              Case Studies

              • Our Client's Challenge:  Our client was awarded the turnkey construction for a thermoelectric power station in South America. They were not only challenged with increasing the number of personnel for this project in a short period of time, but they were also in need of compliant expat talent as well as the development of local talent in-country. 

                Our Solution: Having built a history with this client over the last 15 years, NES Global Talent was able to successfully identify candidates for key technical roles for this project across Project Controls, HSE, Construction and Installation & Commissioning Engineers.​

              • Our Clients Challenge: Having won a major project in the UAE, our client needed to recruit a large team of solar specialists to begin work on a solar power plant site. The skillsets and experience levels needed for the project meant that the search for personnel would have to take place on an international scale. Rapid mobilisation processes were also crucial to the success of the project. The client was unable to organise and obtain visas in the UAE and as a result of our strong reputation in the region, sought the help of NES Global Talent to ensure that the process of locating and mobilising staff ran as quickly as possible.

                Our Solution: Using our extensive talent pool networks and global support teams, NES was able to source and mobilise an entire team of people within the timeframe, providing extensive, practical support to contractors throughout the project. Our in-country team has a working knowledge of UAE culture and latest administrational processes to ensure that contractors are prepared for their roles. Our assignment support teams are experienced in assisting contract workers and organising all of their logistics such as visas, work permits and travel needs.
