NES had several contractors working on a project in a politically turbulent location. During the course of their assignment, a protest against the national government broke out, soon becoming violent, putting contractors and their families in potential danger.
Such was our comprehensive knowledge of the developing situation that we put together an individual security plan for each of our contractors and their families. We assessed the situation, kept the contractors fully informed via text, email and phone calls and were in continuous contact with our local security partners.
We recognised that events were deteriorating rapidly and through prompt action we evacuated all of our contractors and their families from the country. This was completed a full 24 hours before Western governments issued evacuation notices that initiated panicked scenes, ensuring our contractors were safely evacuated before the rush.
Our contractor, a Malaysian national, suffered a detached retina as a result of a non-work related accident whilst on assignment in Angola. He required urgent assistance if he was to regain his vision.
With the support of our global medical partners, we flew our contractor to London on a doctor-escorted plane, where he was able to attend a specialist eye hospital. We also arranged for our contractor’s wife and immediate family to fly out from Malaysia to London to be with him whilst he was undergoing the operation and recovery.
With his family around him, our contractor underwent an operation to reattach his retina and made a full recovery in London, completely regaining his vision.
After living and working in Indonesia for 20 years and recently having two children, our contractor was looking to return home to the UK. He was looking for a suitable role which matched both his skillset and the needs of his family, making sure the position was located near to appropriate schooling for his children.
Our candidate worked with us exclusively to find a permanent job. We found him several options that matched his needs, located in London and Aberdeen. Furthermore, we offered him and his family a full repatriation service, including securing appropriate visa documentation. We secured passports for his two young children, booked flights and once he had decided upon Aberdeen as a location, we arranged a short term accommodation lease and suggested the best local schools.
Our candidate made a stress free and efficient transfer back to the UK with his family and is now working as a General Manager of Operations in Aberdeen.
"NES were fast, answering all the questions I had and discussing the details of the offer in a very professional way, going through every step. They guided me smoothly into the interview, giving me gave me support and advice during the whole process making it a very positive experience. I would recommend NES Global Talent 10/10."
"NES Global Talent recruited and mobilised recruited me from Australia to work on a project in Malaysia as delivery manager. They were professional and informative from the start. When I commenced work in Kuala Lumpur I had a visa issue, NES were very proactive and had this sorted out just in a matter of weeks. I have worked in the track construction industry for over 25 years and in all my years’ experience NES have been the most professional company. I will definitely be recommending them to my colleagues in the future."
"Negotiations with my employer were handled in a professional manner and contributed to both sides coming to agreement on contract terms quickly. NES has been a pleasure to deal with, staff have always been quick to return phone calls/emails and address any and all questions/concerns quickly. I’ve not experienced any issues in regards to Invoicing and associated Payments. Travel coordination has been very easy and consistent, last minute changes to bookings have never been an issue. The level of professionalism displayed by NES staff and the working relationship that has been established is something that I have not experienced with any other agency."
"Having never interacted with a recruiting consultancy, I was nervous as to what the experience would be like in trying to find a new position. From my initial discussions with NES through to package negotiations – they have been utterly brilliant. Communication has been regular and clear, they’ve been easy to deal with and are highly professional in their conduct. I felt they held both mine and the employers needs in tension well, and am excited to step into my new job. I would be very happy to recommend NESGT to colleagues or use them again in the future."
"NES visit our project site once a week to sit, communicate and socialize with the contractors which gives us an opportunity to address any concerns or issues – they always resolve all obstacles in a professional way that enhances the good relations between the contractors and clients. Furthermore, NES have showed an ethical position towards their contractors when they maintained a close communication and follow up with their contractors during the event of the wildfire at Fort McMurray, making sure that all contractors left the dangerous zone safely and without getting hurt."
"I’ve worked alongside NES for 10 years. They have been instrumental in identifying new vocational opportunities for me at a personal level, and have proven invaluable in assisting me in the new career move. Their communication is comprehensive and they were fully involved at all stages."
"NES Global Talent’s effort, timeliness and efficiency is second to none."
"It was really refreshing to talk to somebody in recruitment who took the time to explain the culture and background of the employer. It’s in total contrast to many of my experiences with recruiters who seem to play a numbers game rather than taking time to match a candidate to a role."
"The process that I went through with NES had some stand out points that made the experience both professional and engaging. The brief was good quality matching the reality of the role as discussed at interview stage. Communication was excellent with very clear instructions, interview invites and background on the interviewers. Finally the extra information around managing counter bids and transition into a new role were very reassuring and gave me confidence whilst switching roles from a company I had been employed at for over 7 years."
