Revolutionary recruitment tool launches to support offshore industry boom
IV Live, which has revolutionised the way offshore contractors search for candidates and fill their urgent vacancies, was designed and built by IV Offshore, a specialist recruitment agency for the offshore energy industry. Features include & lsquo;live’ candidate availability, candidate star ratings and visible appraisals as well as compliance checks for offshore documentation.
Client trials of IV Live began in December 2013, following it’s much anticipated launch event at Amicus Apple in Aberdeen.
Dan Stephenson, Managing Director of IV Offshore, said, “The client trials are proving a success, showing huge potential to fill a gap in what is a very demanding market. With real-time access to contractor availability, our clients can select the candidate they want at the click of a button.”
Investment into the oil and gas exploration and production industry continues to rise worldwide. In 2013, investment in the UK market alone reached an all-time high of £13.5bn, according to a report released by trade body Oil & Gas UK.
Dan explained the need to maximise the efficiency of recruitment processes: “Plans for the industry are huge, particularly with the forthcoming decommissioning projects. It is essential that we develop recruitment resources to support this.
“IV Live has taken a year to design, develop and test in-house. We are proud to see that it is making a difference to clients already.”
