A Centre of Excellence for Recruitment and Business Services

Petroplan is head quartered in the market-town of Guildford in the South of England. This office is the centre of Petroplan’s core business services including IT, HR, Financial services, Payrolling, Bids and Tenders, HR and many of our contractor mobilisation team. The business has operated from this location for over three decades.

The office is located across the road from Guildford mainline rail station and within walking distance of the town centre. If you are travelling by road, Guildford is within easy access of the M25 and A3 road networks.

The business environment is very professional and affords the space and resources our talented business specialists need to facilitate our efficient operations.

In 2014, Petroplan opened an office in Waterloo, London. This location makes reaching our offices for many clients, candidates and of course our people more accessible within a few strides from Waterloo’s mainline station.

Our modern office houses our largest recruitment team who come from a diverse mix of countries and backgrounds making the environment lively and collaborative.  The office has a social buzz as our teams get to know each other outside of work, making the most of our central London situation.

We are a ten minute walk from the cultural destination of the South Bank and if you enjoy a different lunch everyday, why not take a trip down to Lower Marsh street and taste the foodie delights of the international street food market.

The North Sea is where Petroplan began providing experienced oil and gas professionals for the offshore industry. 40 years on, our office in Aberdeen is still in operation and is situated on the Regent Quay. It is in easy reach of the city centre and has a great outlook over the harbour.

Although in recent years, the oil and gas employment market in Aberdeen has been affected by the impact of a falling oil price, Petroplan has been committed to keeping an office in this location to support its local and international clients and candidates.

If you don’t see a current job that you feel is appropriate please send us your CV using the email [email protected] as we are always looking for talented individuals to join on our team.
