Scenario: 
Due to ongoing growth, Production Development Oman (PDO) needed to recruit a large number of drilling staff to their organisation. Over a period of three months, they planned to make 30 senior level hires. They approached Michael Page Oil & Gas to manage the recruitment campaign with the brief to use only executive search methodology. PDO also confirmed only three weekends that they would be available to interview candidates, in Dubai.
Solution: 
The Michael Page Oil & Gas team in the Middle East actively approached relevant individuals and then shortlisted and coordinated pre-screening technical interviews for more than 100 drilling supervisor candidates. We progressed 50 of the drilling supervisors to the next stage in the process – a face-to-face meeting with the key PDO stakeholders in Dubai. We coordinated the hotels, medicals, transportation and testing for this group of candidates.
Outcome: 
This interview stage culminated in more than 20 successful offers to candidates. The talent attraction process is ongoing, with Michael Page Oil & Gas continuing to source strong drilling supervisors for PDO.
