Specialist engineering recruitment firm, Cordant Technical & Engineering, has opened an office in Aberdeen to meet growing demand among oil and gas companies in particular for both temporary and permanent staff. The firm is part of Cordant Recruitment, the second-largest privately owned recruitment company in the UK.
Located in Union Street, the new Aberdeen office is being headed up by Claire Naha who recently joined Cordant Technical & Engineering. She has over 14 years’ international experience in Engineering recruitment, specifically within the Oil & Gas, Well Engineering, Drilling and Subsea sectors. The office has opened with four consultants with plans to grow this to 10 by the end of this year.
Cordant Technical & Engineering’s long-term goal is for the Aberdeen office to be at the heart of all its UK Oil & Gas recruitment business, with other stand-alone divisions specialising in areas such as Subsea, ROV, Marine and Drilling. It will be placing both permanent and temporary staff. The consultancy has already started generating interest amongst local companies, having made successful placements for XL Group and ATR Group.
Shaun Simmons, Managing Director of Cordant Technical & Engineering, comments: “It has always been our goal to be the number one agency of choice in our chosen sectors. Aberdeen is a key centre for Oil & Gas, Energy and Infrastructure companies, so it makes strategic sense for us to establish a permanent base here with the best specialist consultants in the market.”
Cordant Technical & Engineering also has offices in Manchester, Newcastle, Bristol and Maldon and has just opened a new office in Abu Dhabi.
