Listening to Employers in the Oil and Gas Industry

Finding the answers to the questions our candidates and clients want to know

It is tempting to subscribe to the latest market report produced by management consultants and membership organisations. And we do, but we also like to speak directly with the people who are making hiring decisions everyday. This employer market opinion is critical for tracking a market which is notoriously unpredictable from an employment perspective. We understand employer challenges and as a result we can work on their behalf day in and day out.

We produce reports such as the Energy Talent Explorer Review based on the thoroughly researched views of industry decision makers. Petroplan ask the questions that their peers and professionals working in the industry find useful. For example, we look at answers to questions such as:

  • What’s the oil price recovery outlook from companies across the world?
  • What’s the long term impact of the oil price on employment?
  • Which oil, gas and energy jobs should you get in the future?
  • What are top 5 things employers worry about in the oil, gas and energy sector?

Benchmarking for Employer Market Opinion

At Petroplan, we are in an enviable position with discipline-specific recruitment teams and robust reporting technology so we can provide our clients with indepth knowledge on data sets such as

  • locations
  • salary and benefit packages
  • mobility of certain skill sets

This kind of information can be presented in formats that are most relevant to the client.

Also with our online marketing reach, we can poll our audience for their opinions on topics in real-time.


The marketing team at Petroplan is adept at designing and running market surveys to assess market sentiment. This affords us insight into the candidate and employer market place. With access to millions of oil and gas professionals using social channels we can reach markets where direct employers may not have the time or resources to canvass.

Recent surveys include our Talent Insight Index that measures candidate sentiment amongst oil and gas professionals. In 2016 the key finding was the impact of the downturn on loyalty to the industry from experienced industry workers.
