clients and candidates alike as providing a top-notch service. (She might have put it a bit milder herself, but we're allowed to brag).

  • Corey Aspden (CertRP)
    Tel:

    Corey' liaises with both Clients and Job seekers to find the best potential match for both, ensuring that the best candidates are offered the best opportunities with companies that will treat them right.

    Corey's Altitude's very own double threat: he has a certification in Recruitment Practice alongside experience working in the Engineering Sector and in trade enviroments. His ability to see both sides of the coin means he's able to work to find solutions that have both our clients and candidates' best interests at heart so everyone comes out on top.

    Corey's genuine care for getting candidates in the right jobs shines through in their feedback — saying time and again that we're different to other agencies they've dealt with before: caring, considerate and always on the end of the phone — day or night — keeping everyone up to date and in the loop.
