Permanent Recruitment

Focus on the Client’s Objective and Candidate Fit

Petroplan’s recruitment consultants focus on achieving the right career outcomes for candidates and successful work placements for employers.  Our approach is agnostic towards the tenure of the placement e.g. whether it is permanent or contract, rather we align our focus on the discipline and the client’s objectives. Our account team and recruitment consultants have a portfolio of candidates who could work within a permanent role or a contract environment.

In oil and gas organisations people work in multi-discipline teams which contain a mixture of contractors and permanent staff. It is imperative our candidates are flexible enough to form great working relationships and have an affinity for the employer’s culture whether on a fixed term contact or as full time employee.

Working Towards Career Success

A key element of our methodology is not just ensuring we have a good grasp of the skills and experience required for a particular role, but also cultivating an understanding of the client’s corporate culture and the candidate personality type likely to thrive within that organisation.

We recognise that recruitment is a critical client investment; so the processes around our service delivery are all focused on retention – with an emphasis on career-minded, committed candidates.

Beyond Oil, Gas and Energy

The team is confident in the use of pre-emptive recruitment techniques to engage with exceptional candidates – both active and passive.  Candidates with the appropriate transferable skills can often be successfully transitioned to the energy sector from other industries, and the strategic use of social media has an increasingly important role to play in our interaction with sought after industry talent.

We are able to fulfil search mandates effectively and quickly, through the combined efficacy of our wide-reaching global candidate network and experienced in-house specialists, who are highly trained in the process of candidate mapping and market analysis to identify appropriate targets.

In disciplines that are coming of age within oil, gas and energy employers such as digital, IT, ERP and business process roles, it is not unusual to look outside the current talent community residing in oil and gas.

Our classic areas of industry recruitment expertise include roles in these areas:

  • Engineering
  • Project Services, Commissioning and Operations
  • Construction
  • HSEQ
  • Marine and Subsea
  • Subsurface
  • Supply Chain
  • Wells and Drilling
  • Commercial roles, such as IT, Finance, HR and Sales

Demand for new disciplines:

  • Digital Oilfield and Analytics
  • Software Development
  • ERP specialism within SAP and Oracle for example
  • Business Analysts and Management Consulting

With our background in contract recruitment, verification of qualifications and attention to the necessary compliance to industry standards is second nature to our business, so employers can be assured of quality applicants.
