  • Client’s Challenge: The client won a five year contract to provide hook-up, commissioning, maintenance and modifications services for an oilfield development. They needed 900 immediate hires as well as 400+ onshore personnel.

    Solution: NES developed a comprehensive recruitment strategy, with a lean methodology that removed manual processes to increase efficiency. We immediately mobilised a team of experienced recruiters to work alongside the client’s HR team and identified a pool of over 3,000 potential candidates. We then vetted all candidates and held assessment open days to test and interview the best offshore team. We consulted on technologies to ensure smooth communications between departments and to improve their VMS.

    Outcome: Targets were met with 100% compliance. We achieved zero missed mobilisations – which on this scale is unheard of. We provided significant cost reductions and have saved the client over £1,700,000 against market rates. The client is happy with our services and we continue to meet their staffing needs for this project. 

  • Client’s challenge: Following a company re-organisation and relocation, the client required 60 highly skilled engineers within a timeframe of 6 months. These roles were business-critical and needed skills that were scarce in the marketplace.

    Solution: NES provided the client with a team of dedicated discipline-specific consultants to source the personnel. From being discipline-specific, our recruiters know their markets and can quickly build a skilled talent pool of candidates. We also created an innovative multi-channel solution, including a dedicated recruitment microsite and a social media campaign designed to drive candidate traffic to the job adverts, in conjunction with attending trade exhibitions. 

    Outcome: Accepted offers against all 60 roles were met by the deadline (with one week to spare!). The microsite became the go-to place to engage candidates, and significantly raised awareness of the client's brand. From this success, the client enlisted our support once again to provide a further 60 hires.
