Oil and Gas Recruitment in Mozambique

Compliant Recruitment and Contractor Mobilisation for Mozambique

Petroplan is uniquely placed as an oil, gas and energy specialist recruiter to compliantly provide oil and gas recruitment in Mozambique amongst its recruitment peers and fulfil the local employment regulations required for expatriate personnel to work and live in the region to fulfil oil and gas project obligations. Petroplan is fully registered in this territory.

Whilst we have experience of working in many locations across the world all countries present their own local challenges, be it legislative, health and safety, political or cultural. We are particularly aware of Mozambique’s onerous legislative requirements, and we are confident that our recruitment, mobilisation and payrolling solutions give our clients not only access to exceptional local and expat talent – but also to the appropriate visas and work permits required for the workforce.

Petroplan Looks After Compliance

We are very conscious of the impact that non-compliance can have on a client’s project in Mozambique – not to mention the financial penalties – and we have invested considerable time and resources in planning solutions that will protect an employer from any such risk – through careful one to one in-country consultation with a range of local lawyers and manpower specialists plus active engagement with Mozambique’s Ministry of Labour.

In Mozambique, Petroplan is able to engage additional in-country staff in support of defined  and agreed employment requirements. We understand organisations need to meet the national staffing ratios that currently stand at around one expatriate worker to every ten local employees; So being available to manage the local recruitment to fulfil the experience gaps with expatriate and balance the local employment requirements is something Petroplan is prepared for.

Petroplan’s investment in Mozambique has been thoroughly researched, with the market for natural gas growing within the region. We appreciate there are two sectors; firstly the large gas-based industrial users where gas is a major feedstock or manufacturing process used for large amounts of process heat. The second sector is broadly described as small and medium enterprises (SMEs), small industrial and commercial uses of natural gas for process heat.

In essence,  and sourcing for local recruitment throughout the upstream thorough to the downstream requirements of transporting gas from the Rovuma basin and elsewhere.
