Q-Sourcing Servtec and Worldwide Recruitment Solutions announce joint venture to support Ugandan oil & gas projects
Global recruitment and workforce solutions providers Worldwide Recruitment Solutions Ltd (WRS) have entered into a JV agreement with East African focused Q Sourcing Servtec (QSS).
The business, which will trade as WQS Recruitment Services Ltd (WQS), will provide a number of key services to support the Oil & Gas supply chain in Uganda, including recruitment, payroll, immigration, global mobility, skills training, and logistics support.
The new JV brings 35+ years of experience delivering recruitment and associated workforce solutions to major Oil & Gas projects in Africa, and 15+ years of working specifically in Uganda.
“Uganda has been on our radar as an emerging Oil & Gas prospect since 2012 when we supported the initial well operations with the main field operator and we have been in discussions with Q Sourcing Servtec ever since,” said Mark Brown, Chief Executive Officer of WRS. “We were looking for a partner with local expertise that carries the same high standards when it comes to recruitment and workforce management, and Q Sourcing stood out from day one, sharing our quality focussed ethos as a best-in-class service provider to contractors and clients alike.”
Patrick Mbonye, CEO of Q Sourcing, added, “This is an exciting time for Uganda and its people. When WRS approached us with the concept of combining their international reach with our local expertise, the concept was exciting. During the due diligence period, it was clear that WRS shared the same quality focussed approach and their track record speaks for itself. We look forward to combining our expertise and achieving great things together for our clients and contractors.”
WQS Recruitment Services is a registered LLC in Uganda and is registered on the National Supplier Database with the Petroleum Authority in Uganda to supply recruitment and associated services to the Oil & Gas supply chain in Uganda.
