LONDON, January 24, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ — Hays, the leading global specialist recruiting group, has announced further expansion into the United States with the establishment of operations in Houston, Texas. This is the second Hays office to open in the U.S. this year and it will focus on the recruitment of skilled staff for the oil and gas industry.
The development of the Houston office will be spearheaded by Hays North American President John Faraguna, a long-term Houston resident with a BS and MS in Geology and many years of experience working in the industry. Faraguna will be supported by Matt Underhill, global director of Hays who oversees the development of the oil and gas business for Hays around the world.
“We have a great opportunity to become valued partners of energy companies and the service industry. The highly skilled workforce in this sector such as geophysicists, reservoir engineers, drilling engineers and IT professionals, are a key asset for all the companies involved in finding, producing, refining and distributing oil, gas and associated products,” said Faraguna.
Houston is the home of many companies with whom Hays has already established relationships in Europe, the Middle East, Asia or South America and, as such, the recruitment specialist’s global reach and focus on recruitment and staffing excellence will assist clients in finding these professionals either on a permanent or contract basis.
