The experts in Oil & Gas recruitment

Putting energy into transformation for the oil & gas sector

The Oil & Gas market turned on its head in 2015 and has taken several years to show any signs of the recovery which we are now seeing. As a result, the dynamics of the labour market have changed with candidates moving out of the market or retiring after a long career in the industry. As a well-established recruitment brand in this specialist field, we have evolved to provide continued support, and ARM is in a great position to help clients rebuild and expand their staff and contract resource.

We are proud to work globally across the upstream and downstream business sectors, supplying global oil & gas operators, EPC contractors, subsea specialists, engineering consultancies and service companies. We are a preferred supplier of some of the largest operating oil majors, service and utility companies, and work with some of the market’s leading and best known technical organisations.
