“Renz has been incredibly helpful and knowledgeable when helping me with my next career move. I contacted Renz via LinkedIn and he immediately got in touch with me.  After finding me a role that I found preference for, Renz negotiated some of the working terms and was really helpful with that and also giving the information on the business and giving me good interview prep and tips. I would recommend Renz to anyone looking for their next challenge! Thanks again for your help, really looking forward to getting started.”

Account Manager, Data and Metering Services

Renz has spotted the potential in me and offered a job role that was a perfect match to my skills. Although he did not have the technical understanding of the job profile, his recruiter instinct was strong and undoubtedly correct at the end. He is very friendly and approachable that sets him apart from many recruiters that just after the commission. Without him, I very much doubt I would even look for another job opportunity. Thank you so much for putting me forward and finding me this job.”

I cannot praise the service Renz and Utility People provided enough.”

Office Manager, Alfa Energy

“I was contacted by Renz at Utility People and it was nice to receive a call that was not patronising or arrogant, as I have found with many agency calls. Throughout the process, I received calls and emails from Renz giving me tips to help me prepare for the interviews and I was really impressed by the profile Utility People had sent to the employer and I got the job. The whole process from my first application to my first day at the new job took about 2 months and I was fully supported throughout this time by Utility People through calls and emails. I would really recommend Utility People and Renz to others looking for work.”
Data Manager, Total Gas and Power

“My experience of working with Renz was exceptional. From initial contact until he successfully placed me into a role, he consistently supported me in my applications. He went above and beyond to ensure I was prepared for interviews and provided an approachable but professional service. Renz provided me with an incredible service that is second to none. For a reliable, considerate service, with recruiters who genuinely care about your application, I would look no further than Renz’s Utility People. He is the best recruiter that I have ever met! He helped me get a job within few weeks of my first meeting with him. He provided me with resources that helped gain a greater insight into the area I wanted to go into, which in turn made the interview easier as I knew a lot about the job I was applying for. Renz provided me with his personal number which makes it easy for me to communicate with him and he only put me forward for roles that are suitable for me. Throughout the whole process, Renz supported me, called me to see how each stage of the interview went and was prompt in following up. This is all down to his professional and first class service. I am happily looking forward to my new job. Thank you so much Renz, I would recommend you to anyone who is looking to get into employment without a doubt!”
Accounts Analyst, DONG Energy

“Just a brief note to thank you for all your help in securing me my new job. From the outset you have conducted yourself professionally whilst adapting your behaviour enabling me to feel at ease. Had it not been for you talking to the hiring manager and ascertaining exactly what the role entailed, I would have withdrawn my application believing that the role was predominantly sales orientated. Glad I didn’t now. You are a real credit to your organisation and consequently I have now passed your details on to couple of friends of mine who too are looking for new opportunities.”
Account Manager, Power Data Associates

“Renz has been a great help for me in securing my role within Alfa Energy. He took over from another recruitment company, at the point I was beginning to lose faith in me even securing an interview. He was extremely efficient, kept me informed and reassured me in my ability to get the job. Thank you Renz for all you have done and I will definitely be referring people to Utility People.”
Servicing Account Manager, Alfa Energy

Can’t recommend him and Utility People highly enough!”

Head of Bureau, Utility Aid

It was really helpful for me to build initial trust with organisation. It has been a great pleasure working with you.”
Data Quality Analyst, Dyball Associates

“Firstly I’d like to thank Renz at Utility People for getting me back into the workplace. I liked the fact that he was not only honest and transparent with me but also with the client. Renz was constantly supportive and a phone call was never too much trouble for him. Thank you for all of your hard work for getting me here, and for the gift which greeted me on my first day (the starter pack).”
Data Analyst, Optima

“I was contacted by Renz about a BDM role which usually I would have turned down as it wasn’t what I was looking for. Renz talked me through the role and persuaded me to go for the interview and thank goodness I did! Throughout the whole process Renz was very professional and kept me updated throughout. What I really liked about him was that he had every confidence in me and supported me though the whole process.”
BDM, Stark

