Recruitment Solutions and Engineering Jobs in Brisbane
We provide technical staff to the Energy sector in Brisbane and the wider Queensland region
NES Fircroft has been established in Queensland for over 15 years during which time our local team has supported a huge array of Oil & Gas, Renewable Energy & Power, Mining and Construction & Infrastructure businesses.
Our growth is exponential and over the last two years alone we have more than doubled our client portfolio and significantly expanded our scope within the Brisbane technical markets to provide staff to Project Developers / Owner Operators, OEMs, EPCs, EPCMs, Consulting Engineering firms, and service companies.
Whilst our original success came predominantly from Oil & Gas and Mining projects, we have since diversified the business to complement the evolving energy and infrastructure markets. Currently our specialist offering is evenly distributed between our Mining, Renewable Energy & Power, Construction & Infrastructure and Oil & Gas sectors.
Our recruitment teams are well versed in supporting the Procurement departments for some of the state’s largest engineering projects with both multidisciplinary consultancy and professional services. Our expertise encompasses the technical, commercial and the support sides of industry, meaning we’re just as proficient at sourcing electrical engineers as HR specialists.
Staffing Brisbane's Technical Markets
We are a global organisation with local expertise, offering unrivalled on-the-ground market knowledge with the support and experience of a multi-national conglomerate. Our international office network spans 45 countries in six continents with a technical candidate database of over 1,000,000. Our recruiters are discipline-specific, meaning they are true experts in their markets, whether you need staff for your solar park or your remote mining site.
Our Brisbane-based team of 15+ manages over 200 contractors and has made over 100 permanent hire placements this year alone. Backed by our wider Australian office network stretching from Perth to Sydney, our local candidate database exceeds 10,000 Australian-based engineers.
Recruitment services in Brisbane

Collaboratively, our teams will support the sourcing and mobilisation of candidates from anywhere in the world.

This allows full time work, unrestricted, for a period up to 4 years initially (with the option of applicant applying for permanent residency later). Our accreditation means that processing times are reduced significantly for us and can be in place in as quick as 2 weeks from lodgment.
For shorter term pieces of work, we can provide visas up to 12 months in a cost effective and time efficient way. We have utilised this solution for over 100+ contractors across Australia, ensuring project deadlines are met with smooth mobilisation and demobilisations. We manage all contractor logistics such as transport, accommodation, medicals and in-country orientation.
