Our Client Services

Our global recruitment, mobilization and payrolling services are tailored to specific regional requirements and enhanced by the expertise of our teams on the ground who understand and foresee the unique project challenges that may arise within a particular territory.

We speak the language of the oil, gas and energy industry and have a genuine understanding of client requirements; ensuring we can be both the brand guardians for our clients while reducing time-to-hire cycles. The flexibility of our business model means our clients can outsource their recruitment function entirely or complement their internal capabilities with our services.

Our network of skilled professionals is constantly evolving and expanding through our innovative use of social media, online advertising and database technology building. We build engagement with millions not thousands of potential candidates  – and organically via referrals and recommendations from existing clients and candidates in territories where word of mouth is still the best way to connect with talent.
