Leaders In Natural Resources Recruitment

EO is a leading provider of top managers and executives for senior roles within the Natural Resources sector. We have experience recruiting for key senior positions within Sales, Procurement & Supply Chain, Finance and IT as well as board level positions such as CEO, Managing Director, Chairman and Non Executive Director.

The natural resources sector has experienced significant challenges recently. The volatility of commodity prices has created a headache for many businesses as they try and balance production when demand is high with managing supplies when prices fall. In addition, the large capital involvement most of these businesses have creates increasing pressure as budget and risk management along with workforce planning become critical items on the agenda.

Our recruitment experts have considerable global experience within this space and are able to locate and source senior managers with extensive experience for permanent positionsprojectschange programmes, or interim assignments.

Challenges We Solve

Many of our clients within the natural resources sector are experiencing the effect of external factors such as rising energy costs, social and geopolitical risks, resource nationalism and infrastructure shortages.

Despite these external pressures many businesses continue to invest in innovation as high impact technologies such as high pressure, high-temperature drilling, automation and the ability to access previously inaccessible deposits become a reality.

As a result clients are looking for experienced senior leaders who are able to help mitigate risk, improve operational excellence and co-ordinate large scale technically challenging projects.

We have supported clients on projects such as:

  • Improving efficiencies within core businesses
  • Budget and risk management
  • Maintaining growth
  • Building new alliances and partnerships
