Newly appointed regional recruitment manager for sub Saharan Africa to spearhead growth

Petroplan has become globally renowned as a trusted partner in recruitment.

Petroplan’s proven track record of recruiting and placing exceptional industry professionals with leading organisations means they have a great reputation to maintain. Their specialist expertise and broad candidate network enables clients to rapidly procure the best people available for essential roles, in an increasingly competitive marketplace.

With this in mind, it was with great care and consideration that Lindsay Sher was approached. Petroplan defines its people as, Energy Talent Explorers, so it was essential to source a Recruitment Manager for the Cape Town office who embodied this ethos, and would keep the same high standards that had been set out across the other regional offices across the world.
Lindsay Sher, newly appointed Petroplan Regional Recruitment Manager for the Sub-Saharan African region is to front a bid to increase Petroplan’s visibility and impact within the region, and will expand the company’s local South African recruitment team. Ultimately, she will be responsible for the company’s growth, development and profitability within Africa’s Sub-Saharan region.

Lindsay has 12 years’ recruitment experience; she previously held the position, Head of Commercial & Engineering Recruitment, at one of South Africa’s largest permanent recruitment companies. Andrew Speers, managing director at Petroplan, describes Lindsay Sher as possessing “an in-depth knowledge of South Africa’s recruitment industry and [having] a demonstrable track record in driving business growth.”  He continues to say “there is a significant opportunity to support Sub-Saharan Africa’s emerging energy market, and Lindsay’s experience will be invaluable as we look to strengthen our position as a specialist recruiter in the region.”

Ms Sher is delighted to be joining the Petroplan team, she adds

“people are a vital asset in every business sector, so this is an exciting opportunity to take my experience and apply it to a new industry.”

Ms Sher recognises that multiple clients and candidates trust Petroplan as their recruitment partner of choice. Through years of carefully considered operations, the company has earned a positive reputation because of the professional relationships it has built and the high quality of results that have been delivered. Ms Sher reveals her goal is to build on the fantastic foundations already in place, drawing on Petroplan’s global network in order to fully realise the company’s potential in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Petroplan are perfectly placed to embrace the South African commitment to localisation, their extensive marketing resources can be used to connect local talent with national professionals. With their offices in the key oil and gas hub of Cape Town paired with Ms Sher’s innovative vision, Petroplan is also in a good position to expand into locations such as Mozambique.
