NES Fircroft’s unrivalled candidate reach ensures your talent acquisition has a competitive advantage.
Through a global office network exceeding 80 physical offices in 45 countries, the breadth and reach of our talent networks is unparalleled in the technical recruitment market. Our international recruitment teams support hiring managers at every stage of the recruitment process. We listen to you, provide pragmatic consultancy for a viable outcome and develop a truly comprehensive, tailored brief, no matter how niche or specific your hiring requirement may be.
Getting staff to an energy project in a remote location can be challenging and legally complex, especially when dealing with an expatriate workforce containing many different nationalities.
In addition to our recruitment expertise, NES Fircroft offers industry-leading contractor mobility support services, including orchestrating their travel needs and comprehensive insurances, and delivering in-country orientations to ensure they are supported at every phase of a project.
The right leader can dramatically alter your company’s growth and future innovation. A company’s culture is largely driven from the top down; hiring a new, critical member of your Board therefore is a pivotal and potentially risky time. Leaders must possess agility, courage and the tenacity to address complex management challenges that prevent companies from moving forward, whilst keeping stakeholders onside with shared corporate vision and values.
Leveraging our global talent pool, we’ll find C-Suite personnel with shared responsibility and purpose to innovate your Board and secure your succession planning.
