NES Global Talent grows IT division
Staniland, who has joined the global talent solutions provider as a senior consultant at its Altrincham office in the UK, will focus on supplying IT experts within the oil and gas and engineering sectors.
Talking about the growing demand for IT in the oil and gas sector, Staniland said, “Despite the recent downturn in the oil price, IT remains an essential cog in the oil and gas production wheel. If anything, the drive for greater efficiency has enhanced the demand for IT professionals in certain disciplines such as change management. Businesses continue to recognise that they need a skilled workforce with knowledge and expertise in technology to support them.
“NES Global Talent is a world leader in oil and gas recruitment and we are working closely with the engineering team to build a strong international platform for IT. Our clients trust us to deliver results, and we want to build upon the successes of NES Global Talent and offer our clients a & lsquo;one-stop shop’ for their professional recruitment requirements across multiple disciplines and in all the locations where we have a strong workforce presence. Since I have joined NES Global Talent this has already included locations such as Aberdeen, Iraq, Oman, Kazakhstan, China, Paris and Angola.”
Peter Howarth, divisional director – UK at NES Global Talent, said, “Peter has a discipline specific background within IT and brings a wealth of expertise and knowledge of technical IT roles, which will help us drive our technology division forward.
“We are focused on providing our clients with access to the very best in talent, whatever the discipline, while providing the best package for our candidates.”
