With over two decades of experience in the recruitment industry, Adam Jefferson – a Recruitment Specialist at Global Edge’s Houston office – brings a wealth of knowledge to our team, particularly in the specialized field of subsea recruitment.

Adam’s journey with Global Edge began just under a year ago, marking a significant transition for him, as he moved from the UK to the US. The move, however, was remarkably smooth, thanks to the well-organized support provided by the Global Edge. Setting up his life in a new country felt surprisingly seamless, allowing Adam to focus on his role as a Recruitment Specialist.

Before joining Global Edge, Adam already had an extensive background in subsea recruitment, with ten years dedicated to the field. His previous employment spanned 17 and a half years, showcasing his commitment to and expertise in the industry. Having worked in the subsea sector for a substantial part of his career, Adam possesses an in-depth understanding of the disciplines, companies, and the types of individuals required for success in this niche.

In his 21st year in recruitment, Adam’s dedication to the field is evident. His career began in 2003, progressing through different roles and companies before finding a home at Global Edge. The longevity of his career reflects not only his expertise but also his ability to adapt and thrive in the dynamic recruitment landscape.

Originally hailing from Sunderland on the northeast coast of the UK, Adam’s move to Texas was a significant change. However, he embraced the warmth, hospitality, and cultural similarities between the people of Texas and his hometown, making the transition a positive experience.

Specializing in subsea recruitment, Adam sheds light on the complexity of the field. Subsea involves everything that occurs offshore, below sea level, encompassing wells, foundations, pipelines, umbilicals, and more. With a primary focus on the oil and gas sector, subsea recruitment is also a crucial part of the offshore renewable energy sector, ensuring its relevance for years to come.

As one of our go-to in-house subsea experts at the Global Edge, Adam plays a vital role in identifying and securing top talent for subsea roles. His approach to working with candidates and contractors revolves around open communication, honesty, and a genuine commitment to understanding their needs. Adam emphasizes the importance of mediating deals and providing candidates with all the necessary information to make informed decisions about their career moves.

Looking ahead to 2024, Adam expresses excitement about the anticipated growth at Global Edge. His goals include not only developing his own business further but also contributing to the growth and development of other team members. Adam envisions building a collaborative and successful team, emphasizing the importance of teamwork and mutual respect within the organization.
