Recruitment Solutions and Engineering Jobs in Brunei

We’ve placed staff onto Brunei’s largest energy projects and chemical processing facilities.

Brunei Recruitment Local Jobs

NES Fircroft opened its office in Brunei in 2013, to further complement our already broad Asia office network. Based in the country’s capital, Bandar Seri Begawan, we provide contract staffing and permanent hire services, and have placed both expatriates and locals onto construction, drilling, decommissioning and rejuvenation projects.

Our local recruitment team has spent the last decade supporting businesses across the oil and gas spectrum, including EPCs, integrated oil companies and downstream refineries.

Our recruitment expertise doesn’t stop at supplying people to maintain and operate traditional oil and gas facilities – we’ve also sourced personnel for solar parks and helped our energy clients to lower their emissions by connecting them with the right technical talent, including supporting H2S chemical trials on offshore rigs.

Brunei Recruitment Experience

From supplying personnel to man marine vessels, to sourcing expertise to run carbon capture and storage emissions reduction projects, our recruitment experience is vast.

Our Brunei team currently manages 100+ contractors. We’re committed to supporting the local business development directive which means we need to supply a ratio of at least 65% local personnel on the projects we staff. Our local placement experience includes placing large teams of engineers onto the ORMC project and placing over 40 locals into permanent hire jobs with a single full stream energy provider.

We’re not a typical recruitment agency; we provide a premium, reliable service and our reputation in the local tight-knit Brunei market precedes us. The businesses that we support benefit from our on-the-ground service and the face-to-face interaction we bring to their contract workforce.

Whilst drilling expertise is a specialism for our operation, we place staff across the entire Brunei energy spectrum. Solar is the biggest renewable energy venture making waves in diversifying the local energy market, being pushed by regulatory bodies and operators alike. There are also many new exploration oil wells due to start operation next year – our developed candidate networks are equipped to staff both ventures.

Our regional assignment support teams are on-hand to take care of all contractor logistics.

Whilst we have a wealth of experience in hiring nationals from Brunei, we can leverage our wider South East Asian and global office network to source talent from overseas when required, sponsoring workers’ visas and work permits on a short term (SAWP) or long term (LPA) basis. We’ve engaged local personnel specifically to shadow expatriates on drilling and maintenance projects so that they benefit from hands-on training and can upskill their ability. For compliance purposes, we also coordinate local business reporting and submit reports to the Labour department and Department of Energy.

Our set-up enables us to payroll contractors in-country, and we’ve helped many businesses to consolidate their payroll by using our service. When enlisting the support of NES Fircroft, businesses can rest assured that they’re accessing recruitment expertise from a truly global company with the expertise and experience on-the-ground to thrive in the local economy.
