Oil and Gas Recruitment in South Africa
Serving Sub Saharan Africa
Petroplan Sub Saharan Africa (SSA) has operated out of Cape Town since 2012. The office is a regional hub for Petroplan’s activities in Sub-Saharan Africa and for oil and gas recruitment in South Africa. The office benefits from unlimited support and resources from Petroplan’s network of regional offices in other key energy hubs, so it is a local service with global support.
Our South African Services
Local Staff and Knowledge
The office is staffed entirely by South Africans; therefore we can communicate in the local languages. We also have the regional experience to understand and foresee the unique challenges that may arise within an African territory; so our clients have peace of mind. Petroplan SSA tailors its service delivery closely to local market conditions and the company is fully committed to the government’s Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment programme. Therefore we are able to deliver a truly African service in terms of business culture.
The Cape Town team has broad collective industry experience both onshore and offshore – and has cultivated an extensive referral network and local candidate database to complement Petroplan’s central global database.
Reaching African Talent for the Oil and Gas Industry
This network of industry-specific talent is especially extended through our strategic use of specialised recruitment software, highly targeted job boards and the Petroplan website – because employers need proactive engagement with both passive and active candidates within the industry. Where appropriate, Petroplan can also assist in the transition of candidates with the required skills and experience from other industry areas.
Our services support single role searches or full recruitment campaigns. Many of our industry-leading clients have partnered with us for well over a decade; often as a sole or preferred supplier. The scope of services required by new clients consistently increases the longer they work with us; this speaks volumes about our customer satisfaction levels.
To reiterate, Petroplan’s key capabilities in Sub-Saharan Africa extend to:
- Specialist recruitment for the Mining, Engineering and Construction industry, in parallel with our core areas of focus; namely Oil, Gas and Energy;
- Permanent and contract recruitment for both local and international assignments;
- A flexible working model supporting large-scale or single role procurement campaigns.
- We cover all industry disciplines, across the full spectrum of managerial, technical and support professionals.
