Oil and Gas Jobs in Africa

We recruit for a wide range of jobs in Africa – our African clients include multi-national super-majors with assets on the continent, local E&Ps, NOCs, and service companies. With nineteen African countries producing significant amounts of oil and gas both on and offshore, it is a very important contributor to local economies in Africa – studies have estimated that approximately 57% of Africa's export earnings come from hydrocarbons.

The African countries with the highest levels of reserves and activity are Nigeria, Libya, Algeria, Angola, and Sudan – these 5 countries account for the majority of oil produced on the continent. International companies operating in the region include ExxonMobil, ENI, Sinopec, Total, Shell, Chevron, BP, and Petronas.

WRS has a strong presence in Africa, reaching from our trusted partner DRG Resourcing in Durban, South Africa, to our extensive work with clients in countries such as Nigeria, Algeria, and Botswana across our core Engineering markets.
