Oil & Gas Industry

Oil & Gas recruitment is back and it’s going to boom! Once again, it’s an exciting time for technically minded Oil & Gas recruiters to personally financially capitalise in the growth of this major Energy industry.

Recent reports and surveys of more than 10,000 Oil & Gas companies and employees show that 60% expect to increase staffing by approx. 10% in headcount within the next 12 months.

This sharp upward trajectory in the Oil & Gas market is being led by significant investment in the US Shale market and the rekindled interest in the North Sea (BP have announced they will double North Sea production to 200k barrels a day by 2020). This means new Oil and Gas projects will start and its projected to be at the highest levels within the previous 10 years.

EMEA growth is prevalent, major projects in Kazakhstan and East Africa which require the Oil personnel skills gap filled in Engineering hubs in the UK, France and Holland.

This role will be based at their new Central London office in the City, or their Manchester City Centre award winning offices.
