EarthStream was founded in 2010 as a specialist global recruiting business by a team of experienced staffing entrepreneurs. The initial focus was to provide a range of specialist STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) skills specifically to the energy & resources industry sectors. However over time the business has expanded its STEM skill reach into other industry sectors and leveraged its extensive global office network to service local demand. The business received a private equity investment from Key Capital Partner in 2013 and is now over 100 internal employees, across six key office hubs around the world that are supported a further eight international local satellite sales representative offices.

OUR Track record

With now over 5 years of track record EarthStream has placed over 4,000 people in 60 different countries since inception. Throughout the journey of building up a global network of offices and placing both direct hire and freelance contractors we have built a fountain of knowledge of how to find hard to find candidates from talent pools all over the world. We have then developed a process to place them in other parts of the world with the associated relocation, visa and logistics support. We have maintained a high ratio of repeat clients and case studies that have enabled us to record an aggregate sales turnover of $120m in our first five years of trading from a pure start-up in July 2010.

EarthStream has experienced a rapid phase of growth in its first five years from foundation in July 2010. As we embark on our new five year vision we have on-going need for both experienced recruitment consultants and graduate trainees throughout our global office network. The entry point for experienced consultants will be to demonstrate a track record of success recruiting in an expert technical discipline that has yielded consistent success due to its specialist skill focus. Our consultants specialize in a specific vertical sector or skill discipline that enables them to provide genuine knowledge and experience in order to deliver real client value. We provide a defined career path with a personal learning and development plan aligned to a progressive compensation plan. We are also interested in hearing from ambitious, hardworking graduate trainees who are interested in building a career in recruiting and learning the industry as a researcher delivering candidates to our major accounts before transitioning into consulting. As a global business, additional languages are a definite advantage as is employee mobility. If you are interested please forward you resume to workforearthstream@earthstreamglobal.com
