Boost from renewable energy
Eden Scott fee income ‘at level of oil and gas boom’
The company said turnover was up 13% to £13.5m recruitment in oil and gas sector has largely been replaced by a strengthening renewable energy industry.
Significant contracts have been won to supply the Moray East and NnG Offshore wind farms supplementing the work already carried out on the Moray West, Vikinger, East Anglia One and Inchcape offshore wind farm projects.
The technology team has grown to meet the increasing demands of the data science, biotech and life sciences sectors. The introduction of an industrial division this year was another positive step, signalling the business’s intent to broaden its business from predominantly permanent recruitment.
The positive figures have coincided with a number of internal investments that have benefited the teams and their customers. There was a sizeable investment in the latest recruitment CRM software.
A number of consultants enjoyed the reward of a paid sabbatical, awarded for both five and ten years of service.
Successful delivery on tenders won during the year complemented a strong existing client base.
Co-founder Michelle Lownie, pictured, said: “In Eden Scott’s fifteenth year we are proud that our commitment to our team and customers is as strong today as it was when we started. We’ve always challenged the industry to set a higher standard in terms of customer service and staff recognition, so it’s reassuring when our results show that a good, well-run businesses can prosper when they focus on their people.
“Returning to the fee levels experienced during the height of the oil and gas market in Aberdeen is providing us with a great platform to launch our ambitious five-year strategy.“