“I want to say a huge thank you for all Renz’s help and support in finding my new job. The position I took was one that he suggested based on my CV and his meeting with Utility Team and, although its early days, it feels like the perfect fit! The extra effort he made in getting me ready for my interviews was great and he was always at hand when I needed a bit of advice or guidance. I would not think twice about recommending Renz to anyone else looking for a new role. You’re a star!”
Service Delivery Manager, Utility Team

“I was initially contacted by Renz at Utility People whilst I was on holiday in Greece. Without hesitation Renz dropped me an email outlining the key aspects & responsibilities of the role. However I initially rejected the role as I was being very particular in my next venture, and I felt it was lacking in 1 or 2 key areas from the job spec (upon first glance). When I returned to the UK Renz dropped me a call & politely described the role in more detail, ironing out my initial reservations & began to set up a telephone interview with his client, as he was confident from both parties that there could be good synergy. Without Renz being confident in the role, & the ability to match candidate with client, I never would of had the opportunity to speak to the client first hand over the phone, to discover that in actual fact it was a great match. The whole process from there on out was smooth & plain sailing. I would highly recommend Utility People, Renz & Linda to others looking for work within the Energy industry”.
Anonymous Candidate, Utility Team

“I have now worked with Renz on a couple of occasions and at every stage I have found the experience to be a pleasure. At every stage Renz has been supportive, available and always there to provide the information I needed. I would not hesitate to recommend Renz to any other candidate who is looking for somebody to offer a professional and supportive service in helping them secure the right role. I would also recommend Renz to any business who is looking to hire as he takes the time to understand the requirements of the role and ensures his candidates are of the right calibre. I will not hesitate to use him in the future either when I am looking to recruit or if I am looking for a new opportunity”.
Anonymous Candidate, Utility Team

“Renz has been fantastic in helping me secure a role with Zenergi. Right from the first moment I spoke with Renz he has been extremely professional and supportive. He made a great effort to understand my current situation and skill set and was able to find a role pretty quickly which suited myself. Throughout the process Renz kept me well informed and provided helpful tips with regards to the interview process. I would highly recommend Renz and Utility People for anyone looking for a new role in the energy industry. Thank you again – it has been a real pleasure working with you.”
Relationship Manager, Zenergi

“Working with Renz was a delightful experience from the start of the process right up until the start of my new role. When Renz first contacted me he took the time to get to know me and provided clear information on the roles and what would be expected; he helped me realise that I was suited for roles that I had never even considered before! He kept in regular contact with me and provided support, ensuring that I was prepared for the interview and knew my strengths. Having never worked with an agency before, or in the energy sector, I was highly impressed and reassured with the professionalism and support offered by Renz. Knowing that I had someone to help with any queries or worries just a quick phone call away certainly made the process a lot less stressful!”
Field Service Support Analyst, TMA Data Management

I would wholeheartedly recommend Renz and the team at Utility People”
Pricing and Trading Analyst, So Energy

“I was contacted by Renz at Utility People about a role he thought would be suitable for me. Throughout the process, I received calls and emails from Renz keeping me informed of the progress of the application, and boosting my confidence, as I was understandably nervous having been out of the energy industry for some time. I would recommend Utility People and Renz to others looking for work, It is good to find a recruiter, and agency, that really do deliver on their promises.”

Anonymous Candidate

“I was contacted by Renz about the possibility of exploring a new challenge in my career, whilst I wasn’t actively looking, the way he presented the opportunity gained my interest immediately. Whilst going through the interview process, Renz was constantly available for feedback and was rigorous in his organisation of each stage. Even with the current climate, Renz was still in touch with updates and re-arranged the final stage when it became an option during lockdown. I applaud his tenacity and he is a credit to the company. Many thanks for all of your help in helping me secure my new role. Thanks for your help again Renz.”
TPI Channel Executive, Stark

“I want to say a huge thank you to Renz for all the support he has provided to me during this pandemic. I was one of many who lost their job due to the crisis and Renz was so enthusiastic, motivating and gave me hope. Renz secured me with a couple of interviews in March 2020 however the companies put their job recruitment on hold. Through regular contact and monitoring the market place, I am so happy to confirm that with the help of Renz, I have now secured a role back in Account Management for a great Energy Consultancy. It has been an interesting and stressful year for all during this pandemic and I just can’t thank Renz and his team enough.”
Account Manager, ZTP

