About Applica

We aspire to be the preferred recruitment partner for an engaged group of clients and candidates. We are people-centric, diligent, agile, safe and innovative. In practice this means that we understand good people are essential to what we do, and we are flexible enough to always challenge the status quo and suggest new ways of working. We always operate in a way that mitigates operational and commercial risks for our people and we pride ourselves on the completion of our work in a thorough manner.

Our operations are strategically structured to align with our clients, meaning that we have businesses registered in both Houston and Stavanger to support the large energy markets of North America and Norway. Our head office is based in Manchester which serves as a global recruitment hub but also services the UK market. We also have solutions in place for the majority of European and Asia countries.

What people say about us

Industries We Work In

The energy industry is Applica’s sole focus. Like many of our customers, we have evolved from non-renewable sources of energy such as oil and gas and still have significant expertise and networks in that sector. We also recognise the need to plan for the future and that sustainable renewable energy will be the most important fuel source for future generations. We are supporting our customers that are making the energy transition journey, including growth areas such as digitalisation, and also working with companies that have specialised in the renewables sector from inception. Fundamentally, we are experts in finding the best technical and cultural match for departments and projects, regardless of the method of energy extraction.
