Founded in 1998 with the aim of becoming a respected niche business, Oil Recruitment now has a team of 20 consultants, researchers and support staff.
Oil Recruitment's pedigree is firmly rooted in this industry. Our parent company began life as a coal wholesaler in the late 1800s before moving into oil trading, marketing and distribution. It was then a very natural move into oil, gas and energy recruitment.
Our MD, Nick Smith, is the great-grandson of Sir Albert Smith, the founder of our parent company. Nick launched Oil Recruitment in 1998. He started recruiting within the inland fuel distribution business before moving on to develop our activities within the energy trading markets.
In 2015, we opened an office in Geneva to better serve our Swiss clients and candidates. We also have a base in central London as well as our main offices in South Manchester.
We remain focused on developing strong networks and knowledge within our markets.
Our sister company Ashley & Dumville Publishing Ltd has produced Fuel Oil News, the leading trade journal for the UK fuel distribution market, since 1977.
