Henry Garcia - Reservoir Engineer - C&C Reservoirs

Having met these people last year, I am writing to endorse a highly suitable agency, Working Smart, especially Deirdre and Claire who in many ways exceeded the challenging requirements and expectations for my contract term with a major oil and gas operator. Deirdre was extremely essential in anything related to the project process before, during and after finishing it. Claire was supportive in terms of recruitment, mobilization, and logistics. I was particularly impressed by their abilities to handle a tough client in a nice and professional manner: it seemed to come perfectly naturally to them. I am pleased to express admiration for Deirdre and Claire’s unique talents and endless support. I highly recommend this team and their services.

Claire was very clear and helpful in outlining the project and in facilitating the on-boarding and mobilisation. Deirdre in particular was very supportive in the delivery of the service. Any business in the upstream or downstream who seeks a professional working style with transparency, commitment and high standard delivery would be well served in using Working Smart – they are definitely a prolific Company. I will particularly recommend them for challenging projects. Deirdre and Claire are both key success players in successful project delivery. I was very lucky to get to know them and work with them.
Sahar Abdullah - Petrel Specialist - Wipro

I registered with Working Smart a few months ago and uploaded my resume. It was a quick and easy process and I registered my Job Alerts. This process ensured I got to know about available job options through their “mail alerts” and also through their personalized invites to apply for Jobs. They provide a simple process to register and to apply for Oil Industry jobs. The Recruitment Consultants at Working smart guide you through the entire process. In my case they secured me a job as a Contractor so I had to set up a Limited Company, secure insurances, sign a lot of compliance documents etc. They supported me throughout the entire process. That’s so unique and an excellent service for the Oil & Gas Industry. I would highly recommend their services.
Arun Kumar - Data Solutions Architect - BP

"Having graduated as a mature student with an M-level Degree in Geological Oceanography, I applied to a number of companies through recruitment agencies. Almost immediately after registration, I was contacted by a member of the team at Working Smart, who discussed my experience and qualifications; a service that the other recruitment agencies I signed up with did not provide. As a graduate with little industry experience, they made me aware of a range of employment opportunities within the Oil & Gas industry and provided me with a professional and supportive contact that dealt with my applications personally. They really made me feel valued as a graduate seeking employment and were very active with their communication between myself and potential employers. I then applied for the position at Equipoise Software and was supported throughout the entire interview process in a professional and friendly manner, until I received a call telling me I was the successful candidate! I would highly recommend Working Smart to people in search of a career within the Oil & Gas sector, as my experience has shown me that they are the best at what they do!"
Dan Williams - Junior Sales Executive, Equipoise Software

"I registered with Working Smart to find a job in oil industry. The staff was helpful and knowledgeable. My application was assessed correctly and my skills were understood by the staff.

Ahmed Saeed - Structural Geologist, ALS Petrophysics

“Having recently graduated with an MSci Geology degree, I sent my CV to Working-Smart to aid in my search of my first job in Oil & Gas to begin my career. Working-Smart consistently supplied me with graduate opportunities suited to my experience and skills, and was one of the only recruitment consultancies I came across that took graduate recruitment seriously. After a short couple of months I was put forward for a position at Dolphin Geophysical. At each stage of the application process I was given friendly and personal advice, accurate information on the position and the company, and excellent feedback. The process took just over a week and I was successful in securing a fantastic position and opportunity at a leading company. I would strongly recommend Working-Smart to anyone in search of a career in Oil & Gas, both at graduate level and above.”

James Andrew – Business Development Manager EAME, Fugro Airborne

“I can't thank you enough for all your help finding me my new position, my old job was really taking its toll on me, I was so stressed, and so busy that I just had no time to devote to lengthy internet searches. So when your email arrived in my in-box out of the blue detailing this very interesting vacancy, I quite literally felt the weight in my shoulders lifting. Happily I was asked to interview, and very quickly afterwards was offered the job. I just would not have seen this position advertised if it were not for the Working Smart team. The team is now on the case trying to place my husband (Geological Data Administrator) in a position nearby too, which is so helpful and really considerate; this will hopefully help both of us to settle down south.”
Julie Roddy – Senior Petroleum Geology Analyst, C&C Reservoirs

“Thanks to Working Smart, I now have a job I am very happy in. The patience with which the consultants at Working Smart have dealt with my application is commendable.

