The Service

As part of their growth strategy, Infinis approached ALLEN & YORK to support the expansion of their development team.  They were looking to recruit a Senior Project Developer and a Land & Estates Manager to join the team and focus on generating suitable sites for Wind Energy projects.  

The assignment was lead by a Senior Renewable Energy Consultant, to ensure a coordinated and expert approach.  Following a detailed discussion with key individuals, ALLEN & YORK activated their extensive network and quickly presented a comprehensive shortlist of suitable renewable energy specialists with a proven track record, relevant qualifications and an enthusiasm for the role.


Infinis were impressed by the quality of the candidates interviewed and indentified one stand-out individual.  ALLEN & YORK ensured the smooth appointment of the future employee and both parties were very pleased with the outcome.  This was a great result for ALLEN & YORK who look forward to working with Infinis on further assignments in the future.
