“I have worked with Subsurface Global for five years. I have found both to be credible, honest and realistic; qualities that help to distinguish SSG from the majority of Oil and Gas recruiters. SSG recently helped me secure a contract, proof that they have good contacts and strong relationships that remain robust in these tough times. I would wholeheartedly recommend Subsurface Global to anyone looking to be represented to potential employers.”
