Contact Us About Recruitment Services in Asia

NES Fircroft has been operational in Asia since 1995, recruiting technical and engineering staff across the Oil & Gas, Chemicals, Power & Renewables, Life Sciences and Construction industries. 

Our established 20+ office network stretches across the entire continent, from Japan, China, Taiwan and South Korea in North Asia, to Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei and the Philippines in the Southeast.

It’s vital that businesses partner with a local provider to secure their hiring. Our office locations across Asia are staffed by experienced local consultants, are tasked with the development of local databases, relationship building and networking with local personnel and service providers. This regional strategy ensures that we are experts in our local market, our local talent pools, and develop a true understanding of local culture and practices. As a result, NES Fircroft has become a valued partner to energy companies of all types and sizes across Asia. Our value proposition separates us apart from our competition and as such, we hold key workforce service agreements with many of the region’s major contractors and sub-contractors.

Executive Search

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.
