What our staff say

SgurrEnergy staff

With over 300 staff across 18 global offices, SgurrEnergy staff have a lot to say about working for us. We have team members who have been working here since the company began in 2002 and others who have been here for a matter of weeks, but we’d like to share with you some of their insights into working with SgurrEnergy.

"Having been with SgurrEnergy a few months, the first thing that I noticed was the professional, hard working but friendly environment throughout the company. As my first job from university, I am continually learning, expanding my knowledge and experience as well as learning about the potential that renewable energy has to positively impact the future of energy production.

I love the international aspect of the company and the chance that it gives me to work with people from different countries, cultures and backgrounds. With bases around the world, it is ideal to tap into international colleagues’ local knowledge and experience to make for a better informed project execution."

Joined SgurrEnergy: 2007

"I joined the company in 2007 as a PA and my role has since expanded to incorporate the HR function and the management of a team of five, giving me a great opportunity to grow professionally.

Working for a young, vibrant and social company, with a wealth of team spirit, is great and I love that every day brings a new challenge- no two days are the same.

The company grew from two consultants working from an attic in Glasgow to the continuing success that it is today, while staying true to its Scottish roots and, for me, that’s inspiring."

Joined SgurrEnergy: 2006

"When I joined SgurrEnergy back in 2006, it was a small company of 20 staff in Glasgow with big aspirations. Now, we have more than 250 staff across 17 global offices and it’s great to see how much we have achieved over the past few years. Despite the continued growth, the spirit of SgurrEnergy has pretty much stayed the same and I hope it remains for years to come.

The thing I enjoy most about working here is that I’m working in a field I truly believe in, with talented, like-minded people who are both valued colleagues and now friends."

Joined SgurrEnergy: 2012

"After graduating, I got into the engineering design industry so joining SgurrEnergy has given me an opportunity to shape my career and re-engage with my initial passion for renewable energy.

The company’s culture exudes energy, passion and commitment which makes it a great place to work and the whole team is like an extended family. I get to work with a wealth of smart and capable people from teams across the globe and it’s great to be able to tap into their expertise, while being given the freedom to try new things, particularly in the Indian market."

Joined SgurrEnergy: 2011

"I wanted to work for a company that let me use the education that I’ve acquired and this is what attracted me to SgurrEnergy. Working on multidisciplinary projects, I’m using my expertise daily and constantly learning new skills from colleagues.

What I enjoy most about working for SgurrEnergy is the diversity across the company- from the types of projects that we’re working on at various stages of development and their locations around the world, to the nationalities and cultural diversity of my colleagues. It means that no two days are the same and that makes for an interesting and stimulating working life.

It’s immensely rewarding to work on projects that are making a positive contribution- particularly when we’re assisting in the development of renewables in other countries like Mongolia, the Philippines and Malawi where we’re working on some of the first wind projects that these countries have commissioned.” I honestly believe that there is nowhere else I would have gained so much experience in such a short time."
