NES Global Talent is celebrating 40 years servicing the energy industry.
In that time the company has grown from a single office operation based in Manchester to one of the largest engineering workforce providers, boasting over 8,000 active contractors, over 750 employees, and over 45 offices across the world.
Simon Coton, Chief Operating Officer at NES Global Talent, reflects on how the staffing industry has changed over the years:
“I first joined NES in the low oil price environment of the mid-1990's, and at the time we were one of a number of oil and gas staffing providers servicing an industry which was stabilising following the Iraq invasion of Kuwait, and looking for the best talent to help it meet global demands.”
“We have certainly seen great change over the intervening decades with both politics and economics shaping the oil landscape, many competitors merging to survive and technology providing both opportunities and threats to the industry. I am proud to say however that NES has grown and thrived in this time, facing the challenges of the day head on and expanding both our capabilities and the industries we service to ensure we continue to deliver exceptional talent wherever it is needed. The oil price may fluctuate but our quality, service and compliance standards remain consistently high, which is why NES Global Talent is well placed to expand our footprint even further and cement our place as the world leading engineering workforce provider for years to come”.
