Staniland, who has joined the global talent solutions provider as a senior consultant at its Altrincham office, 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.”
Peter Howarth, divisional director – UK at NES Global Talent, added: “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.”
