Commodities, Mining & Energy


To recruit senior roles in the commodities, mining and energy sectors, you need a specialist partner with in-depth, on-the-ground knowledge and expertise.

McCann & Braham work with some of the world’s largest commodity trading, oil and gas, mining, energy and agricultural businesses to help identify and source exceptional talent at head office and often in more challenging locations. Our clients say we are extremely thorough and professional in finding the best-fit candidates.

We provide executive search solutions to trading houses, producers, major mining companies, utilities, merchants, hedge funds, investment banks and brokerages in these fields. We focus on corporate, front and middle office hiring, and work in the physical and financial global commodities markets.

Our practice specialises in the appointment of senior professionals across the following functional service lines: financial control; internal audit; risk and compliance; legal; HR; commercial sales; trading and marketing.

We help many global commodity trading, mining and energy companies fill roles in head offices and on-site operations throughout the world, such as at refineries, oil terminals, smelters and mine sites. Many of these expatriate roles are in challenging locations, such as Burkina Faso, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Colombia, Madagascar, the Philippines, and remote parts of Australia and Canada. Most often they are on a fly-in fly-out (FIFO) or residential basis.
