Gas and oil recruitment specialists Petroplan opens new office in London

Petroplan has revealed that it’s opened a new office in London.

The company, which specialises in recruiting for the oil, gas and energy industries, has established the office in Waterloo as a centre of excellence. The centre of excellence will focus on a select number of disciplines, including subsurface, subsea, wells and drilling. It will also focus on the placement of permanent positions, as well as positions within more commercial roles within the energy industry.

The opening on the new office follows the opening of Petroplan’s first office in Africa, situated in Cape Town, South Africa.

Simon Bell has been brought in to not only head up Petroplan’s London office, but also its headquarters in Guildford.

He spoke about the reasoning behind establishing an office in England’s capital, stating: “It makes perfect sense for a global recruiter such as Petroplan to have a presence in one of the world’s foremost corporate hubs, where many of our clients have offices themselves.

“It will enable us to hire the brightest and best from London’s impressive talent pool, and will provide a natural base from which to build and grow Petroplan’s service offering. Our expanded presence within the UK will allow us to provide an even higher quality of service to our clients, both UK-based and international,” Mr Bell added.
