Rockwood Energy Search is a recruiting firm that focuses on the talent needs of firms that provide:

fuel and energy management services to select sectors of the downstream energy markets.

Retail energy

  •   Natural Gas/Electricity Marketers
  •   Propane & Heating Oil Dealers
  •   Energy Management Service Providers
  •   Business Automation Controls Providers
  •   Commercial-Scale Solar
  •   Electric and Gas Utilities

Wholesale energy

Technology Firms

In addition, we work with technology firms that support and supplement services to these two sectors.

We operate on both a contingency and retained search basis in the US and Canada. Our most junior placements are for candidates with 1-2 years experience making base salaries of $50-60K; our senior placements are at the senior-vice-president level where base compensation is $200-$300K.

Go to each sector’s web page of this site to find the types of jobs we fill.


 Clients find:

  •    We can help them refine their recruiting targets to lower total compensation
  •    Our standards of recruiting mean that they see only qualified candidates
  •    We can match client culture with people from similar corporate cultures

Candidates find:

  •   We know how best to present them to the right opportunities
  •   We can help them maximize their long-term career potential
  •   We can help them understand the turbulent energy job markets

We believe that:

“The most expensive part of a search is the empty seat.”
