​Akira Energy and The Green Recruitment Company Announce Strategic Joint Venture Partnership

Amsterdam, May 2024 – Akira Energy, a renowned Dutch-based energy recruitment firm, has entered into a strategic joint venture with The Green Recruitment Company (TGRC), a global workforce solutions leader. The collaboration brings together Akira Energy founders Hans Slootweg and Bobby Roosien with TGRC’s experienced team led by Nic Yates and Sarah Solari.

The new partnership is founded on the principle of delivering the highest level of service to clients, customers, and candidates. This venture allows Akira Energy to leverage TGRC’s extensive global support functions, enhancing their ability to service large-scale projects under a unified brand. This collaboration enables the sharing of opportunities that might otherwise be lost to competition and supports clients with their expertise in the complex global offshore renewables labour market.

Addressing the Talent Shortage in the Green Energy Sector
