Retained Search Reviews

My experience with Brunel was with Jason Kajehnouri - Recruitment Team Lead. Jason was a pleasure to work with throughout the entire recruiting process. He was punctual in his commitments to our interaction times, respectful of my existing schedule, and accommodating with his availability to support me through the entire recruitment process. Jason represents the epitome of professionalism. He was organized, eager, and passionate about getting me the proper information of the scope of the job responsibilities and helped explain the vision of the recruiting company. I was very pleased with the way the process was handled by Jason and he made me comfortable going through a potentially stressful time as a career change.

Brunel is a great contracting company in the Oil and Gas sector, providing right talents required for construction, engineering , commissioning , startup and operations. During my experience with the team at Brunel, right from the start with the help of very professional and caring team, H1 B visa transfer formalities were completed within short time. Induction at job site was effortless by guiding me through the transition process. The benefits package is also very attractive with a variety of options available to choose from depending on needs of family. My experience with Payroll, HR team , Site manager and recruitment team was very pleasing and the personal care extended to us was greatly appreciated.
