About Us

Whitcombe is a leading Australian owned and operated recruitment and staffing agency servicing a rapidly growing global Renewable Energy industry. Leveraging extensive recruitment experience throughout APAC, the Americas and Europe, we are perfectly positioned and connected in the Australian market to provide leading recruitment services and market insight.

Australian is just beginning its transition away from fossil fuels into a low carbon nation and we’re ready to tackle the staffing issues plaguing this emerging industry where good, proven talent is hard to find.



Don’t have an established recruitment team or Australian presence in your business? Want to cut your staffing costs? Whitcombe offers an in-house consulting service whereby we’ll work from your office (or ours) on a day rate. No success fee. Multiple job management. Managing several recruitment partners can be time consuming. Whitcombe removes the hassle.


If you need a candidate and want to secure our undivided attention, we offer an Exclusive Search for all seniority levels. Unlike our Executive Search service, this won’t require an up-front payment. We’ll give you our same premium service but without the same rigid time bounds. We’ll ask for a period of exclusivity to properly map the market to ensure that we get you the best available candidate at any given time.


Our contract search is the quickest and most efficient of the lot. We’ve developed a large network of contract workers throughout the Solar and Wind industries, many of whom are available at immediate notice. Whitcombe is able to provide payroll services to these contractors as required to take the stress out of hiring. Again we’ll give you a list of the best available candidates for you to choose from.
