Russia to Riches: A Rensol Worker’s Story to Success Part 1

Many are called, but only a few are chosen.

Opportunities to work abroad are scarce, being deployed abroad with an ethical recruitment agency is a golden opportunity of a lifetime. Every worker is expected to treasure the limited chance to earn better and become successful by just being a hardworking and responsible flag bearer of the country while overseas.

Here is the first installment of success stories we collated from our successful hires deployed to different parts of the world.

Ramel Tanon Sofranes was deployed to Russia to work as a tig/arc welder for Cherepovets and Yamal LNG Gas Plant project for Renaissance Heavy Industries (RHI) during our first batch of deployment, last March 2016.

Ramel shared that he came upon an advertisement from Rensol in Facebook. He tried his luck to apply where he passed the skills trade testing without any fees to pay. He was urgently deployed to Russia with his qualifications.

He survived to withstand working for 10 hours during the winter season with an extreme temperature of negative 30 degrees Celsius.

“Mahirap mawalay sa pamilya, mahirap dahil sobrang lamig, mahirap communication doon, mahirap salita nila, pero pagdating sa trabaho, kayang kaya (It is hard to live far away from your family, it’s hard because it is too cold, it’s hard to communicate, their language is difficult to understand, but when it comes to working, everything is doable.),” he shared.

Ramel was sent to the good hands of RHI who he claims to be very good as employers.

“Maganda at walang bitin ang sahod, ayos din naman ang accommodation (It is good and there is no delay on salary, the accommodation provided for us is also great.),” he said.

Thousands of Filipino skilled professionals were already deployed to Russia.  Filipino workers were tapped and have been provided with a quality job opportunity through Rensol Recruitment’s partnership with most of RHI’s gigantic projects.

This opportunity definitely helped his family to reach the greener pasture in life.

“Nais ko lang magpasalamat sa inyo (Arnold Mamaclay) at sa Rensol dahil nagkaroon ako ng pagkakataon.. thank you very much sa Rensol agency at wala akong ginastos at ako’y nakaalis patungong Russia (I just want to thank Rensol because I was able to fly to Russia without paying for anything),” Ramel said.

Renaissance Heavy Industries (RHI) has been one of the long-standing satisfied partners of Rensol in providing quality job opportunities to Filipinos for almost five challenging yet productive years. Some of RHI’s projects which involved Rensol’s manpower services are Yamal LNG Plant, Gas-To-Gasoline Project (GTG), Turkmenhimiya Ammonia and Urea Plant, Sibur Tobolskneftekhim Polypropylene Plant, Phosagro Ammonia Plant, etc. Rensol has provided thousands of pipe fitters, scaffolders, welders, and riggers to the said projects, both in Russia and Turkmenistan.

RHI contracted Filipino workers from Rensol Recruitment to man its mechanical, construction, civil activities, and other EPC services which includes concrete works, steel erection, equipment erection, heavy lifting, piping works, cable pulling, insulation, and painting.

Ramel was able to buy his own car, which he uses as a source of income here in the Philippines. He is now working as a full-time driver for the ride-sharing service mobile application, Grab.

Rensol, being an ethical recruitment agency, reaches out especially to the less privileged Filipinos to alleviate their lives. The agency doesn’t collect anything to make opportunities attainable even by those in the poorest of the poor. That’s why it is with great delight that we celebrate even the smallest successes of our deployed workers overseas.

Rensol Recruitment Ties the Knot with Sankyu Saudi Arabia

Sankyu, an international service provider for engineering, logistics, and operational support originated in Japan, tied a partnership knot with Rensol Recruitment – the fastest growing recruitment agency in the Philippines, in upgrading their manpower of skilled professionals for maintenance, rotating, and static equipment to big projects based in Rabigh/Yanbu, Saudi Arabia.