“Renz is a true representative of his job, very professional and very communicative. He reinstated confidence from the first day he called about a few jobs that I might be interested in. Arranged everything from telephone interview through to face to face and thankfully making sure everything was in order for me to start. I am in a happy place, all thanks to your professionalism, motivation, support and your belief in me. Continue the great work and stay blessed. Sincerely thank you so much Renz, God bless you.”
Account Coordinator, Brook Green Supply

“I worked with Renz in 2018 but I then decided to leave the energy industry. Renz actually maintained professional contact to see how I was getting on within my new role even though I was no longer his candidate. This in itself, just shows his character and genuine care for his clients and candidates. Last year, I realised I really wanted to get back to energy so I knew to reach out to Renz in the first instance before contacting anyone else because of how he handled my search previously. He knew right away where I would fit in well and he has now successfully placed me with a client who tick every box for me. Thank you so much to Renz. I know I will be with this company for years to come but should I ever want to search again in the far future, I know I will be reaching out to Renz once again without hesitation.”
Account Manager, Energy Brokerage

“Renz was, without doubt the best recruiter I have dealt with over the last decade. His communications were always to the point, punctual and informative and allowed me to make correct choices. I would recommend him to any candidate for providing the feedback required in a timely manner and for ensuring that I was well-prepared before meeting any potential employer.”
Business Development Manager

“Thank you for all your support on the journey to securing my position with Envantage. I was very impressed with your professionalism from the outset and how proactive you were. Always followed up when you said you would, and always got a message to me when you were busy. Ive always seen how active you are on Linkedin when I wasn’t looking for a job. Everyone knows you in my professional circle. Wishing you much continued success. Many thanks again Renz I will keep in touch for sure.”
BDM, Envantage

“I was contacted by Renz at Utility people and what a great call it was. Renz introduced himself and his role at the company. He was friendly and very easy to speak to. Renz took a real interest in my career options and what he thought was a good move for my career. When finding a potential job opportunity Renz was amazing through the whole process. Renz kept in touch via phone and email and was always responding to messages thoroughly. He even continued to keep me updated without me chasing. The support I received from Utility People and Renz himself is unforgettable and would highly recommend them when looking for work.”
Operations Supplier Account Support, Stark

“After becoming somewhat disillusioned with the recruitment process (including agencies) during lockdown I found Renz’s approach a refreshing change. He was very pragmatic and honest about the opportunity, ensuring that I was a good fit for the company – making sure I felt comfortable before moving forward. He kept me updated on the progress of my application as well providing helpful guidance for the interviews. It felt like just about the right amount of support I need to get the job.”
Energy Trader, Energy Consultancy

“Renz had paid particular attention to my skill set and experience and managed to match me with my perfect job. I simply changed my profile on Linked In, when I was made redundant and Renz approached me within the week and we agreed that I was suitable for a Business Development Manager role, which he put me forward for. I was kept informed of the situation throughout the interview process which was all carried out on Zoom, which was unusual, however Renz put my mind at rest and assured me that this is the normal protocol. He obviously only works with reputable businesses hence the company I have secured a position with are very professional and easy to get along with. I would not hesitate to recommend Renz to any business’s looking to recruit or candidates searching for work.”
Business Development Manager, Energy Consultancy

“Renz contacted me out the blue about a position I wasn’t aware of. Three weeks later I was excitedly beginning my career in energy. He kept in contact with me making sure everything was going well and gave me information and tips to make sure I had the best chance at success in the interviews. Renz has been fantastic on behalf of Utility People and I would highly recommend him. Without him I would still be searching for “that” job but now I can finally get my career going.”
Systems Operator, Flexitricity

