Here to break new ground.

Our consultants have access to a unique pool of proactively sourced candidates, building relationships in order to continuously develop our extensive database of  hard to find, highly skilled professional technical contractors. Our consultants understand that speed and process is key.

By understanding our contractors’ specialist skill sets and aspirations, alongside client requirements, we only get in touch when a job suits both parties. Our clients have exclusive access to our wide network of niche and specialist talent.

A flexible, autonomous approach.

Our dedicated Contractor Team offers a flexible range of contractor solutions and global mobilisation. They’ll manage everything or just fill the gaps, from payroll and immigration to accommodation and driving licences.

A note on sponsorship:
If there’s a suitable contract position available, we can sponsor overseas nationals for the role, subject to the relevant Codes of Practice.

Comprehensive global mobilisation services

Our global offices in key areas around the world give our dedicated Mobilisation teams the ability to offer a broad range of support services for the mobilisation, assignment period and de-mobilisation of all contractors.

We are here to consult on what you need to do prior to mobilisation, sharing our extensive knowledge of other geographies and different cultures. We are here to make sure the transition into a new territory and job role is a seamless one. 

We  also help you to manage challenging situations for our candidates upon arrival  in a new country, so they can  feel confident upon starting work when expected. 

Over 40% of our contractors have extended or remobilised onto new projects with Spencer Ogden more than once.

Our international knowledge, high-risk support and compliant solutions provide the pillars for an exceptional level of service which, in turn, allows us to offer a bespoke end-to-end solution to meet our client’s' needs.

High-risk locations

We have invested in providing our clients with support in high-risk locations before travel, during assignment and de-mobilisation post assignment. Working with our partners, Ace and Red24, we provide 24/7 worldwide support for our contractors, which includes the ability to monitor contractor’s locations and provide constant security updates relevant to their assignment.

The features we can offer in high risk locations include but are not limited to:

  • Pre-travel risk assessments

  • Live travel monitoring

  • 24/7 emergency support

  • Local security support

  • Insurance

  • Travel support 

Supporting international travel arrangements.

Spencer Ogden is supported by a dedicated industry specialist travel agency that assists our Mobilisation Team with all international travel. This includes flights, car hire, hotels, serviced accommodation and any additional requirements. 

A profile on each contractor requiring mobilisation and de-mobilisation is created to ensure our clients' travel policies and requirements are always adhered to.

Our travel specialists work closely with hotel chains globally to obtain exclusive rates, from which our clients can benefit. 

Prior to the mobilisation of high volumes of contractors to large projects, our travel support agency will research the local region to obtain the best rates in local travel support including serviced apartments and car hire.


 We understand that our clients engage us to remove the burden of time-consuming research into local compliance, and to ensure the smooth and compliant running of their assignments. We have a dedicated legal and compliance team who ensure all contractor contracts are in line with local legal regulations.

With links to multiple international background screening organisations, we have the ability to perform pre-mobilisation screening on all contractors globally. Checks can vary from local criminal background checks to international criminal database and sanctions screening and will be tailored to our client requirements.

Country Specific Knowledge

We understand that moving to a new location is unfamiliar to contractors who may not have travelled previously. In order to make relocating or long periods of time away from home as simple as possible, we provide all contractors with access to global country specific information via an online system or app.

The information includes cultural practices, emergency service information, weather guidance and local key information. Having access to this information allows contractors to focus on their assignments without having to spend time researching their new location.
