Background: From 2015, Petroplan engaged in providing the recruitment, mobilization and payrolling of professionals across operational roles from commissioning through to engineering vacancies. These roles carried out the early investigations on-site such as undertaking seismic studies through to extracting oil.

Solution focus: Compliance
Petroplan in this project committed to the provision of more than just a menu of recruitment services rather the organization partnered with the operator to ensure contractors were verified in terms of eligibility, safety and qualifications. The support around the mobilization of the teams included the organization of contractor orientations and issuing pre-assignment guidelines which covered health and safety as well as technical duties. The payrolling element of this project was in-depth to ensure accurate payment and invoicing. Petroplan’s finance team dedicated resource and technology to process timesheets and provide exception reporting for time and attendance.

Outcomes: Team Project Delivery
The Canadian contractor network which the local Petroplan team has developed means the operator has quick access to experienced oil industry professionals. The contractors’ trust in Petroplan motivates them to get on with the job as they have no doubt they will be paid on time and their mobilization will be smooth. Our recruiters with this close proximity to the employment network means they can organize the right teams for a more harmonious work environment on site. Our recruiters visit the camps to see contractors and meet the employer’s managers regularly to check on contractor welfare and to receive updates on behalf of the employer to investigate any concerns. The result is a great team of people delivering on the project for the operator.
