Oil & Gas

Geopolitical factors and international agreements have played a pivotal role in shaping the oil and gas industry in recent years. Market prices have soared and stayed uncomfortably high for many consumers. The steps required to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels remain challenging, meaning that the transition towards greener and more sustainable energy sources is likely to be slow. 

The industry is highly cyclical but job security during downturns and the attraction of stable career prospects can deter potential candidates from changing jobs. Many experienced professionals in the industry are nearing retirement too, creating potential skills gaps as they leave. Attracting and retaining younger talent to replace those leaving the workforce is a priority for many businesses.

Many companies have been successful in encouraging potential candidates to develop their careers within the oil and gas industry by offering remote working opportunities. We have and continue to assist in this process by promoting our clients’ employer brands to the market, which also helps to counter any negative public perceptions of the industry, especially regarding environmental issues.

Client quotes

It has been great working with the Nigel Wright Group team on a substantial resourcing plan that saw us fill senior roles in the HR, L&D and Comms space. The team took the time to understand what we were looking for and how to articulate the opportunity to prospective candidates. I was kept updated throughout, had a diverse range of talent to choose from, and was in the enviable position of having a number of suitable candidates for each role. I was very impressed with the team’s market knowledge, people insight, and client management throughout.
