“I found the process of contracting with Global Offshore through JD Ross Energy very professional; everything was very well explained, and I was kept informed of the progress of the application throughout by Harry and Natalie. The timesheet portal is very easy to use and saves a huge amount of time for both me and the Project Managers… Overall, I now have one less thing to worry about, as all the stress has been taken out of the invoicing and accounts payable process for me."
Global Marine Group consists of four main brands – Global Marine, CWind, Global Offshore and OceanIQ – as well as having many partnerships globally:
We initially ran a pilot partnership programme with CWind in 2021 before GMG asked us to help them with their projects within the wider business. Please see our case study for CWind here, through which we became their exclusive MSP.
These requirements sometimes demand teams to be deployed at short notice to work on a project under very tight timescales.
This has been an ongoing challenge due to mobilisation issues relating to local immigration and employment laws. Since Brexit, GMG have faced unique challenges regarding the movement of their project teams across Europe and into the North Sea.
IR35 has also played a part in the legislative challenges faced when recruiting UK-based Limited Company specialist workers for projects in the UK and offshore, as well as the associated end user of labour responsibilities.
We have agreed a three-year deal to provide a managed service across the group after a successful implementation within CWind. This solution provides advice and guidance regarding GMG’s obligations as the end user of labour for UK-based Limited Company workers, both onshore and offshore.
The group has full access to our IR35 portal, allowing them to complete IR35 determinations, whilst taking reasonable care in doing so. This demonstrates our ‘partner over provider’ approach to our MSP solution.
Through our panel of immigration, employment, and compliance specialists, we have been able to offer project deployment advice relating to both VISA and local social security and taxation. This guidance has been invaluable for Global Marine Group projects and, again, has provided a long-term, sustainable solution to existing and potential future issues.
We have become a critical partner to Global Marine Group, assisting them to staff their projects. By early 2022, we issued 546 contracts to workers whilst facilitating IR35 determinations for GMG’s contractors, using software to demonstrate reasonable care at every stage of the process. This was a fully compliant service that we delivered to all contractors and Hiring Managers, saving GMG both time and money.
We fully integrated ourselves into GMG’s existing resourcing team, working alongside them to review their onboarding process. Rather than looking to replace the team, we equipped them with long-term skills and processes for their future hires. Our solution goes beyond providing transactional recruitment services and is a genuine partnership at every stage.
Our global offices allow us to have local knowledge across a huge range of regions, marketplaces, and niches. Get in touch to find out what else makes us different – and how we can tailor our solutions to your talent needs...
