MENTOR SECURES LANDMARK LABOUR AGREEMENT

MENTOR SECURES LANDMARK LABOUR AGREEMENT

Oil and gas resourcing firm Mentor IMC Group has signed a labour agreement with Australian immigration authorities, allowing it to employ senior non-Australian energy personnel in the country. This three-year permit places Mentor in a preferential position as one of a select number of specialist firms who have been awarded labour agreement contracts by the Australian Governments Department of Immigration and Citizenship.

The arrangement forms part of Mentor IMC Groups long-term strategy to differentiate itself as a truly global presence in the senior recruitment and resourcing area. It also supports the companys full-service approach to hand-picking highly skilled professionals for multi-site projects and transferring them from country to country. With the Australian energy sector currently experiencing unprecedented growth in oil, gas and LNG, this latest agreement demonstrates Mentors commitment to fuelling the regions energy sector with the best energy experts from around the world.

John Richards, CEO, Mentor IMC Group, says: In recent years, weve enjoyed growth and gained a strong global footing, particularly in Asia-Pacific and Australia, allowing us to respond quickly to local demand for specialist energy experts on large oil and gas projects. The labour agreement comes at a crucial stage of our development in the Australian market and there are already a number of other exciting projects in the pipeline to expand our operations across the region.

He continues: In over 20 years of selecting senior energy candidates for projects both within and outside of Australia, weve noticed an increasing shortfall between the availability of and demand for skilled managerial and technical personnel to support our energy sector clients. Through the labour agreement, the Australian Government has recognised the value of overseas experts in helping to attract new large-scale projects in the region, which will in turn boost the Australian economy.
