Oilfield Services in United Arab Emirates


United Arab Emirates

NES Global Talent has been operational in the UAE for over a decade and are the only international workforce provider based in the UAE holding a 100% locally owned, on-demand labour trade license. Our two offices - based in Dubai and Abu Dhabi - have teams of recruitment consultants and assignment support staff ready to help clients staff their projects, assist with obtaining visas / work permits and to help candidates find a job across the energy mix.

In addition to staffing expatriate talent, our clients are committed to providing local employment opportunities and are actively recruiting local candidates across all disciplines. Our oil clients in the UAE are undertaking a major shift from upstream to downstream investments and a new $15 billion refinery project at Ruwais is creating huge opportunities for the local community.  

We’re also seeing high levels of investment into power infrastructure as Renewables gain more momentum. Across the Middle East, there are currently over 12,000 megawatts of power projects that have either been awarded or are under construction, commissioning & operation. Solar power in particular is becoming more prolific with many projects already in execution, including the Mohammed Bin Rashid Solar Park on which we've placed many technical personnel.

In addition to a growing Renewables industry, we are committed to supporting clients across the full energy mix and have placed volume staff onto the The Upper Zakum development, which aims to increase oil production rates at the Abu Dhabi-based field.

If you're looking for a job, let us help you take the next step in your career.
