25+ years headhunting experience
A JV Oil Company located in the Caspian Sea region were looking to hire a Chief Engineer to manage two of their key terminals in the region. The role required a candidate with extensive experience of previous terminal, pipeline and Health and safety knowledge as well as managing relations with local and International oil corporations and management. The successful candidate would need to have a highly technical, diplomatic and commercial background in order to fulfil their potential within this position.
After lengthy discussions and a briefing on the clients expectations MSC Headhunting, having experience as headhunters in the oil and gas industry, was retained to go and find qualified engineers who could fulfil the customers expectations. As the company was a JV the challenge was to meet the demands of a number of decision makers with differing needs and agendas. It was vital that we approached suitable prospects in a delicate manner because the client was well known and high profile so confidentiality was vital.
After identifying suitable Terminal managers, GM’s and Chief Engineers around the world, our consultants began making subtle approaches and contacting over 100 people globally. There was a positive response and feeling towards the role due to the clients excellent reputation however relocation was an issue for a few EXPATS. As negotiations continued many high level individuals were attracted and subsequently interviewed and screened. The best 12 were interviewed by video and face to face by an MSC Director and a shortlist of 5 was provided to the client.
The shortlist was handled sensitively and interviewed by the client via video conferencing and 2 were invited to conduct their own audit of the terminals. One was a local Baku Engineer and the other an EXPAT with lots of international experience in the area. The local candidate excelled and had a great rapport with the management and was ultimately successful and given a conditional offer. He accepted the role, resigned from his current post and after a well negotiated reduction in notice began working for his new employer.
“I am delighted and enthused by the quality of the service we receiving from MSC Headhunting. The team understood our particular requirements and delivered what they promised on time.”
