Sandeep (Sandy) Chaggar is a Senior Associate working across the oil and gas, infrastructure and mining sectors.
Sandeep is based at Cripps Sears’ headquarters in London
Sandy joined Cripps Sears & Partners after having gained eight years’ experience with two other oil and gas executive search consultancies. She now has extensive experience of recruiting across the value chain and has helped in the delivery of assignments globally.
Sandy was born and raised in East Africa and moved to the UK to further her education, graduating with a Marketing degree from Oxford Brookes University. After a spell working as a gemologist, grading and selling diamonds and gemstones to the jewellery trade, Sandy moved into recruitment following recommendations from family members working in the sector.
Cripps Sears offers a truly global service. We have placed candidates in these locations.
‘Seen as an individual’
Familiar with Cripps Sears because she was already working in the energy executive search market, Sandy says she was prompted to move there because “I was hearing good things about the company and the way people build their careers there. Its size meant it could offer me the opportunity to be seen as an individual – which is the way CSP looks at clients, too.”
Outside the office, Sandy enjoys walking and international travelling to “different places, different cultures”. As a former competitive swimmer, she is still keen on the sport but admits she has less time to spend on it nowadays.
