NES Global Talent, the specialist manpower solutions provider, has opened a new office in New Plymouth, New Zealand, due to increased demand for technical and engineering talent in the oil and gas, construction and infrastructure sectors.

It is NES Global Talent’s first office in New Zealand and the operation will act as a regional hub for business activity, allowing the company to grow not only in the Taranaki region, but also in other key locations across the North and South Islands.

Matt Underhill, Regional Director, Asia Pacific at NES Global Talent, said: “Our clients in the oil and gas, construction and infrastructure sectors are investing in New Zealand. In order to ensure projects are delivered on time and on budget, our clients need access to the very best in technical and engineering talent and this is where NES Global Talent can help.”

Towards the end of last year, the New Zealand government awarded 10 new oil and gas exploration permits, with the 2014 oil and gas block offer currently in progress.

Not only is there a high demand for oil and gas workers in New Zealand, the construction and infrastructure sectors in Christchurch, Auckland and Wellington are also experiencing a recruitment boom, explains NES Global Talent.

NES Global Talent’s New Plymouth office is located in Devon Street East, New Plymouth Central. It will be managed locally by Bruce Jordan, Recruitment Manager, who has more than 11 years’ recruitment experience in the New Zealand market, recruiting into oil and gas, engineering and infrastructure markets. Bruce Jordan comes with a wealth of experience having held prior management positions in both New Zealand and the UK. NES Global Talent plans to make further hires during the course of 2014.

Bruce Jordan, who will focus on both permanent and contract recruitment, said: “Skill shortages will continue to be a major issue in the industry in both upstream and downstream areas, as well as in the construction and infrastructure sectors, and this will continue to be a focus in terms of identifying, attracting and securing quality candidates locally and from around the world.

“NES Global Talent’s renowned reputation in many specialised sectors assists in attracting highly sought after skills to fill the gaps that many companies are currently facing in both the short and long terms.”

Established in 1978, NES Global Talent is an award-winning manpower specialist that has placed over 70 different nationalities into 69 countries across the oil and gas, power and infrastructure sectors worldwide. In addition to New Plymouth, NES Global Talent recently opened a new office in Shekou, China, bringing its footprint to 44 offices in 27 countries around the world, with more office openings in the pipeline for 2014.
