Transformative staffing solutions

In addition to our impressive oil and gas track record, we have demonstrable experience in supplying professionals to Norway’s emerging battery technology market, hydrogen and ammonia plants, plus providing the shipping industry with the talent it needs to explore alternative fuel sources.

We are a proud member of the Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) and have a wealth of experience in staffing major onshore & offshore wind projects across the planet. Our global office network exceeds 45 countries - this set-up is complemented by our vast offshore wind project portfolio and means that we offer a pre-qualified offshore wind talent pipeline and can source and mobilise experienced personnel from other geographies, such as the United Kingdom, into Norway. Our assignment support, compliance and legal teams collaborate to ensure that personnel are mobilised efficiently and compliantly.

Along with supporting clients with their energy transition, we’re equipped to take businesses through digital transformations in their energy companies. For over 20 years, NES Fircroft has built-up a breadth of local market knowledge and a global talent network within the IT sector; providing skills to enhance technical developments, network infrastructures, IT operations, databases plus more.

We can source and payroll temporary talent for your energy projects

NES Fircroft can directly hire individuals offering a full pay-as-you-earn (PAYE) model to contract personnel who do not wish to engage via Limited Company. All statutory costs, income tax, national insurance, apprentice levys, holiday pay and pensions are administered and remitted through NES Fircroft’s in-house payroll team. Our finance experts hold relevant and up-to-date industry qualifications, and we supply proof of tax remittance annually in line with Norwegian law.

We can also source temporary talent via a ‘sub-contractor agreement’. This model allows contractors to work both onshore and offshore with NES Fircroft, using their locally registered Limited Company. Based on this model, it is the Ltd Company’s obligation and liability to remit applicable company taxes. To manage such risk, NES Fircroft holds the certificate of incorporation and certificate of VAT registration for limited companies and ensures that the contractual clauses indemnify for any potential losses.

Our contractor care is market-leading and makes life easy for you. 

From pre-boarding, mobilisation, and assignment support to demobilisation - we manage the myriad of obstacles that can occur at any stage, allowing businesses more time to focus on their projects without the complications of contractor management.  

Our robust internal processes and highly experienced consultants are bolstered by our ISO9001 quality accreditation, meaning businesses can expect 100% compliance in everything we do.

We take the time to understand the role(s) being recruited for and capture all information that will help us to profile, source and assess suitable talent, whether that includes utilising our global recruitment database with circa 1,000,000 candidates, or scouring the market for passive talent.

We also support with:

  • assessing technical competency and cultural fit
  • career history checks
  • interview preparation
  • pre-employment checks
  • coordinating work permits and the right documentation to work in Norway
