Our Industries and Services

Digital Transformation

The role and consequences of digital technology impacts every sector and industry.

Identifying and securing the right leadership and talent is critical to shape appropriate transformation strategies and ensure that this is embedded effectively across an organisation.  We have a track record of attracting professionals into sectors with critical transformation needs.

Consulting Services

Acquisition of the right skills at the right time is only one consideration for companies today.  Understanding workforce dynamics, topics such as ED&I*, regulatory requirements and employee engagement are all critical to building high performing teams.

Thomas Thor partners with many clients to ensure appointments are considered in the context of organisational development and internal HR processes are optimised.  Our advisory services include interview technique and anti-bias training for HR teams, process optimisation, workforce planning and gap analysis, talent pool creation, decision making support and communications advisory.

Renewable Energy

Our company has always believed in supporting a clean energy future and in the power of human ingenuity to create a better world.

We understand the dynamics of the energy transition and the macro environment impacting renewable energy providers. Talent is critical to driving this sector forward and reaching the carbon emission targets set by governments around the world. We can help you find the skills you need.

Life Science

Thomas Thor Associates has experience across complex, sensitive, technical and critical industries including chemicals and pharmaceuticals.

We understand the standards and protocols required and pride ourselves not only on identifying the best candidates from within a given industry but on building and attracting world-leading talent from adjacent sectors who, in a world of transformation and convergence, can bring new skills and perspectives.

Finance and Banking

With disruption to business models, a focus on security and changing regulatory environments, we support organisations looking to secure talent for ‘critical to fill’ positions.

Our work has included many aspects of the financial sector, including commercial banking, investment banking, fintech and corporate finance.


Major Infrastructure Projects

Our expertise in the nuclear industry has seen us engage in major infrastructure projects over the last decade.  We understand the importance of balancing vision and ambition with delivery and ensuring the right skills are in place across the project, at varying stages, to achieve the targets set.

Our team is also experienced in mobilizing talent across borders and is regularly acknowledged for an unsurpassed service and candidate experience.  The pandemic has also seen us develop our capabilities in virtual knowledge transfer and access to subject matter experts, an area we know many organisations are now considering expanding.

Our involvement with Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and Inclusion are our core values and we thrive in our own organisation to encourage and promote them. We know the challenges of being an inclusive workplace in very different cultural contexts. We have a staff member whose time is fully dedicated to it who reports directly to our CEO.


Ensuring diversity and inclusion has been a core value for Thomas Thor since our inception.  However, beyond our own commitment we play an active role in funding and driving the dialogue about ED&I across nuclear and regulated sectors.

For clients we have a range of services to support internal processes and staff development to improve interviewing and selection.  We also have experience in attracting talent from under-represented groups.

Recruiting consultants play a huge role identifying, selecting and presenting diverse candidates to our clients.  The mere choice of non gendered vocabulary in job advertisement is important.

Our consultants are trained to take their own unconscious bias into account and also provide different solutions to hiring managers such as getting an anonymised long list of candidates or putting a relocation help in place to increase the attractivity of some projects.
