Recruitment Expertise in Thailand

We provide staffing services for Thailand’s energy and infrastructure industries, including obtaining visas and work permits for your expatriate workers.

Recruitment Services Local Jobs

NES Fircroft has been operational in Thailand for over 15 years and now has two offices in-country, located in Bangkok and Chonburi.

We have over 30 members of staff managing the daily logistics of 400+ contractors, of which over 100 are expatriates. Our long tenure in-country means we have built and nurtured a local engineering talent pool, and our global reach as a company means we can bring in talent from overseas when required, compliantly.

In Thailand, our experience is broad, and we provide recruitment services to hundreds of business across Upstream, Fabrication & Oilfield Services, Downstream & Petrochemicals, Power & Renewables, Manufacturing, Rail and Infrastructure.

Our teams offer English and Thai speakers and support all functions of the Thailand visa and work permit process, offering full in-house capability, assignment support, payroll, travel and logistics with the compliance of all manpower legislation for both expatriates and local hires.

Staffing Thailand's Critical Infrastructure

Our fabrication project support is second to none; our staffing solutions have facilitated the construction for major FPSO topsides, drilling and wellhead platforms used in some of Asia’s largest offshore facilities.

We have also supported some of the region’s largest wind farms, chemical process facilities, rail projects and power plants. The strength of our talent pools is renowned and consequently we have Master Vendor agreements with several Thai-based EPCs.

Mobilising personnel into Thailand

If you have a business set-up in Thailand and are looking to mobilise expatriates but don’t have the manpower, time or expertise in your business to apply for their visas and work permits, NES Fircroft can help. Through a thorough understanding of Thailand Visa and Work Permit application process and years of in-country experience we ensure full compliance with all immigration requirements, managing the Thai visa / work permit application and submission to either BOI or WP3, depending on the contractor’s work location. Our team can also apply on behalf of operators for DMF permits, and manage applications to the Thailand Ministry of Labour for the non-immigrant type B visa. We have coordinated visas and work permits on behalf of our clients for several years, including a recent multi-billion USD$ greenfield project where we have applied for over 100 on behalf of our client, under their business license.

Whether you’re looking for a one-off Board level hire for your wind project, a team of engineers for your fabrication yard, or to consolidate your staffing providers for your next rail project, our team can help.

Employer of Record services

We have also provided Employer of Record (EOR) services to several overseas energy and infrastructure companies to allow them to operate in Thailand compliantly, including major oil & gas and wind businesses from Norway, and private rail companies from Canada. Whilst our clients don’t have an entity in Thailand, with our support, this doesn’t stop them from being able to launch projects in-country, staffed with local workers. Our team will orchestrate shadow payroll in-country to remain compliant with contractors’ home country requirements, no matter where they’re from. Our support teams will also run ongoing 90-day reporting cycles for all expatriates, to retain legislative compliance.
