Petroplan, the global oil, gas and energy recruitment specialist, is celebrating the one-year anniversary of its London office launch. The London hub, which serves as a centre of excellence for the company, currently supports a team of 25 consultants, delivering global recruitment services for a number of specialist disciplines. Following a highly successful 12 months, the headcount of Petroplan’s London hub is expected to surpass 30 this year.
“Our investment in the London office is fundamental to Petroplan’s global growth strategy, which has been realised by our success over the last 12 months,” commented Andrew Speers, Managing Director, Petroplan. “There is a significant pool of skilled and experienced recruiters in our capital, and harnessing this talent will be crucial as we continue to expand our business.”
From its London hub, Petroplan supports clients globally by recruiting for a number of specialist disciplines, including engineering, marine, subsea, subsurface, and drilling and wells. This also extends to broader functions such as commercial, HSEQ, project management and supply chain.
“We strive to make Petroplan a great place to work and this is a significant driver for the way we do business. Petroplan is not your typical recruitment company – we invest heavily in our talent and as a result we have a global network of highly motivated teams with unique sector knowledge,” continued Speers.
Jon France, Regional Recruitment Manager, Petroplan, added, “Despite global market challenges, our outlook for this year remains positive. Our gross profit target is 30% more than last year and based on activity in Q1 we are already on track to hit this quarter’s gross profit target, paving the way for a successful remainder of 2015. Recruitment businesses and employers with a long-term view are continuing to invest in people. This is an opportunity for organisations to upskill their workforce and secure the best possible talent for the future.”
