Variant Partners has supported large energy and utility companies since 2000.  Our team has over 30 years of experience recruiting in the Energy Industry with a heavy focus on In-house Legal roles and Regulatory roles.  We have a large network of contacts with experience in investor owned utilities, merchant energy companies, energy intensive industries, water utilities, project developers, smart grid and T&D infrastructure developers, and consulting firms.

Because of our specialization, we can assure you access to the best available candidates in the industry. Effectively responding to our clients’ changing staffing needs is what guides us. Today, that means navigating the candidate-tight energy and water markets to find the people who will help your company thrive and grow. We also recognize that no two clients are alike, so we tailor each plan to meet your specific goals and requirements.
