From Offshore Oil and Gas to Wind Farms and Biomass Plants, g2 have worked with some of the biggest operators in the Energy sector. There are a huge range of skills and disciplines that sit within Energy and some overlap with the Engineering and Technology teams. However, where g2 really offer value to our clients is in finding people with relevant industry expertise. From Drilling supervisors on jack up rigs off the West coast of Africa, to a Structural Engineer designing a natural gas plant in Russia, our consultants have both the candidate network and experience of facilitating the complex and technically challenging placements required to fill such roles.
A vast database and a range of fully compliant contractual solutions were key to our impact and growth in this space in 2011. This platform of success in Oil and Gas has been a passport into Renewables and EfW sectors, enabling us to support our clients with the best talent in the sector. The myriad of transferable skill sets across these sectors has seen us support everything from cost management, through to the design and the final commissioning of projects in each industry, often with the same candidates.
Even with market fluctuations and often challenging locations of projects, g2 have been able to support clients across each portfolio with speed and efficiency. This is due to a rigorous approach and listening to our client’s requirements, taking care to align each solution to the specific recruitment and compliance needs.
A recruitment V's consultancy strategy played out with a multinational steel-making company.
Conduct a 24-month discovery project, inspecting all site assets in order to plan what maintenance is: Must Do, Should Do, Could Do
Wood Group provide a report on all assets site with a variety of potential maintenance plans, in order variety of importance, but using their own resource of generic inspectors over 24 months.
Team: 6-8 consultants Cost: £2.5m
Directly manage a team of Inspection Engineers (through a seconded PM) with relevant steelworks experience and PSSR accreditation who would adhere to the same timescale and provide a report in accordance to TATA's record system.
Team: 4 consultants Cost: £650k
TATA decided to go for the recruitment option through g2.
Due to the considerable difference in cost, TATA could not see enough extra value in the Wood Group proposal. The ability to directly manage the consultants throughout and keep them accountable to their deliverables on a daily basis was also a major factor.
There are only a few inspectors with the correct experience of working on steel plants, so the likelihood of them for working for consultancy is very slim, meaning Wood Group would have had to hire contractors at a greater cost than g2.
The end result allowed TATA to select a team that provided a mixture of consultants that complemented each other’s skills, some of whom had previously worked together on long term contracts.
