Manpower solutions provider, NES Global Talent has appointed subsurface specialist David Styles as a lead consultant in Brisbane as demand for subsurface skills grows across Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.
Styles, who has 13 years’ recruitment experience working in the UK, Australia and UAE, will focus on permanent recruitment and growing the company’s subsurface business.
Talking about the opportunities available, he said: “Exploration, appraisal and field development are ongoing functions for oil and gas operating companies and a candidate such as a geoscientist may work across a number of exploration permits. This means that the demand is constant and it is important that we have a stream of skilled subsurface professionals in the pipeline.
“The east coast market is full of opportunities for subsurface professionals. Demand is high, especially as field development and production become more and more key to the success of the companies based here.”
Gareth Broadrick, Australasian divisional director – permanent solutions at NES Global Talent, said: “David brings years of experience and expertise to the role as well as tons of enthusiasm and drive. Permanent recruitment is a key part of our business and David’s appointment will help us continue to grow and strengthen the division.
“David’s discipline specific expertise in subsurface will strengthen our offering in this key industry sector and we are looking forward to developing our existing working relationships as well as establishing new ones.”
