Over the past 10 years, Advance Careers has established itself as a renowned provider of recruitment, search and staffing solutions for energy transition and sustainability organisations – particularly for highly-skilled technical and niche roles associated with emerging technologies. Joining forces with Brunel will enable Advance Careers to take that business model to the next level. 

Advance Careers’ strong performance to date, focus on highly technical skillsets, and commitment to sustainability and humanitarian causes, align closely with Brunel’s own values and strategic objectives. 

Brunel’s Managing Director of Operations, Tania Sinibaldi, remarked on the value she sees created by the amalgamation.

“There is a great opportunity for us to take the exceptional relationship and knowledge building the Advance Careers team has done over the past decade, and to amplify this by connecting them with Brunel’s global infrastructure, reach and expanded suite of capabilities,” Ms Sinibaldi said.

“The true value here is in the people and the way they operate. The Advance Careers team are so earnest and genuine in all that they do, and also have an impressive depth of knowledge when it comes to the ever-evolving technologies used in energy production.”

Advance Careers’ Directors Neil Chandaria and Chris Wellock reflected similarly on the positive impact they anticipate the merger with Brunel will provide for their business.

“This is an opportunity for us to continue doing what we do best with a like-minded partner that can give us a serious injection of infrastructure, support functions and international reach,” Mr Chandaria said. 

Chris Wellock echoed this enthusiasm. “We’re excited about the years ahead, exploring what possibilities we can create harnessing the power of Brunel to do what we do well, on a larger scale,” he said.
