Kenya Office

First Recruitment Group (East Africa) Limited, our office in Kenya, was founded to support the Oil & Gas industries in East Africa.

Managing Director, Esther Evans, from her base in Kenya, has over 20 years of experience in the industry either directly employed by Oil & Gas companies or in a role supporting them.

The current Oil & Gas industry in Kenya

Oil discoveries in Kenya and Uganda, and Gas discoveries in Mtwara Tanzania are causing a global stir in exploration activities. We expect to see a lot of developments in the region in some years to come. This region will be a centre of attraction in the areas of Oil and Gas.

There is also work potential in Pipeline Engineering and Construction – helping to monetise the discoveries.

Our services

The company, in East Africa, specialises in the search, selection and supply of engineering, technical, IT and corporate personnel to clients throughout Kenya.

Our office in Kenya is strongly committed to introducing local skilled workers into the Oil & Gas sector. We are constantly updating our database with the details of Oil & Gas workers.

We have been supplying recruitment services in Africa from our Ghana Office for many years. We have found it helps clients to have direct contact with a specialised recruitment consultancy based in their own country, and because of this we opened up in Kenya.

Our experience

In 2013-2014, one of our clients, Tullow Oil, was seeking to recruit even more professionals into their company - and came to us for assistance. We opened the Kenya office – to specifically support Tullow Oil to recruit the best candidates for their roles.

As a result, we have become an established recruitment consultancy in the Oil and Gas Industry in Kenya and we are able to utilise this experience by helping other clients with their recruitment requirements
