New approach offers opportunities for both young starters and experienced professionals in the oil and gas industry

Posted by Phil Houston


The right people are key to realising the ambitions of the oil and gas industry.  But existing recruitment practices have not, until now, made the most of new opportunities offered by technology.  All this is due to change with the arrival of TalEng, a new web-based platform that connects engineering specialists with the right projects.

TalEng, a global marketplace for oil and gas specialists, provides the connection between leading industry professionals and the companies that need them.  Freelance consultancy makes up to 40% of the engineering workforce and TalEng enables companies to access the world's best engineering personnel, whether they are new to the profession or have decades of experience.

TalEng invites carefully vetted specialists to submit tailored proposals for projects that correspond with their precise skills and experience.  This allows the best talent to work independently and globally, and means companies can start work immediately. TalEng CEO Phil Houston states, 'there's a real opportunity here for companies and specialists to save a lot of time and money.  Whether you need expert technical advice for an hour or a new team member for six months, TalEng can find you the right person, fast.'

TalEng is also a solution to a potential recruitment crisis in the oil and gas industry.  Commonly referred to as 'the great crew change', the American Petroleum Institute states that as many as 50% of skilled energy workers may retire in the next five to seven years. As Phil Houston explains, 'the soon-to-retire workforce often wants to give knowledge to projects, but they don't want to commute or work full time. At the same time, the best young talent is looking for flexibility and independence. With TalEng, companies don't need to be worried about recruitment as they are able to access the expertise required to deliver the most ambitious and difficult projects.'
