In the energy industry there are many different recruitment models available all with advantages and disadvantages. These range from jobs boards with a million CV’s to sift through and download for a low price, to executive search companies who will put the time in in sourcing, verifying, qualifying and interviewing for you.
At the same time there is a finite number of potential hires available at any time.
At any time there might be:
- 50-500 million people who need a job and could work in the energy industry in a low skill job.
- Half a million specialists who have relevant experience on rigs or at plants.
- 100,000 specialists who have a high level of skill and experience who can make a difference to your company.
- 500 that would all be suitable for all of the roles you need for your next project.
- The 50 best ones who you will ultimately hire.
Whilst the actual figures are made up, the point is clear, there are millions of people who would take a job if you offered it to them. There are levels of qualification and plenty of noise. There is the noise of out of date or incomplete CV’s, candidates that are registered but no longer looking for a job, and recruiters who have never stepped on a rig or got a drop of oil on their boots…
The process of whittling down a candidate list for each role can be a challenge. Then putting a dream team together who can gel and support each other is not an easy task. The main problem is based on knowledge and experience gaps. A recruitment company who employs telesales people will put forward mismatched candidates. The people in HR are very good at employee payroll and contracts but they do not really know the difference between a Toolpusher and a Tourpusher (ask them!)
So find the right skill set is a challenge, to find a team not only with the wright skill sets, but also the best choices for each role is impossible, unless you are experienced yourself. This is the unique value proposition of S-energy Consultants.
