Specialist energy talent acquisition group Petroplan has expanded into Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, as the business strengthens its presence in North America.
The move is an important strategic decision for Petroplan, with Newfoundland being a large, mineral-rich province with a sparse population. With the abundance of resources across Eastern Canada, there are multiple opportunities for growth in mining and energy, particularly hydroelectric, hydrogen and wind power.
Leading the company’s expansion into Newfoundland is David Jerrett, a newly appointed Business Consultant in Canada. David’s role is to address immediate business requirements and provide talent expertise to support the fast-growing energy market.
David said: “Our main aim, regardless of location, is always to provide high-quality services for our clients.
“The mining sector in Newfoundland is currently booming. With a global reach and over 17 years’ experience in the Canadian energy market, we are confident that Petroplan is in the best position to support both existing and potential clients to make the most of the resource and project-rich provinces in Eastern Canada.”
This strategic business expansion aligns with Petroplan’s recent developments in the United States, with a series of new appointments and promotions in Houston, Texas. The growth in Canada is supported by global expertise from Petroplan’s technology team in the US.
Christopher Honeyman Brown, CEO of Petroplan, added: "At Petroplan, we invest and expand where we see the best opportunities to deliver exceptional client solutions. Our recent investment into the Eastern Canadian energy market presents an exciting opportunity to work with new and existing clients and provide them with the calibre and quality of talent they need to deliver their projects, and that sets Petroplan apart from other energy recruiters.”
The Group provides expertise to support and supply international energy and infrastructure companies and EPCs by providing white-collar, intermediate, contract and permanent engineering jobs to plug the gap with global contractors.
Beyond North America, Petroplan's specialist expertise in the energy sector extends to Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. The Group has been delivering high-quality candidates to clients for over 45 years.
