A leading Marine Oil and Gas Operator needed to outsource its Crew Management for 2 DP3 Construction vessels and 1 DP2 MPSV working in offshore Brazil, Mexico and Nigeria.
WRS was tasked with providing all contract manpower requirements and associated mobilisation and HR services for the life of the project, ensuring low attrition, efficient recruitment processes and smooth on-boarding, as well as enhancing the company’s policies and procedures. This required sourcing, deploying and mobilising hundreds of multinational contractors around the world.
Recruitment and mobilisation began in August 2015 for all three vessels. By the first sail away WRS had on-boarded 270 contractors. WRS have maintained an average “time to hire” of 10 days and an unprecedented conversion rate of three CVs per start. All three vessels have achieved 100% personnel utilisation without any downtime to our client, including an attrition rate of under 2%. Utilisation of Marine airfares has secured considerable cost savings for the client, and WRS received over 95% overall seafarer satisfaction through an anonymous contractor survey.
