Our Recruitment Solution
We appointed a dedicated account manager and support team for the client and have supported their workforce needs throughout various project stages - from consent and planning right through to construction and final commissioning. Targeting our established energy talent networks in conjunction with marketing campaigns we have sourced and located the required offshore personnel with ease.
Whilst many of our candidates have had prior experience directly in the offshore wind sector, we were also able to locate and secure candidates from other energy fields which offer transferable skills, such as offshore oil and gas engineers.
Our consultants are backed by assignment support and travel teams who take care of all contractor onboarding requirements - from arranging work permits / visas and transport to arranging medicals.
We have an in-house finance team spanning the globe, co-ordinating the payroll process
seamlessly to ensure that contractors are paid on time, in the right currency, with all applicable taxes applied.
As the preferred partner for our client’s contractor resource project services we have developed a detailed understanding of their culture and working practices. Our lengthy tenure has enabled us to build strong relationships with key contacts within the HR and Procurement teams and we look forward to continuing our partnership on further project workforce needs.
