Offshore oil rig employment companies

For job-seekers, looking for the employment either through offshore oil rig employment companies (recruiters) providing staffing and crewing services in oil and gas upstream sector in general, or through direct job providers, who are operators that run or subcontract offshore oil rigs (platforms, semi-submersibles and other types), it should be useful to understand and know beforehand, that for this industry it is characteristic to offer employment contracts that are tied to a specific project. With the exception of executive positions on offshore oil rigs, the other trades are hired to perform a specific offshore oil rig job exactly until the mission is complete and there is no need to have an offshore position filled, be it a stage of exploration or an offshore oil rig decommissioning employment. Once the project or its stage is over, the low-end and other non-executive staff is dismissed. The contracts for job from offshore oil drilling provider will normally last from 3 months to one year. The contracts with duration of one year are usually extendable, if the project lasts.