Sankyu, which name was derived from the English expression “thank you”, expressed their overwhelming appreciation to Rensol for attracting hundreds of potential new hires and for effectively selecting the most fitting and most qualified candidates in every vacancy provided through the agency’s intensive recruitment practices and backgrounding.

With the fountain of world-class laborers in the Philippines, Rensol’s recruitment and headhunting schemes were able to provide solutions to what Sankyu specifically asked for.

Latest deployment of workers bound to Sankyu Saudi Arabia already commenced with the start of the new year, 2019.

Sankyu has been requiring workers with oil and gas and maintenance experiences for the following positions: piping engineer, civil engineer, piping supervisor, rotating supervisor, rotating foreman, rotating technician, welder, pipe fitter/ fabricator, estimator, planner, rigger 3, electrical foreman, electrical technician, instrument foreman, instrument technician, static supervisor, static technician, and E&I supervisor.

The century-old company has been expanding their network overseas for over 30 years now. Sankyu’s technology and services have been competing to be forefront in the world by recruiting highly- specialized technicians and equipping them with development programs to upgrade their skills and to adopt proper discipline.

Sankyu and Rensol shared this mutual vision to invest a lot in human resources to achieve the top spot in the industry. Sankyu find this as a common denominator with Rensol as on how the agency values people as invaluable assets to attain excellence in the global arena. Like Sankyu, Rensol also serves more than just being a service provider, they are also passionate of providing an above and beyond service as solution providers.

We, at Rensol, are more than thankful not just for the opportunity to be an excellent manpower provider for Sankyu, but a reliable partner for them as well, to foster a lasting relationship within the long run.

When the Talent Well Has Run Dry for Oil and Gas Industry Recruitment

The oil and gas industry recruitment is in need to source 120,000 new employees globally over the next 10 years, according to PricewaterhouseCoopers research.

Along with the rise in the number of job opportunities is the shrinking on the pool of highly-skilled professionals. The Oil & Gas Global Salary Guide 2015 reveals that the skill shortage resulted from inadequate knowledge transfer to successors and too low number of new energy entrants.

Oil and gas industry recruitment is generally a candidate-driven landscape due to skills shortage and the niche expertise that is required. It’s like fishing in a small pond with a few fishes, along with a group of fishermen.

Hiring local workers is difficult for many countries as the skill set of the local workforce doesn’t match the immediate needs of many oil and gas companies.

The industry is losing the competition for talent recruitment especially with attracting millennials, Apparently, this generation sees it as dirty, difficult, dangerous, and lacking work-life balance. Current recruitment methods are failing to reach millennials, the largest portion of today’s workforce.

Industry Recruitment Agencies

Aside from targeting the young people, the industry needs a continuous pipeline of foreign workers with the required skills, experience, and work ethics. The success of an oil and gas industry recruitment campaign relies a lot on the keen choice of a manpower recruitment agency.

Oil and gas industry recruitment welcomes any people with the necessary skill and the willingness to learn, no matter what the background is. Every oil and gas recruiter know that skills can always be taught but being culture fit is another.

Workers with enough experiences in automotive, construction, engineering, and any other related industries can surely adapt to the high standards of work performance in the oil and gas industry. These industries have many workers who could possess skills that are transferable to other industries. Recruitment agencies can definitely identify these competencies from workers.

The industry can be assured that new recruits can meet the job and safety requirements. Placement agencies guarantee that every deployed worker can apply their knowledge and experiences as reflected in their degrees and certifications.

Contracting oil and gas industry recruitment agencies is the best way to handle the hiring of oil and gas talents because they screen individuals and go over their experiences and skill set in detail. They are keen in providing the requirements of the company as exactly as they need. It is more convenient for oil and gas companies to hire less-experienced workers up to recruiting senior executives with precision.

With fewer people to deal with unlike any other industries, building relationship is a must in the exercise of headhunting. Recruiters generally work with intelligent and experienced people, experts in their field across a variety of roles. Oil and gas industry recruitment is a partnership towards the realization of any oil and gas project no matter how big or small.
