Senior Oil and Gas Management

Networking with Oil and Gas Career Builders

Petroplan has recruited on behalf of the oil and gas industry’s employers for senior oil and gas management since its inception over forty years ago. The focus of Petroplan is to find, place and support experienced professionals who often then go on to build their own teams.

We can help if an employer has an interim requirement for a senior manager, for a longer term contract or a permanent position.

Reaching and Engaging with Passive Candidates

This level of talent is often referred to as being in the passive candidate market. The professional is likely to be working in a role already in oil and gas senior management and not actively looking at new career opportunities.  These people are often the most sought after potential candidates as they are stable in their careers and likely respected in their business and field.

Our recruitment teams will use their senior networks to map the appropriate talent in the industry. Often using word of mouth such as referrals from trusted industry peers. However, sometimes it is useful to use community tools such as LinkedIn to get in touch with people outside of a network. However, LinkedIn is not a magic tool and it is only powerful in the hands of recruitment businesses who utilise the tool to its full capability.

Using the Power of the Petroplan Brand on Social Networks

We earn engagement on LinkedIn through sharing great content and responding to the community to build brand integrity. It is important to ensure your approach engages interest not suspicion  from a senior passive candidate network. As a specialist in oil and gas recruitment, our brand engagement measurement by LinkedIn is very high and above that of our recruitment peers within the oil and gas recruitment community.

Petroplan also are committed to providing the industry with regular reports, surveys and interesting content. We even run competitions and quizzes. By investing in content marketing, we not only provide knowledge but we also keep in touch with this senior community. We are active across social networks such as Twitter and Facebook  to keep our brand relevant in many online places.

Assessing Cultural Fit

When we receive the client brief we will explain our likely methodology and approach. We can support internal or HR teams with the assignment. Our consultants work in partnership with the people experts in your business to ensure the best cultural fit. This approach ensures we are mindful of the organisation’s employer brand when assessing the suitability of a candidate. We can score applicants against the employer’s competency model if so required.

Recruitment Process Management

Petroplan’s consultants act as the brand guardians for your organisation. This is especially important during the recruitment process for senior appointments. A poor candidate experience can influence the employer’s reputation and affect commercial operations. We will manage the communications from initial confidential conversations to interview, offer and regret.
