Dubai, September 17, 2012
Oilcareers.com, the world’s largest online dedicated oil and gas job board, has been named the ‘Best Job Board’ at the 2012 Global Recruiter Asia Pacific Recruitment Industry Awards.
The award was presented at a gala dinner at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.

The summit offered an opportunity for everyone working in the region, or considering a move to the region, to find out more about what makes the industry tick and how best to tap into a market boasting enormous opportunities, the statement said.
Naming Oilcareers.com “Best Job Board” the judges said the company’s offering was “By far the most professional. They have a huge following, good thought leader ideas, and are industry experts with the potential to grow.”
OilCareers.com managing director, Mark Guest, said the win recognised the company’s commitment to matching the largest energy companies around the world with the most skilled and sought-after candidates.
“With one million registered job seekers, and more than eight million page impressions on our site every month, OilCareers.com has become the giant of online recruitment within the oil and gas industry, with more visitors, users, and CVs than any other specialist recruitment website.”
“World-leading record investments are still being made in the offshore segment throughout Asia Pacific, significantly higher than many other traditional provinces including the North Sea. The demand for engineering and technical expertise is ongoing, not only for exploration and production (E&P) work within the immediate region but in support of the numerous major plays coming out of Australia.”
“Across the entire region, a large number of disciplines are in increasing demand, including naval architects, subsea engineers, construction advisors, project controls specialists, QA/QC, safety engineers and process engineers. In terms of the global talent crunch, Asia Pacific may be well poised for the future through the comparably large numbers of new engineering graduates entering the workforce here, particularly in Vietnam.”
“We have invested in our global operations, ensuring our offering matches the requirements of the energy industry and those seeking to enter the sector. I am very pleased that our efforts and successes have been recognised on such a prestigious stage,” he concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
