OilCareers.com, the world’s leading online oil and gas jobs board, has appointed Karen Scott as the organisation’s head of Marketing.
Scott has over 15 years’ experience across a broad range of industries, with marketing roles at international organisations including Intercobra, International Paper, Mencap, Mitchell Kane Associates and Macphie of Glenbervie.
“My role is to take a leadership position and direct our marketing globally. Our offices are strategically located around the world but we remain a close-knit team – any given day I have contact with our global teams to ensure we stay ahead of the game,” Scott said.
“Today the energy industry is the most challenging, thought-provoking, headline-grabbing sector in the world, while being the most rewarding, exciting and diverse in equal measure.
“The opportunities available are enormous in both their scale and their number, and we believe we have an obligation to support the global oil, gas and renewable industries by putting those opportunities in front of the right candidates,” she added.
The company specialises in providing jobseekers with an easy and effective way of searching for a new career within the various international energy streams, but Karen said it was OilCareers.com’s international offering that provides the greatest strength.

We are well positioned to leverage our global scale with our offices in Dubai, Brisbane, Perth, Calgary and Houston,” Scott said.
“OilCareers.com provides an unparalleled service to both candidates and clients. Every month we feature up to 18,000 vacancies in all disciplines – from engineering, geosciences and health & safety, to marketing, IT and finance. We showcase opportunities in every region from Alberta to Aberdeen, Abu Dhabi to Australia, and everywhere in between.
“I am very creative and my aim is to outsmart our competitors - candidates and customers alike can expect to see a lot of exciting technological and marketing innovations emerge from OilCareers.com.”
Managing director Mark Guest said: “Karen brings a wealth of marketing talent and experience to OilCareers, gained from a broad range of senior roles with international organisations.
"Her appointment reflects our commitment to finding new and innovative ways to communicate with our customers and the global talent pool, ensuring we continue to attract those with the most sought-after skills to the most in-demand positions.
