Head of Department Michael Ormesher Introduces Fircroft’s new Drilling and Completions Department
It’s a very exciting time at Fircroft with the announcement of our brand new team. “Fircroft Drilling” has been created to enable a new way of servicing our clients and candidates. The idea behind it is to work towards a centralised Contract and Permanent team who will offer specialist capability in this area.
As the Head of this new business unit, I wanted to take the time to respond to some of the various questions I have recently been asked about it.
Why has it been formed?
Drilling and Completions is currently the most active of all sectors within the market so we wanted to see what we could do to improve our service. The demand for Oil and Gas personnel is set to rise by 8% between now and 2020; the figure for Drilling & Completions is over 17% for the same period so it was clearly an important area for us to focus on.
Fircroft has a truly global reach and we deliver our service in a number of different ways: by Country, by Region or by Client. We identified that there was a need for a centralised Drilling team to work in harmony with all these different business areas to maximise our effectiveness for our clients and candidates alike.
We’re here to ensure that the experience for every Drilling candidate and client hiring manager is as smooth and effective as possible.
We’re very eager to open up opportunities in countries and areas we haven’t operated in yet – this really is an international operation and we’re responding to what’s happening in the market and following the key areas of growth that have been identified.
What do you want clients and candidates to know about this new team?
There can be a perception amongst the Oil and Gas industry that recruiters are not specialist, that we don’t do niche and we are there for the more general roles. We’re looking to prove that this isn’t the case; when it comes to Drilling there isn’t a better placed organisation to support you if you’re a client or a candidate.
What’s the ultimate aim of this brand new team?
Our goal is to deliver a first class service to our clients and candidates. Drilling is without question one of the most demanding areas within Oil and Gas and our clients are amending their processes in recognition of this.
It’s a fascinating time for us here at Fircroft as we continue to evolve and grow. If you’re interested in learning more about what our new team can do for you please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or browse our current drilling jobs.
