NES Global Talent has been operating in Iraq since 2010. Our network of offices in the South of Iraq support our clients with the provision of both skilled Iraqi nationals and expatriate personnel.
Iraq has made impressive gains, nearly doubling the country’s oil production over the past decade. Energy companies need candidates across all disciplines and NES Global Talent are well-placed to deliver and support these candidates in their careers. We currently support over 1,000 contractors working in Iraq with the majority based on Oil and Gas projects such as the Rumaila field – the fourth largest oilfield in the world.
A top priority for the Government of Iraq is rebuilding the country’s power infrastructure; substantial investment and upgrades in the sector are vital, and initiatives are creating further job opportunities for skilled Power personnel. Key in-country Power projects that we support include Dhiqar and Samawa.
If you're looking for a job in Iraq, let us help you take that next step in your career.
