ReThink Energy to open Houston office to service Energy sector clients

First office in North America

Plans to have 12-15 recruiters in Houston by end of year

As part of its ongoing expansion in the Energy sector The ReThink Group Plc, the AIM listed international recruitment and consulting company, has opened its first North American office in Houston trading as ReThink Energy.

The office, which opened on the 2nd January 2012, will initially be staffed with six Recruitment Consultants headed up by Houston native Drew Horsley.  Drew is a seasoned recruitment professional with significant experience delivering staffing services to the Oil & Gas market.

The new Houston team will deliver contract and direct hire permanent staffing services to ReThink Energy’s clients in the Upstream Oil & Gas industry, primarily operating in the Gulf of Mexico.  The aim is to expand the office to between 12 and 15 consultants by the end of the year.

The ReThink Energy practice currently services the North Sea, North American, Middle Eastern & Australian markets, working with both Operators & Service companies. The existing client base includes Apache Corporation, ConocoPhillips, Hess Corporation, Schlumberger, Wipro & Infosys, amongst others. The Houston team will enable the business to service and expand its North American client base more effectively.

The Houston team will continue the existing strategy of delivering network/headhunt based services to specialist skill areas where clients typically find it very hard to secure quality resources.  The approach differentiates the business from many of its competitors who tend to offer pure database search models which typically fail to produce the desired results. The specialist areas are usually technical and & lsquo;white collar’ covering: Hydrocarbon Accounting, Drilling & Completions, Geophysical, Subsurface Data Management, Real-Time Data Management, EAM, EIM, G&G Applications, Change & Transformation, and Project/Program Management.

Alan Darling, Practice Lead, of ReThink Energy comments: “This is a hugely exciting step for us as a rapidly developing business.  We have existing oil and gas sector clients based in Houston and actually having a presence on the ground will enable us to improve the level of service we provide while giving us an ideal springboard for further expansion in the North American energy sector.”

“We are delighted to have Drew Horsley on board. Putting a local in charge of the new office, who understands the market and has excellent contacts, will be important to the success of this venture.”

He adds: “Accessing the right skills is mission critical for the oil and gas sector. We believe that the ReThink strategy, which combines specialist candidate networks with a detailed understanding of our clients’ businesses, will bring about a significant shake up of the Houston staffing market.”

The new Houston office is located on Dallas Street in Downtown Houston and continues ReThink’s international expansion in to Dubai, Singapore and Ireland over the last two years.
