Managing Director, Utilities, Houston, TX

We have been extremely satisfied with the quality of candidates that Oscar Energy have provided us. They have been very good about sending us candidates that fit the profile we are looking for, and have worked at providing candidates in a very timely manner. They have partnered well with myself and all the managers at First Solar

I have worked with Oscar on Exploration, Subsurface and Drilling roles for Maersk Oil Copenhagen for little over a year now and out of the seven PSL agencies Maersk Oil has on our PSL, Oscar have placed six candidates with my accounts - the highest number of candidates from any of the agencies. I consider Oscar to be one of the best agencies I work with in terms of providing good candidates, timely follow ups and a good and professional – not too pushy – approach to me as a client.

Thanks for your support and follow up when discussing a position required of Reservoir Engineering Manager.

There was an urgency to get the position filled in less than six weeks that obliged me to get in touch with you. Despite the timing, you were able to provide a list of available candidates of high quality.

As a hiring manager I get multiple calls off various agencies throughout the day but such is Oscar's reputation and network, I only tend to work with them.

Oscar have also been nothing short of a breath of fresh air to work with. A fantastic company that have the personal touch, they make you feel like an individual rather than a number which so many of the larger agencies do. 


Oscar provided us with several excellent candidates - particularly two senior Geoscientists who are both getting exceptional feedback from the wider business.

I have no hesitation in recommending Oscar.

Managing Director, Utilities, Houston, TX

Oscar was able to understand and convey my unique combination of technical and client-facing skills while being cognizant of the requirements. It’s nice to know someone put so much time and effort into ensuring that I got this job and that I was happy even after my hire.

I am extremely grateful to Oscar for helping begin an amazing career. 


Shahid, Materials Testing Project Manager

Alex worked very diligently covering all of the details of the CB&I position. He kept on-going communications with me on the status of the position and where the client was at with me and helped to push my information and experience for the position.

I highly recommend Alex Mowbray and Oscar Energy to others seeking candidate positions.


Jeff, Commissioning, Start-Ups, Safety, & Construction

This is my first assignment for many years working as international staff and I was very impressed by the way Oscar's recruitment consultant interfaced and worked with both parties during the somewhat lengthy and challenging selection process.

Oscar was transparent, professional, open and their consultant was knowledgeable, articulate, friendly and obviously well educated. I was very satisfied with their performance was would recommend them to any technical professional looking for work.

Charles, Lead Mechanical Engineer

Alex is very responsible, trustworthy and supportive. He kept me up to date at stages of the recruitment and it's been a real pleasure working with him.

I highly recommend Alex - the recruitment process went smooth and was successful.
