All team members spent the majority of their careers with Shell International and are trained assessors who have worked in recruitment and staff evaluation exercises.  Their experience spans management roles in Human Resources, Exploration, Development, Production & Maintenance, Technology and R&D in addition to Organisational Design.  Team members have considerable experience in Skill Pool management for their original respective disciplines in geosciences, production engineering and field engineering, comprising in total more than 5000 professionals.

Staff Recruitment

Once we have had a dialogue with you as a client, to understand the expertise and personal attributes you are looking for, we will initially aim to provide a candidate from our existing network of highly experienced professionals. If we cannot identify a suitable candidate we can also place advertisements for the expertise you are looking for, and provide assessment services in order to select a suitable candidate.

No charges are levied for receipt of CV´s from our existing database.  Should you wish to interview one or more professionals, then a charge will only be levied if you subsequently employ the professional. Please contact us for further information.

For advertising & candidate assessment services please contact us for further discussion.
