We build and grow teams around the world. Let's get started.

Singapore Recruitment Agency

First Technical Singapore Pte Ltd opened in 2018 following an increase in Oil & Gas jobs in Asia Pacific and Singapore. As part of the larger First Recruitment Group, First Technical Singapore is fully compliant with in-country legislation managing the recruitment process from start to finish.

A boom in the demand for skilled workers in the Oil & Gas industry has had a global impact. Singapore is feeling the positive impact of the upturn, being world leaders in the construction of exploration and production platforms, as well as FPSO conversion.

Looking to help companies in Singapore meet the demand, First Recruitment Group’s in-country team have a wealth of industry knowledge, and are able to provide insights into the local industry in Singapore, allowing us to serve the demands of both the industry and our clients alike.

In-country staff bring local expertise through Singapore recruitment agency

Our strong client relationships in the Oil & Gas industry are strengthened by the knowledge and insights of Madeleine Neo, our Singapore recruitment agency Operations Manager, based in the heart of Singapore’s central business district.

Working within a rapidly growing industry with fantastic potential, we believe our expertise puts us in a fantastic position to serve such demand. Our Singapore Operations Manager, Madeleine Neo, notes the major projects developing in the country saying, “We have been seeing an increase in Oil & Gas projects within the region. For example, Sembcorp Marine have secured new contracts worth an estimated $175 million to design and build a liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunker vessel, and for the repair and modernisation of 13 cruise ships. The LNG vessel will be built for a subsidiary of Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) at the Sembcorp Marine Tuas Boulevard Yard and will be Asia’s largest LNG bunker vessel - deployed to the world’s largest bunker port.”

Business opportunities in Singapore

The future also looks bright for hubs like Singapore’s Jurong Island, as a great deal of exploration is being done for the construction of VLFS for storage of oil and petroleum. Finding the talent for such innovative and large-scale projects is important, as big movers in the industry look to commence new developments and projects over the coming years.

First Recruitment Group has the ability to source the right candidates for the right roles operating in territories across Asia Pacific, with our offices in Singapore, Thailand and Australia, across numerous industries.

In-country recruitment compliance in Singapore

Our Singapore office offers stability for our clients, enabling us to take on full operational responsibility for arranging payroll, visas, work permits, taxes, local support and of course manpower, assuring clients of full compliance.

Speaking about the opening of the office, First Recruitment Group's Singapore Operations Director, Simon Calvert said; “The opening of our Singapore office represents a significant step in the growth of First Recruitment Group in South East Asia and builds on the support that we have been offering clients in the region from our offices in Australia and Thailand.

“Opening an office in the heart of the central business district allows us to support our clients project activity more closely whilst providing the opportunity to access other exciting markets in the region.”
