Staffing agency points to potential future staff shortages

June 7 - An employment and staffing agency that specialises in supplying hoisting and lifting, heavy lift and specialised transport personnel has passed its third anniversary and noted continuing industry trends that could lead to staff shortages in the n

Houten, Netherlands-based 12hoist4u considers that the growing sustainable energy market, especially the offshore windmill construction industry and the slowly increasing offshore decommissioning activities will see a rise in the need for competent lifting and hoisting personnel, especially in the heavy lifting segment.

All companies involved in the mentioned activities will face a shortage of such personnel in years to come.

Peter Verhoef, 12hoist4u managing director, says: "The materials handling industry is making huge efforts to improve its general safety awareness. Suppliers, appointed industry bodies and insurance companies have great difficulty in getting up-to-date on the developments within the industry. While there are lots of recruiting agencies offering offshore or shipping personnel, none has a full focus on lifting and hoisting operations."

12hoist4u says that it has supplied staff in Canada, South America, USA, Africa, Middle and Far East, Australasia and many parts of Europe. Its hire desk staff and consultants have extensive experience of dealing with international contracts issues, such as visa applications and travel arrangements.

12hoist4u has access to well over 600 industry specialists, partly from own staff, partly carefully selected self employed professionals.
