In August, Atlas announced its goal to grow its presence in Australia for both local and international maritime personnel and clients.
Now, this goal has been realised as Atlas opens its doors in Perth on the West Coast of Australia.
The History of Oil & Gas in Australia
Australia has a long history of oil and gas production and the ongoing development of its substantial reserves is strengthening the country’s position as a leading global player in this market sector.
Opening this office has its advantages such as access to world-leading research and development in oil and gas technologies, significant oil and gas reserves and is within close proximity to the rapidly growing Asian energy markets.
Meet our Specialists
Atlas has selected Ian Marshall to become the Regional Manager for the Perth office due to his extensive network and his business development experience and skills. Ian also has a background in the European Market and has the local expertise of the market in Australia. With his proven track record, Ian has previously worked for Subserv Pro (a subsidiary of Atlas Professionals) another key player in these markets and developments within the industry. In addition to Ian’s expertise, Jasmine Adams will act as Operations Support to help personnel with all commercial, administrative and mobilisation requirements.
The aim of the Perth office is to provide recruitment and recruitment process by outsourcing to some of the world’s leading Oil, Gas and Mining/Marine companies throughout Australia and Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. Besides this, expanding our vision on the continent in cooperation with Atlas’ Singapore office is also a main target. With this strong team as the driving force, Atlas’ Australia office will ensure new opportunities for personnel on both a permanent and contract hire basis.
Atlas’ Singapore Manager Martine Rondeel, explains the importance of opening this office in the current market: “Even in the downturn, it’s very important to keep a strong focus on expansion and creating opportunities. Perth is the hub for the Oil & Gas industry in Australia, with many links to the APAC region. I am very excited that we now have an actual presence in Perth and will be even closer to our clients and professionals to optimise our service.”
Aspirations for the Future
Atlas has high aspirations to be one of Australia’s most respected recruitment companies and will ensure that we always retain the focus and flexibility of a specialist personnel provider.
