Recruitment Solutions and Engineering Jobs in South Korea
We've placed staff onto Korea's largest fabrication yards
NES Fircroft has been operational in South Korea since 2010, and has two offices in country, in Geoje and Seoul. We are 100% locally owned and manage over 50 contractors in-country. Our offices are staffed with local experts who have used their market expertise and candidate reach to provide staff to the three largest shipyards in the world.
Staffing South Korea's energy infrastructure
Many of the planet’s biggest and most pioneering energy ventures begin their life in South Korea, an essential hub to the world’s fabrication industry. Our Korea recruitment team was integral to supplying staff to the world’s first FLNG venture, Prelude, and through our dedicated global mobility team we mobilised volume numbers of contractors throughout the project’s various phases across Malaysia and Australia too.
Our team will source personnel for FEED, Engineering, Construction, Commissioning, and Hook-Up Installation activities, on a contract staffing and permanent (direct) hire basis. As the global energy market continues to divest, we have also helped businesses in Korea to secure expertise talent for manufacturing offshore wind turbines.

We’ve mobilised Canadian expatriates to work on specialist Korean turbine manufacturing projects in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic, and we’ve leveraged our global expatriate talent network to bring HSE expertise (NEBOSH certified) to several fabrication sites across the country. Whether you need long-term D-9 visas for your shipbuilding or industrial machinery manufacturing workforce, and F-3 visas for their dependents, or short-term C-4 visas, our assignment support team is well versed in navigating the legal immigration landscape to keep your multi-national workforces compliant.
We place technical specialists in a huge range of roles including, but not limited to:
- Drilling and Completions
