RO identified the US Solar industry as their focus and have built a brand synonymous with market expertise and contingent delivery. Their talent pool of skilled professionals is unrivalled, billing £110,000 in a single month from candidates sourced within their database.

In 2020 they released the Solar industry's first Salary Guide and are at the forefront of conversations around diversity and the long-term vision of Clean Energy in the US.

After winning business from more established competitors and doubling their headcount year on year, RO is now strategically expanding into complementary niches including Wind, Utilities and Transportation.

testimonial from ro

Three years ago, we set up RO with the ambitious idea of becoming the number one recruitment agency for Renewables in the US. Naming the business after my firstborns Rocco and Otis makes the company name mean so much to me and gives me the extra motivation to make it succeed. There have been many ups and downs along the way, but we are now growing stronger than ever. Thank you to all the Tempting Ventures team for being part of the journey so far and working extremely hard this year to keep us on budget during unprecedented times. Here’s to the next steps we take as a business!


A special thanks to Ryan Cleland-Bogle for believing in the business and supporting us through our growth. I can't recommend a better investor in the market!
