Oilfield Services in France



NES Global Talent has been operational in France since 2016, delivering tailored workforce solutions to clients across the entire energy mix, from upstream oil and gas, to offshore wind and downstream chemical refining. We have a rich history of supplying highly skilled workers to operators and EPC companies, and have more recently broadened our support to also include the Power Transmission & Distribution, Life Sciences, Construction and IT sectors.

Its geographical location and economical position within Europe means that France is central to many global projects and acts as a pivotal location for numerous international clients across a number of industry verticals. Our Paris-based operation has been integral in supplying experienced contract staff to several African projects, including Mozambique LNG and EACOP.

France is working towards a new energy infrastructure: cleaner, more efficient, and more ecological. This has engendered a lot of investment into the renewable market. In particular we're proud to support the thriving offshore wind market and support several sites located in the West of France. The country boasts 3 big exploitation zones for offshore wind: the Mediterranean zone, the English Channel / la Manche, and the Atlantic coast. These vast and diversely located sites enable optimal production for the country to meet market supply and demand all year round; current projects are predicted to produce 10,000 MW, and 500 windmills are installed annually. All of this means that there are plenty of exciting job opportunities in this arena for skilled engineers and technical personnel.

France is also hosting the Olympic games in 2024 and the infrastructure network is already seeing huge developments, with the biggest urban project in Europe - the “Grand Paris Express” project - already underway. This enormous scope includes 200km of automatic metro lines, 68 new stations and 7 Technical Centers.

We offer contract staffing, permanent hire and managed solutions for clients to enhance their workforce plans. For candidates, we'll support them every step of the way through their interview and ensure that they are prepared to take on their next role. Our contractors also have access to award-winning assignment support services including visa management and payroll.
