We wanted a very specific profile with technical and sales abilities, and the willingness and capability to expand his/her role outside of the oil & gas industry. Working Smart was able to provide a first short list of CV’s with accurate accompanying comments within days, the first name of which turned out to be our candidate! The whole process could be turned around in less than a month and Working Smart helped us with all details of the recruitment process, facilitating the compensation discussions. I am happy to recommend Working Smart to employers looking at all types of profiles for the oil & gas industry.

As a company we have been utilising Working Smart for all our advertised G&G recruitment needs for the past five years, and have filled Geologist, Geophysicist, and (recently) a Petroleum Engineer position through them. Their search system does not involve intrusive cold calls or excessive charges and should be a model for the whole sector. We have been satisfied with the screening system which has saved us time while leading to identification of suitable candidates for interview. Their administration, from an employer's perspective, is sound and provides speedy responses, encouraging useful feedback for both parties. They offer the appropriate level of support and have a good knowledge of the issues that arise in taking on new staff that is applied to avoid mismatches. We will continue to rely on them in the future and can happily recommend them to other companies in our sector.

We gave Working Smart quite a challenging role to fill for us, which had also proven to be a difficult position for other agencies. Working Smart did not bombard us with irrelevant CV’s and we knew very early on that candidate details received would be an exact match to our requirements. Once received, we interviewed and received an acceptance of our position within just two weeks. In essence, Working Smart are professionals, they Listen, Match and Deliver.
Julie Francis, Director, Earthworks Environmental and Resources

I have been utilising the services of Working Smart for nearly 15 years and have consistently found them to be in the top tier of recruiters. Their searches, filtering and preparation of candidates to be presented for interview has always been of high quality, enabling an efficient interview process and speedy decision-making. I have never been disappointed by any of the candidates I have recruited through Working Smart. I would recommend them to any oil and gas employer without question.

ARKeX operations department have used the services of Working Smart (WSL) to recruit geophysical field engineers and operations support staff for about 9 months. In that time we have made offers to 6 candidates put forward by WSL and employed 3 of them. In the early stages of the recruitment process, WSL is careful to ensure that the job specification is both accurate and worded in such a way as to attract the highest number of good quality candidates. After that they forward a good number of CVs, which they take time to discuss with the client. They are efficient and diligent in setting up interviews, and follow up to ensure that second interviews or job offers are arranged quickly. ARKeX is a small but rapidly expanding company where the quality of the staff is the most important factor in its success. We will continue to look to WSL to provide that quality as we expand and diversify in the highly competitive oil and gas sector.
Phil Jones, Operations Manager, ARKeX

We worked unsuccessfully with several other recruiters to find staff for our European expansion. Then I found Working Smart Ltd. In short order, Working Smart Ltd identified a large pool of well-qualified candidates, and I wish I could hire them all! I would like to thank all the Working Smart team and I’m looking forward to a long relationship with them.
H. Beverly Taylor, Jr., Vice President of Sales, AGM

I met with Working Smart Ltd the last time I was in London and after discussing the positions that I had available and providing them with a draft of each position description. WSL offered some excellent advice regarding how we could position each, which will save OpenSpirit money while attracting the right people. Then WSL came back within a couple of days with a complete Job Description for each position that was excellent. Within less that a week they forwarded me a list of people for each job with comments and resumes. Since that time I have hired some first rate personnel and am still interviewing.
Larry White, Vice President Sales, OpenSpirit.

Working Smart’s ability to manage the candidate search and proposal process should not be underestimated. The personal effort saved, more than covered the associated cost. Communication is frequent, concise and helped me fill the positions sooner than I’d originally anticipated. The service is executed with a personal “feel” and I have no hesitation in recommending Working Smart and their services.
