Faststream opens Perth office

April 10 - International maritime, oil & gas and mining industry recruiter Faststream has opened an office in Perth, Australia, which will focus on filling positions for shipping companies, oil majors and mining companies active in the region.

Headed by Ozan Cabadag, an Australian national with an in-depth knowledge of the Australian shipping markets having previously worked with both P&O and Hapag Lloyd, the office will give local employers access to skilled foreign workers. The move comes after the recent announcement by the Australian government that it will be streamlining the visa process for US citizens, cutting down the previous three month plus process.

Ozan Cabadag explains: "Faststream has offices in the UK, USA and Singapore with access to a range of very specialised people. From geologists to ship operators, the Faststream Recruitment Group is able to locate talent globally and bring it into Australia on behalf of local and international employers."

Western Australia faces a particular skill shortage not only in the booming mining industry, but also the associated shipping sector. The Gorgon gas project also requires a vast range of experienced workers.
