Talent pool of skilled and experienced candidates
Consulting Assets is a clearing house for individual technical and management consultants and personnel in the petroleum and sustainable energy industries.
As contract, mentoring or full-time personnel needs arise, Consulting Assets can provide the experience and talent to meet those needs.
The petroleum industry continues to experience restructuring and volatility, with the principal drivers being, as ever, the commodity price of oil, growing focus on environmental, social and governance (ESG) concerns, and the transition to sustainable, renewable energy sources.
The 2015 downturn forced a heavy reduction-in-force, much of it achieved by pushing the experienced end of the workforce into retirement. The industry has also endured the “Great Crew Change”, compounding an experience and skills shortage.
With oil prices back to elevated levels, operators find that they can lack ready access to the experience required to execute new projects, activate dormant assets or evaluate potential acquisitions.
Frequently disinclined to meet the ongoing costs of hiring back experienced permanent staff, producers and service companies alike hire inexperienced personnel or turn to contractors to fill immediate and medium term needs.
Furthermore, the transition to Sustainable Energy sources has provided additional pressure on the petroleum industry, while also providing opportunities for many of the skillsets acquired by personnel leaving this sector to be re-tooled to meet the growth needs of renewable energy sectors.
Consulting Assets is well positioned across this new energy landscape to provide experienced personnel on a contract basis to our clients looking to access experience without the costs, risks and liabilities associated with hiring or re-hiring full-time employees. For our clients with full-time positions to fill, we maintain an extensive pool of candidates across the spectrum of disciplines and experience levels.
