Project Highlight – Tunisia

Project Highlight – Tunisia

CCL has been delivering expert staffing services across the African continent since 1994 and are proud to announce that we recently completed a scope of work in Tunisia which has been selected as our 2020 Project of the Year. CCL managed and administered the payroll as well as the logistical and operational remit of the project commissioning team in the Ghadames Basin.

Our in-country team, in collaboration with CCL UK and CCL US, provided a team of 115 Commissioning Engineers, Technicians and Managers to assist with construction of the 370km pipeline connecting the Central Process Facility of Nawara to the Gabès treatment unit.

“CCL delivered a robust financial solution ensuring seamless tax and payrolling services whilst mobilizing and providing in-country support of over 100 engineers. Our accomplishments on this project are a testament to the quality of our client relationships and clearly understanding both our contractors’ and clients’ expectations. We are proud to offer best in class solutions to our clients that operate throughout the world” – Global Finance Director, Matt Smallwood.

CCL’s Continued Expansion Across the USA

CCL’s Continued Expansion Across the USA

CCL opened its first US office in 2001, primarily providing our services to the Oil and Gas industry in Houston, Texas. Since then the scope and reach of our technical staffing and consultancy services has continued to grow across the country. Over the past 18 months, CCL has placed personnel, consultants, and contractors in 17 new states across major oil and gas, infrastructure, power, renewables, and engineering industries.

During the past 5 years CCL US has placed great importance on the need to diversify in terms of sectors, locations and the services we provide. Even with this expansion into diversified fields we remain fully committed to maintaining a premium quality service to our Clients, Consultants and Candidates.

Not only does the growth of CCL across the US add value to our clients, but we continue to increase our network of highly qualified and skilled professionals seeking to advance their career

Geoff Owen, Director – North America said, “During my 3 years with CCL Global I have had the pleasure of witnessing us break into new sectors and geographies alike throughout the United States. It is through diligent and cohesive teamwork that we are now compliantly supporting clients and projects in over 30 states.”

Chris Maltby, Managing Director – ‘’it’s exciting to see the burgeoning of the US operation from its origins of being a local Houston operation into a fully-fledged diversified US wide operation’’

 

 

CCL Global Establishes New Office In Paris

CCL Global Establishes New Office In Paris

CCL was established in the UK in 1981, and since then has made great strides to expand services and offices across the European continent. During that time, CCL has opened offices in Scotland, Norway, and Ireland. Paris was strategically chosen as the next area of expansion due to our growing presence in the nuclear power generation sector as well as a commercially placed CCL office within mainland Europe.  With Paris becoming the epicenter of the nuclear sector, CCL will now offer workforce solutions and in-country support to our clients and contractors based in France

“Over the past 18 months customer demand for our services across France has increased, coupled with the sanction of key Nuclear and Renewable projects we felt it was the optimum time to expand and further increase our service offerings to our existing and future client base, our initial footprint will be Paris, however the teams are already working on plans to expand into Southern France…” said Keith Jones, CCL UK’s Business Director who leads CCL’s client development in France.

“…What can our customers expect from CCL in France? Drawing upon 40 years of staffing solutions experience our partners in France can, and no doubt will expect the same best in class service we provide across the US, Africa and other parts of Europe.”

“The decision to expand our presence into France was a logical step within our overall business growth strategy.’’ Says Managing Director, Chris Maltby. ‘’This is an exciting opportunity to add value to our Clients in France & will ensure the expansion of the CCL’s suite of workforce solution services within the French market.’’

Sub-Saharan Africa Project Highlight

Mozambique Bespoke Client Support

CCL have successfully completed the delivery of a 14-month-long project alongside a long-term regional client in Mozambique. On short notice, our client received a project award refurbishing an electrical substation on the outskirts of Maputo. Given the short notice, this gave limited time to mobilise and undertake the delivery of their scope of work.

Due to the short lead time and our client’s limited experience in Mozambique, CCL developed a bespoke plan in collaboration with our client which allowed them to focus solely on the engineering aspects of their scope. CCL acted as their in-country vehicle for all requirements related to the mobilisation of an international workforce whilst financing and managing their immediate procurement requirements.

Services provided and procured by CCL on this project included:

Recruitment and employment of both local and expatriate personnel
HR support and policy implementation
Payrolling which included fully compliant, in-country taxes and contributions
Mobility including flights, transfers and local induction for expatriates
Work/Residency permits for foreign nationals
Accommodation
Housekeeping services
In-country transport (vehicles and drivers)
IT support
Office space and furniture

CCL Mozambique Country Director Joao Teixeira stated, “CCL’s deep knowledge of the Mozambican market, coupled with our ability to tailor turnkey services at short notice was instrumental in maximising our client’s capacity to deliver this project. CCL’s ability to provide bespoke solutions to complex challenges demonstrably impacted our client’s success in both the award and delivery of their scope of work. Knowing that such a facility is available to them gives our clients the confidence and capacity to tender on opportunities that they might normally overlook.”
