- Almost half of oil and gas professionals expect the sector to recover in the next 12 months. But nearly
two thirdsof hiring managers expect it to take more than a year.
Hannah Peet, Managing Director at Energy Jobline, says: “The oil and gas sector has endured one of its most prolonged and devastating downturns to date. In the UK alone, more than 150 000 people lost their jobs. But the industry is incredibly resilient and the sharing of new ideas is helping to get it back on its feet.
“When the dust settles, hiring managers will need to be smart in thinking about how they attract new talent. Gone are the days of expensive bidding wars, offering candidates ever-increasing salaries. GETI will help them to find a way forward – and fill the talent gap by ensuring they know what potential future employees want.”
