 Meet the team

Director – Energy

Adam Carabetta

The journey began in my hometown of Perth amongst the backdrop of the boom in WA’s Energy & Resources industry. After graduating from Murdoch University with a double major in Entrepreneurship and Marketing, I just knew that I wanted to start my career in something that involved my ability to sell, interest in entrepreneurship, and environment. So it made sense to join a startup, building new business, and recruiting in Australia’s Energy market.

After a couple years with Crest Personnel, finding out that I could make this a pretty rewarding and enjoyable career, I decided to venture abroad at a young age and bring my career overseas. Hydrogen Group, a FTSE listed organisation picked me up as a Senior Consultant in their London headquarters to work remotely building new markets with key Oil and Energy players in Southeast Asia.

After a challenging but amazing year in London, I was offered the opportunity to relocate to Singapore where shortly after I was promoted to Team Leader. After 3 years with them, I was then headhunted to join Drake International, one of the recruitment industry’s longest standing brand. I came on board as a Manager to turn around their flagging Energy business in Asia.

After a tough but enjoyable 3 years with them, I was able to fulfill a long term ambition and start my own search firm, Formative Search. FS is a boutique search firm which genuinely wants to help businesses and candidates find real value in their recruitment challenges.

All my career has been within the Energy industry in Asia and over time has slowly transformed away from the conventional Oil & Gas industry into a broader Energy spectrum. Now my business is working within Renewables, Energy Solutions & Cleantech.
