With a 40-year pedigree in the oil and gas sector, global oil and gas recruiter Petroplan is expanding again in Scotland and has appointed a new business development leader to meet demands from growing GOR (gas, oil and renewables) market sectors.
The oil and gas industry employs more than 200,000 people in Scotland, while renewables support more than 10,000 jobs north of the border.
Petroplan has appointed Stacy Edghill as its Business Development Lead at its office in Aberdeen, where she will focus on key-market sectors in both Glasgow and Grampian. She was previously business development manager at Rigzone.
The company has regional offices and a global in-house team located across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, North America, Asia Pacific and Australasia.
Petroplan currently employs 10 people in Scotland – which is a 50% increase over last year due to the recent opening of its new office in Glasgow – and there are plans afoot for further expansion north or the border. Kenny Dooley, Regional Director, Petroplan, said:
“The Aberdeen market is an important European centre for the energy industry and we are pleased to have secured somebody of Edghill’s standing and experience to help us build on the opportunities that exist here.
“Many recruitment consultants focus on a specific sector. However, Stacy brings the breadth of experience and range of contacts necessary for us to focus on growing our business by promoting our entire range of services”.
