All About

Eva Talent

Eva Talent has over 20 years of experience in Executive Recruitment in the global Energy, Engineering and Industrial sectors. Their mission is to change the way organisations think about the recruitment and retention of women in their organisations.

The problem most
companies face

  • Women make up only 15% of total management roles in science, engineering & technology
  • Women represent only 21% of the global wind workforce and only 8% are in senior management roles
  • Women represent only 15% of employees in the Oil & Gas industry
  • Women only account for 22% of the traditional conventional power energy sector

As competition for talent grows the ability to understand where female talent communities are and how to reach them will become a basic requirement for any recruiting function.  Just talking about diversity as part of an employer brand is not enough.  When deciding whether or not to work for an employer, more women are looking to see active diversity progress that goes beyond recruitment.  Partnering with a specialist consultancy who have access to female talent, networks and communities will become a smart strategic investment for the future growth of your organisation.

The Diversity & Inclusion agenda is a key priority for most C level executives, however the strategies to achieve gender parity is not an easy quick fix solution.
