We connect people

building a carbon-free future

We strive to partner with companies at the forefront of the low carbon transition presenting some of the most exciting opportunities to our global network.

Within emerging markets where experience is scarce, we strategically build relationships with leading professionals before the point they are actively looking. We use our deep understanding of our clients and the sector to create a unique proposition to attract high-quality candidates for a given assignment.

We always place emphasis on finding a lasting fit between cultural and behavioral aspects along with aligning individual motivations with company ambitions.

Our services


We offer retained search for business-critical hires and challenging assignments globally within the low-carbon sector.


We offer contingent permanent searches for less critical and/or junior vacancies. This is usually on an exclusive basis as your brand ambassador.


Fast global search and selection of highly skilled contractors.

Our sectors

The global population is forecast to grow to 9.8 billion meaning the demand for more sustainable homes, schools and infrastructure is at an all-time high.

Tonic has partnered with many pioneering construction firms pushing the boundaries of MMC.


Energy storage is transforming the electricity sector through increased flexibility and security.

Tonic’s expertise across the lifecycle of grid-scale energy storage projects positions us to support all players within the industry.


As electricity cannot easily be stored in large amounts, supply and demand must be balanced at all times.

Tonic has a deep understanding of the recruiting for these different skillsets in worldwide power markets for a range of companies.


Technology is having a huge impact on our electrical grids with solutions such as demand response and virtual power plants allowing us to manage our energy more efficiently.

Our story

Our Directors, Lewis Lawes and Will Davis started their careers with two of the most internationally respected energy recruitment consultancies. During their time there they partnered with pioneering companies across the sector and received industry-leading recruitment training.

They have both brought that expertise to Tonic with the added benefit of being a highly flexible SME. This allows Tonic to adapt to the fast-moving low-carbon industry and to measure our success on excellent customer service. Because of this Tonic builds lasting relationships rather than focusing on short-term financial KPIs.

Our consultants are people driven not sales-driven and have a genuine passion for creating opportunities for the candidates we work with, helping people take the next steps in their careers at some of the world’s most disruptive businesses.

Tonic is not your average recruitment business; we place high importance on an honest approach to the industry and work in partnership with everyone we work with. We facilitate growth plans to help take businesses to the next level.

"Since our formation, we have worked hard to become the go-to recruitment partner to many well-known and internationally recognised business. We have done this by helping our candidates accelerate their careers and working with our clients in an advisory nature. Ultimately the Tonic team are here to produce a consistently high service through a consultative and supportive approach to recruitment. Given a chance, we won't let you down."
