Energy & Resources Opportunities in USA

Overview:
Are you looking for a company that values its culture as highly as the work it does? In a business where the people are always put first? With colleagues you value and trust?  Doing work that has a meaningful impact on society?

We can provide you with all of that and more.

Baringa may be a new name to you, but our roots may also be very familiar. The Structure Group or “Structure” - a leading US consultancy which had a major impact on the development of wholesale energy markets and smart grids in the US - launched operations in the UK in 2000 serving US energy trading firms that had set-up in Europe. The founding team of Baringa Partners came from that European operation. 20 years later Baringa has continued the deep industry domain focus and expanded it into a thriving business working across multiple industries including Energy, Financial Services, Telco & Media, Pharma, Consumer Products & Retail and Government.  Our North American team is currently focused on building our Financial Services and Energy/Utilities teams, but we have plans to launch other industry verticals within the next 18 months.  North America represents the largest consulting market in the world and we are excited about the prospects to grow a top-tier consulting firm here that is truly differentiated both for our people and for the experience that clients have working with us.

We’re looking for great people to join our growing team.  We are seeking individuals who are passionate about their own development and looking to make a bigger impact in the industries they serve.  Colleagues who brings their own views and perspective based on their own expertise and experience to date. Ultimately, another friendly face in the market, and another person to join our exciting new North American practice. We will be serving utility and energy companies across North America.  Initial client concentrations are in the Northeast, but we are recruiting candidates who can make the biggest impact to our team irrespective of where they live.

Baringa believe that diversity is paramount to driving creativity, innovation and value for our clients and for our people. All applications will receive consideration for employment without regard to ethnicity, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, nationality, disability, age, or social background.

These are the reasons people come to us, and these are the reasons they stay.
