ABERDEEN-BASED oil and gas consultant Xodus Group – among the exhibitors at the All-Energy showcase – has attributed 22% growth in its workforce to increased market demand for its specialist environmental service, and in particular its expertise in marine renewables.
In the past six months the firm has seen employee numbers rise by almost one-quarter to 222.
In addition to Aberdeen, where 101 people are employed, Xodus has UK offices in Perth, London and Stromness. Overseas locations include Dubai and America. Managing director Colin Manson said: “Over the past three years we have focused on building a strong team, enhancing our service capabilities and expanding internationally.
“Despite current market conditions, that hard work is now coming to fruition and the pace at which we have grown has exceeded even our own ambitions.
“The environmental and renewable-energy market is a key growth region for the group. We now have over 35 people working in our environmental division which spans Orkney, Aberdeen and London.”