“Renz contacted me after finding my CV/LinkedIn and saw me as a perfect match for a role with an Energy Consultancy, not only was there a need for someone who had previous energy industry experience, working with large datasets etc, but a need to start immediately which I was in the position to do. Looking at the timeline of recruitment, within my first contact with Renz he had an interview arranged for me which was the next day, keeping me informed at all times, I was interviewed the next day, face to face the day after and in role 4 days after. Although my experience and my interview got me the role, arguably it was down to Renz too, to say that Renz has incredible matching skills is an understatement, in addition he is very professional and very supportive. I would recommend speaking with Renz if you are looking for work in the industry, I have been in role for about 2 months now and I am thoroughly enjoying it, building my own channel and team already and directing a business data plan to future proof us, I would also recommend Renz to assist you in recruitment if your business is struggling to find the right match.”
Lead Data Analyst, Energy Consultancy

“I was contacted by Renz after updating my CV online. He was working on a job vacancy that was perfect for me, to be honest I wasn’t really looking. After reading the job spec I was able to see this was great opportunity. I agreed to be put forward. Renz was prompt in his responses and was able to give me pretty much immediate feedback on my interviews. I have now secured the position and am due to start next month. I want to thank Renz for his support, he clearly has an eye for pairing the right candidate to the role.”
Data and Recovery Team Manager, Carbon and Energy Management Solutions Company

“The experience with Utility People was a pleasure. My recruiter Renz, was professional and proactive throughout the whole process, from the preparation to interview and chasing up key information. I feel as though not all recruiters have your best interest at heart but with Utility People, the client/ candidate is put first. I would highly recommend to anyone I know going forward to use Utility People and in particular Renz are your go to people.”
Energy Bureau Analyst, Energy Consultancy

“Renz has been great throughout the whole recruitment process – I was happy in my current role and he encouraged me to go for the new job opportunity, with helpful knowledge of the company, reassurance of my skills, and being readily available for any of my questions. I’m very much looking forward to the new role, and Renz has played a large part in it – Thanks for all your help!”
Senior Energy Consultant, Energy Consultancy

“In looking for my next role in the energy industry, Renz was incredibly helpful and worked with me to find a role that was a brilliant fit. He was very communicative and knowledgeable, and I recommend him to anyone who is looking for their next challenge!”
Sales Support Analyst

“Renz and I connected a while ago on LinkedIn and from that moment I knew that Renz would provide the chance to develop my career further. I hadn’t specifically tasked Renz to look out for me, but I knew he would be an asset for my future. When he found a role suited to my skills he kept me updated throughout, was very personable and professional. I’ll definitely stay in touch.”
Service Delivery Manager, Energy Consultancy

“Throughout the whole process I found Renz very friendly and easy to talk to while remaining professional. I felt he was very approachable which helped as I knew I could ask any questions if I had any and it wouldn’t be a problem to him. He kept me updated throughout the whole process and never left me not knowing, as well as making sure I was very prepared for my interview. It felt like he genuinely seemed to care about my success in getting the job rather than it just being his job. Renz has been the most helpful recruiter I have been in contact with without a doubt.”
Project Support Coordinator

“I have been in the acquaintance of Renz since joining the industry and have always kept in touch as and when roles popped up as I gained experience. I received an email/message/call from Renz with job vacancies which matched my skills, experience and ambitions perfectly during the Autumn of 21. It was amazing to know that Renz had kept me in mind and remembered me for roles as from experience no other recruiting consultancy had ever done that! That is what makes Utility People stand out. Renz kept me very up to date during the interview process and I can’t thank him enough for matching me to a company that have the same ambitions and values as me. A massive thank you for helping me develop my career!”
Client Support Analyst, Energy Consultancy

“This is the second time I’ve worked with Renz at Utility People and he’s been equally as communicative and helpful both times. Renz was honest with his approach and managed to find me a great opportunity, throughout the process he was efficient and in regular contact with updates about the role and interview process. I would have no hesitation recommending Renz to anyone looking for a new job.”
Relationship Manager

“I had the pleasure to work with Renz securing a new job opportunity. I really enjoyed the recruitment process from the first interview until the job offer. Renz was introduced to me by a friend. When we spoke initially, he took the time to understand my experiences and expectations to move into a new position. Before each interview, he gave me a precise and clear list of tasks I had to do to prepare myself in advance, focusing on my strengths and how to make my weaknesses positive. He provided support and kept in regular contact with me. I have no hesitation to recommend Renz to any businesses or candidates.”
