HR Head Recruitment for Our Client in The Energy Sector


Our Client in the Energy Sector approached us to help them recruit a Head of Human Resources who understood the business and could create an enabling environment to drive its expansion and revenue generation plans. 

About Client 

Our client is an integrated energy and infrastructure firm with activities spanning across the Upstream, Midstream and Downstream sectors of the petroleum industry. Since inception, the company focuses on providing energy solutions in Nigeria and the West African hub through trading of Crude Oil, Natural Gas Liquids (NGLs), Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), Refined Petroleum Products and associated intermediate and by-products. 

The Problem 

The right people are the greatest asset in any organisation. This fact was not lost on our client. They were looking to expand their business operations in their sector and also to drive their revenue. As a result, they needed a Head of HR to come in and boost employee relations as well as manage the workforce so as to ensure that they work together towards achieving the organisation’s business expansion and revenue generation goals. They also needed the individual to be conversant with all aspects of Human Resources, ranging from employee relations to business acumen. In addition, they needed the individual to have a background in the Oil & Gas/Energy sector. 

The Solution 

We engaged in a session with the client and we ensured we understood the specifications of the client and the criticality of the role. The client didn’t need just any Head of HR, they needed an experienced professional who understood the business of the business and who can get started on their expansion and revenue generation drive. 

Therefore, we were able to develop well-rounded strategy that included setting a project timeline, developing a success profile of the candidate, using a wide range of sourcing channels and methods such as LinkedIn, referrals and also using our database. We were then able to shortlist the best candidates, and after undergoing a competency-based assessment, we arrived at the best of them. 


Our robust recruitment strategy was able to deliver 5 candidates that matched the specifications of the client. They were then left with enough qualified choices to choose from for their organisation who would take charge of their business expansion and revenue drive.
