Company History

Subsurface Global formed in 2008, driven by a strong desire to contest industry standards, an ambition to advance niche E&P recruitment capabilities, and ultimately ‘Challenge the Future‘. Over the last decade, we have achieved our goals, developed an internationally recognised and reputable organisation, and serviced the Upstream Oil & Gas industry to high standards. We are very proud of our achievements and all of the individuals who led us here.

    Subsurface Global formed to 'Challenge the Future'

    Set up in Scotland, our business was built on a foundation of achieving results while maintaining a reputation for integrity, honesty and reliability. We are proud to uphold these principles to this day.

    Expanding into the Middle East

    Subsurface Global set up its first overseas office in Abu Dhabi, UAE. We are proud of our UAE business and long-term relationships in Abu Dhabi, as well as the employees and consultants who have grown this business unit since 2009. Abu Dhabi proved to be a logical step and we were fortunate to hire some great people that are still with us today.

    Industry Boom

    By 2012, Subsurface Global were a well-established consultancy services and recruitment organisation within the E&P industry. Our staff and consultants were recognised as prominent members of the upstream community, working extremely hard to develop relationships with a variety of international E&P operating companies.

    New Offices

    With growing demand we expanded with new offices in the UK, UAE and Iraq. We invested heavily in technology and processes to keep our business safe and secure. Following the 2015 recession we remained resilient, standing by long serving clients.

I cannot recommend Peter highly enough – his efforts on my behalf were above and beyond anything I’ve experienced before, and he found an absolutely perfect placement for me, which was, in effect, created at his suggestion. Highly professional in all dealings at every step along the way.
