Filed in EDUCATION NEWS by on October 20, 2014 0 Comments

Institute of Drilling and Petroleum Engineering (IDPE) – In a highly specialised market, such as oil & gas, every potential employer needs to position itself to win the increasingly high-stakes war for talent. Failure to attract the required high skilled expertise can have a major impact on a business as the organisation not only loses the potential skills uplift internally, but typically loses it to the competition.

To this effect, Hiring companies are therefore increasingly partnering with specialist recruitment agencies to source and supply oil and gas personnel across a broad range of disciplines including Administration, Business Development, Engineering, Construction, and Drilling and Well services.
