Success on Two Global Projects

A large petrochemical company, who is a major producer of ethylene, propylene, polyethylene, and a range of specialty chemicals, required a partnership with a robust recruitment company that could handle complex global mobilization strategies for two projects spanning the full project life-cycle. The projects would be running simultaneously with a need for a partner who could swiftly recruit and onboard top talent, and mobilize them across the world as project needs required. The projects will help meet the increasing global demand for the petrochemicals market, marking the importance of a strategic partner with the experience to exceed performance goals.
The Solution

Within a matter of days of the contract being established, the Global Edge was able to place key management positions within the projects to kick off the execution of the recruitment and mobilization strategies set for the client. 

Both projects required the sourcing and recruitment of key talent across multiple disciplines, including engineering, fabrication, and construction, with experience supporting global projects with similar scopes. The Global Edge was able to identify that talent and onboard them seamlessly, while coordinating the mobilization logistics for everyone to ensure the client’s needs were met while also maintaining peak comfort and flexibility for the contractors.

The Outcome

The Global Edge was one of four vendors chosen to support both projects and has successfully mobilized and managed logistics for talent across the US, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. We currently support contractors in South Korea, Thailand, Qatar, and three key US locations. The Global Edge supports recruitment efforts daily as new needs arise from the client for both projects and are set up to continue that support as the projects enter new phases of development.

Global Edge has gone the extra mile, not only to ensure that all my needs are met, but also make feel like part of the team.
