May 1, 2014 – NES Global Talent has opened a new office in Shekou, South China. The firm is expanding in China and the new office will act as a regional hub for business activity across the South of the region, allowing NES Global Talent to also grow in other key locations such as Zhuhai, Shenzhen and Guangzhou. The new office will be managed locally by Darren Pang, senior consultant, who has more than eight years’ oil and gas recruitment experience and was previously based in NES Global Talent’s Singapore office. Joshua Schrijvers, divisional manager at NES Global Talent, said: “The potential in China is huge. There are many opportunities for us in both the North and South of the country, particularly in coastal cities such as Shekou, Qingdao, Tianjin, Shanghai and Zhuhai. Chinese fabrication yards in these locations are winning more and more business from international owners and operators. These projects all need contractors with specific skills, which can be challenging, and this is where NES Global Talent can help as we provide a complete range of manpower solutions.” Since 1978 NES Global Talent has provided recruiting and executive search services to over 70 different nationalities into 69 countries across the oil and gas, power and infrastructure sectors worldwide. In addition to Shekou, NES Global Talent recently opened a new office in Paris, bringing its footprint to 43 offices in 26 countries around the world. More office openings are in the pipeline for 2014.
