Intellecor, a global human capital management firm that has helped organizations in more than 32 countries to attract, recruit, develop and retain top talent, said Shell Canada is expanding its RPO relationship to include recruitment of professional-level engineering and related management positions in support of the oil giant’s work in Alberta, Canada. This year, Shell Canada expects an increase of 1,800 new hires.
“Royal Dutch Shell is expanding in all areas of their business, and we have the capacity to serve all of its divisions,” said Intellecor President and CEO John Hamilton. “Intellecor’s business model and experience very much parallel the geographic growth anticipated by Shell.”
Intellecor began serving Royal Dutch Shell’s international recruitment needs earlier this year. To ensure that it not only meets, but exceeds, expectations of the expanded contract, Intellecor expects to increase the resources assigned to Royal Dutch Shell by 75 percent during the next six months.
Since 2001, Intellecor has placed more than 6,000 professionals in the mining industry alone.
“Our strategy for Royal Dutch Shell will rely heavily on traditional headhunting methods,” Hamilton said. “Due to the unique requirements of each position, we identify candidates based on direct experience and location. This guarantees a shorter learning curve to benefit Royal Dutch Shell.”