I had been privy to Working Smart since leaving University some 10 years ago. Their services provided the momentum and options which would lead to a career progression in the industry. As a recruitment company, there is no doubt that their differentiator has to be the personal touch they offer. The Recruitment Officer, Office Manager and the Managing Director immersed themselves in making sure the right options and the necessary support were available prior and subsequent to interviews in order to make sure all parties involved were in the know and reading off the same page, something which is incredibly important when candidates livelihoods and families interests are at stake. A personal touch together with the professionalism and efficiency it brings, means Working Smart will be the first port of call should I or a friend in the industry need an alternative employer in the future.

You all are indeed 'smart workers', great head hunters and I'd like to say, 'sharp shooters', because I truly feel that I'm the right person for this particular job as it definitely is the kind of job I was looking for. I will definitely never hesitate to recommend you guys for your good service to both my friends and colleagues in this industry.
Gloria Adebo nee Okobi, Geoscience Application Support Consultant, Landmark

My painless transition from one company to another their rival was made as painless as possible thanks to the professionalism and level of understanding displayed by the team at Working Smart. A potentially awkward "head hunting" exercise was transformed into an amicable transition: no step seemed too far, including out of hours phone calls in both evenings and weekends - which proved invaluable. I can't thank the team enough for making my transition to a new role, in a new company, in another country as simple as possible.

Within the space of a fortnight I was headhunted, interviewed and recruited into the role of Support Geoscientist with a company in London. Throughout the process, I was given helpful feedback and information from Working Smart, and would thoroughly recommend them.
Nicholas Fosbery, Support Geoscientist, Petris

Having not been searching for work for a number of years, I found it extremely difficult to know where to start and wasted a great deal of time and effort on agencies who did little more than word-match my details with jobs they didn't understand. Working Smart fully understood both the technical and personal aspects of the role so I knew exactly what to expect when it came to the interview and when I started work. I would never have found this job without their help and I am especially grateful to them for taking care of the negotiation process. Ultimately, I have an excellent contract, with a prestigious company, to occupy me for the next six months and I look forward to discussing my options with Working Smart when it comes up for renewal.
Tim Brierley, Data Management Consultant

In the past I have invariably found that working with head-hunters was a bit of a hit and miss proposition. Working Smart has changed those views. In seeking a new position, Working Smart provided me with an extremely positive and professional experience, right from first contact, through the interview process and on to the hiring stage. The position offered was described perfectly, the interviews went smoothly and all the while Working Smart kept the communication channels open and frank. I would highly recommend Working Smart to anyone seeking new, top quality opportunities.
Colin Ivory, Senior Operations Geologist

I would like to take this opportunity to firstly let you know how pleased I was to receive an offer letter from GMI just before the Christmas break. Secondly, I would like to express my thanks for the pleasant and professional manner in which Working Smart kept me informed during the time from first sending my CV, through to the interview process and right up to the point of receiving the job offer. Should the occasion arise, I would most certainly recommend Working Smart to any of my business colleagues should they require the type of services you provide.
Michael Hodgetts, Sales Manager of EAME, GMI

I was ‘headhunted’ and recruited into my new role of North Sea Operations Manager through Working Smart. The service provided to me as a candidate by Working Smart was excellent. I was consistently provided with extensive and accurate information relating to my new organisation and each stage of the selection process was followed up with feedback conversations and further guidance. Based on this very personal experience I would have no hesitation in utilising Working Smart to resource key personnel in the future.

I applied via the Working Smart website for the advertised position of Business Development Manager (Seismic Processing Group). As this was an executive position, Working Smart conducted an in-depth phone interview in the first instance and presented their feedback, recommendations and my details to their client. They secured an interview for me and provided valuable background information relating to the company and job prospects. Having successfully demonstrated my experience and suitability for the position at interview, Working Smart worked very well with the client and ensured that all negotiation came to a successful conclusion for me. I would recommend Working Smart to any one looking for a new position and any employers looking for suitable candidates. I was extremely pleased with the service throughout.
