Freshwater Group is a best practice energy sector recruitment business operating across the whole of Australasia. We offer our customers a genuine partnership, enabling them to make the best decisions in their hiring and career choices. We use a rigorous and transparent process based on best-practice techniques, with robust and valid assessment at its heart. We ensure the people our clients interview not only have the necessary skills and experience, but that their natural behaviours are a great match for the role, the company and its culture.

We manage the entire process of sourcing, assessing and selecting great people for permanent or contracting roles right across the energy sector. Our recruitment process is professional and robust, and we apply it to every role we recruit for. Assessment is at the heart of this process, allowing us objectively to learn about people’s style and behaviour through psychometric assessment, ability testing, interviewing and referencing.


We offer assessment consultancy as a stand-alone service. Our clients use this, for example, to sample our assessment tool before they commit to the full recruitment process, assess a candidate they have sourced themselves or analyse the behaviours and traits of existing team members. Clients can use all of our assessment process or just one part of it. It is entirely modular and flexible enough to accomodate your specific needs.


We treat people as people, not commodities, always communicating openly, honestly and transparently, and always putting their interests first. That’s why our recruitment service, with its focus on robust, professional assessment, is as much about finding a great role for a person, as finding a great person for a role. We want our candidates to find roles that they thrive and succeed in – roles to which they are entirely suited.


Being an energy sector recruitment business we focus on those areas we believe will play an increasingly important role, such as low carbon emission and renewable energy generation; energy infrastructure, storage and management; and energy efficiency and disruptive clean technologies. In the past year all these areas have undergone incredible growth.
