NES Global Talent opens new office in Paris
The office will act as NES Global Talent’s regional hub for business activity across France and is strategically placed to support new and existing clients in country with both local and international manpower needs.
Towards the end of last year, NES Global Talent opened a new office in Stavanger in Norway, to help fuel its European expansion plans. Since then, as well as the Paris office, the company has also opened operations in Cape Town, South Africa, Erbil in Iraq and New Orleans in the US, meaning the company now has 41 operations in 25 countries worldwide.
Michael Wallace, associate directorat NES Global Talent, said, “Our business is expanding globally and our latest opening in Paris is part of that strategic international plan. Europe is of key importance to us. There are a lot of projects starting up across the continent, with a number of new discoveries being made in more testing environments where more advanced technology and skills are required, such as subsurface. There is also a huge demand for people with advanced scientific skills to work on older assets and help improve productivity and extend field life. Our new Paris operation will help us better support our clients, candidates and contractors.”
NES Global Talent’s Paris office is located in Paris La Defense. The operation will be managed locally by operations manager Kadia Ly. The company plans to take on additional recruitment and support personnel at the office over the next six months, with the first hires being made in the coming weeks.
Ly, who has more than eight years’ industry experience, said, “This is a great opportunity for NES Global Talent to grow its relationships with its existing key clients and build strong and lasting relationships with new clients.
“As we all know, the oil and gas industry is in the midst of a talent shortage. I’m excited to be working for a company that is focused on creating the innovative manpower solutions to help solve that problem and am looking forward to growing the business in France and beyond.”
