We provide recruitment solutions for the energy and infrastructure markets in Melbourne
NES Fircroft has been established in Melbourne since 2013. Our origins are rooted in Oil & Gas, however we have diversified our business focus considerably into the Renewable Energy market.
Our services encompass wind, solar and hydropower projects, and we also support other technical sectors such as Construction & Infrastructure.
Businesses in Melbourne and wider Australia seek our recruitment support due to our demonstrated expert knowledge of the local market, and the fact that our recruitment consultants are discipline-specific, meaning they’re truly experts in their sectors, staying close to trends and people movement.
Staffing Melbourne's Technical Markets
