INDUSTRY CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES

Oil & Gas exploration is evolving at a rapid pace, on a global scale, putting the need for specialist talent at the top of the agenda. It’s a vast, political, complex market with the emphasis on dynamic project opportunities, rather than the pre-recession security of long-term positions.

AN ONGOING GLOBAL EVOLUTION

With traditional locations like the North Sea and West Africa reducing operations, countries such as South America, Ghana, Congo and Mozambique are now also making waves.

The spotlight has also hit the Middle East, Europe, Asia and the US/Canada following a big injection into the extraction and processing of Shale and LNG. They sit alongside ultra-deep water, tar sands and FPSOs as the energy frontiers currently driving the industry into innovative new territories.



SUPPORTING NEW TALENT

By providing sponsorship visas to Non-EU nationals and seconding them to any European country, we’re able to bring in expertise from the Americas, Africa, UAE, Far East and Australia, - and keep our clients’ options open. We can able organise visas and payroll personnel anywhere in the world, making our talent pool truly international. In-house training is also making in-roads, ensuring that specialist skills are passed on before senior team members leave. Given the current skills gap, this also means that less experienced candidates are now more likely to be taken on and trained in situ.

NAVIGATING STORMY SEAS

Oil and gas are tumultuous territories. Countries like Kazakhstan, Russia, and Venezuela continue to exert greater control over their resources and Chinese firms are frequently acquiring exploration rights at record high prices.

Unrest persists in many oil-exporting nations, including Chad, Colombia, Iraq, Mauritania, Nigeria, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Syria – all, among others, on the State Department’s Travel Warning List.

Debate continues over unconventional exploration such as shale and the negotiation of environmental restrictions across Europe. To meet the challenges, we bring local knowledge with a global perspective and work within the political, geographical, social and cultural reality, not against it. We also have a bespoke, end-to-end recruitment solution to overcome the challenges of mobilising personnel into these harsh environments.
