NES Boosts Subsurface Expertise in Australia to Meet Regional Demand
NES Global Talent, the manpower solutions provider, has appointed subsurface specialist David Styles as a Lead Consultant in Brisbane as demand for subsurface skills grows across Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.
David, who has 13 years’ recruitment experience working in Australia, UK and United Arab Emirates (UAE), will focus on permanent recruitment and growing the company’s subsurface business, ensuring NES Global Talent is the supplier of choice for oil and gas operating companies across the region.
Talking about the opportunities available, David said: “Exploration, appraisal and field development are ongoing functions for oil and gas operating companies and a candidate such as a geoscientist may work across a number of exploration permits. This means that the demand is constant and it is important that we have a stream of skilled subsurface professionals in the pipeline.
“The east coast market is full of opportunities for subsurface professionals. Demand is high, especially as field development and production become more and more key to the success of the companies based here.
“One of the key advantages NES Global Talent has is its worldwide presence. While Australia is home to many experienced subsurface professionals, we need to tap into the global talent pool for certain skillsets including oil and gas exploration and development professionals with shale and tight oil and gas experience. Subsurface skill demand is growing and we are well positioned to supply this talent.”
Gareth Broadrick, Australasian divisional director – Permanent Solutions at NES Global Talent, said: “David brings years of experience and expertise to the role as well as tons of enthusiasm and drive. Permanent recruitment is a key part of our business and David’s appointment will help us continue to grow and strengthen the division. David’s discipline specific expertise in subsurface will strengthen our offering in this key industry sector and we are looking forward to developing our existing working relationships as well as establishing new ones.”
