Smart recruitment for smart energy

Lowri Beck Systems have been providing nationwide metering & data services to utilities businesses since 1996. We have partnered with the business for 9 years, watching the systems division grow from a headcount of 4 to 60 during that time. A government led initiative to install smart energy devices to all British homes led to a requirement for Lowri Beck to hire 17 contract developers across Oracle and .Net.


  • After being secured on an exclusive basis to fill the roles, we first gained an in depth understanding of the requirements and market knowledge.
  • Developed and deployed a multi-channel sourcing strategy across traditional methods, extending to more innovative methods such as pay-per-click and social media campaigns.  
  • A strong network of relationships within the North West, together with a strong referral network delivered almost immediate results.


  • Hit the ground running – over 40 fully qualified applications were made within the first 3 days.
  • A story of success – all 17 vacancies were interviewed, offered and filled within 4 weeks – 3 weeks ahead of client schedule.
  • Saving money - Significant cost savings due to formal rate card introduction.
