Beyond Recruitment Provision

How can you source the very best international talent for your oil, gas, chemical, energy, marine and construction projects across the globe and get the specialised recruitment support you need throughout the project lifecycle?

Due to the challenging economics of your sector, you require highly specialised technical knowledge to address every phase of your complex, large-scale projects. Of course, the answer is simple. You need to recruit the best international talent. Often, however, the reality is a little more complicated.

More than just recruitment

When outsourcing international talent for your projects, you face a range of issues, including logistics, local labour laws and legislation. At the same time, you need to ensure that you have just the right talent – wherever and whenever you need it – to ensure every phase of the project is completed on time, on budget, and in line with project specifications and local and international standards.

As a result, more and more oil, gas and chemical companies are finding their needs extend beyond the capabilities of most recruitment providers. Although they need the best talent, they also need effective and efficient recruitment support that is essential to ensure the timely delivery of projects. So what’s the answer?

Partnership versus simple recruitment provision

Today, companies need a more sophisticated, holistic approach to talent acquisition. They require not just recruitment providers, but recruitment partners able to go the extra mile. That’s why, at SGS, we act as a qualified and experienced partner you can trust to understand your requirements throughout the project life cycle.
