Our Services

1. Permanent recruitment

A dedicated recruitment specialist works closely with our client to ensure we understand the organisational and technical details of any new assignment, and how these should influence our strategy and mode of delivery.  We take a bigger picture view by also considering a candidate’s potential fit within the cultural climate of the client’s organisation, as retention is as important to us as placement.  
Petroplan’s permanent team is confident in the use of proactive recruitment techniques to identify exceptional candidates engaged within the industry – both active and passive.  With sensitive and intelligent relationship building, passive candidates will often consider a change of career.  Similarly, candidates with the appropriate transferable skills can often be successfully transitioned to the energy sector from other industries.

2. Contract recruitment

Petroplan understands that contract requirements often need to be filled urgently so that project goals are not compromised.  We can identify contractors with whom we are already connected for rapid mobilisation, in addition to the hundreds currently engaged with us across the world.  

Our global spread of offices facilitates a consistent level of responsiveness wherever in the world a requirement may arise, and our teams are just as experienced in the placement and mobilisation of nationals as they are in working with expatriate personnel.

3. Contractor management

Our contractor management service is characterised by a uniquely personalised approach that resonates with our contractors, resulting in many spending the majority of their career working with Petroplan.  Our support package is designed to minimise administrative distractions, allowing them to focus on their assignment.  
Key elements of the service include:

- Visa, passport and work permit applications
- Travel arrangements, airport transfers and accommodation assistance
- Pre-assignment and periodical medicals, inoculations and testing
- Client policy counselling
- Insurances
- Medivac and security information
- 24-hour emergency assistance

Contractor safety is a key priority; Petroplan has an unblemished record of contractor safety, and wherever possible our contractor agreements mirror our clients’ contractual terms to ensure full compliance with client health and safety specifications.

4. Payrolling

Petroplan’s unrivalled reputation for prompt and accurate administration of multi-currency domestic and international payrolls is an additional factor in the high retention ratios amongst our contractors.
