Case Study - Offshore Wind

Global mobility and rapid recruitment for the Hornsea 2 project

Our client’s 1.3GW offshore windfarm comprises 165 wind turbines and will help power over 1.4 million homes with low-cost, clean energy

Our client had a Danish team in close proximity to Hornsea 1, and wished to use their expertise for the manufacturing and on-site consultation of the offshore wind turbines for the second project phase.

The turbines for the wind farm were being fabricated in Singapore. This meant relocating the specialist team from Denmark to Singapore, during which the client would need full global mobility support for the team, including support with organising applicable visas and compliant contractor payroll.

Our Recruitment Solution

Providing superior service and ensuring legislation compliance is a key priority for our team. We worked closely with client’s HR team in Denmark to advise regarding local Singaporean regulations in relation to employment, payroll and tax. Our recruitment and assignment
support teams moved quickly to access, mobilise and deploy skilled personnel.

We assigned a dedicated Account Manager from our Singapore office to handle all contractor logistics. Our Singapore office is located in the heart of a fabrication hub with ample experience in staffing facilities with local and expatriate personnel.
