Oil and Gas People Launching Jobs Website

November 5, 2009 at 1:08 am Leave a comment

A new website is set to change the way oil companies and agencies recruit employees. Launched at Offshore Europe and due to go live to recruiters soon, www.oilandgaspeople.com raises the bar to new levels with their bold and very unconventional recruitment model that is the cause of much concern to existing oil and gas job sites.

            Designed to offer a better solution for recruiters and candidates, www.oilandgaspeople.com will minimize a recruiter’s work load while speeding up the process of finding suitable candidates. No longer will recruiters need to advertise positions online, wait for candidates to respond and then have to spend days sorting through masses of CV’s often received. Oilandgaspeople.com will instantly match suitable candidates to positions uploaded by recruiters.

            Candidate matches will be instant and very accurate, due to the vast amount of information held on each candidate. Candidates are matched based on their experience, qualifications, training, location, personal requirements, visas held, salary expectations, previous companies worked for, job title, availability, project experience, industry experience and more. Recruiters can even prioritise each requirement to get more accurate matches.

            Candidates no longer have to continuously search job sites; if a suitable position is posted that meets their requirements, they will be automatically put forward. Candidates will maintain complete control over their contact details by having to confirm their interest in each position before the recruiter receives their contact details. This process means candidates no longer receive cold calls about irrelevant positions and recruiters can instantly find suitable candidates.

            What makes Oilandgaspeople.com really different is that the above process is completely free! Recruiters no longer have to pay thousands per year to access a database of candidates, nor do they have to pay each time they advertise a position. Oilandgaspeople.com will only charge a fee when a candidate is placed in a position or accepted for an interview.

            Recruiters can confirm a candidate’s interest and carry out pre-screening through the site at no charge. If the candidate is accepted for the position, then recruiters pay a small fee for that person’s contact details at the final stage. For convenience candidates can also upload all their certification, qualifications and employment documents to their profile, and these will automatically be sent to the recruiter once a match is confirmed.

            To show its commitment to the industry, the same organization has launched www.oilandgascommunity.com, a social networking site aimed at improving networking and communication among oil and gas people worldwide. The site will allow the sharing and free exchange of lessons learned, incident alerts, lateral learning and safety bulletins. A safety document library will soon be offered along with lots of information pages for new starts to the industry.
