Supporting Our Workforce Across the Globe – Africa Edition

Supporting Our Workforce Across the Globe – Africa Edition

During these unprecedented and challenging times, CCL’s support services remain uninterrupted for our contractors and workforce across the world. In a year that has seen a lot of employment uncertainty and marketplace volatility, we would like to take the opportunity to wish our African partners, clients, contractors and employees good health and a speedy return to normal.

With travel restrictions in place for the foreseeable future, it is imperative to promote high calibre national personnel across the African continent. During our time working in the region, we have made diligent efforts to support highly qualified nationals and place them on local assignments whenever possible.

Having worked in Africa for close to 30 years CCL have a vast database of project-ready and exceptionally qualified local personnel. In the last 10 years, CCL have gained a vast depth of African expertise having supported several major projects across the energy, power, renewables and mining industries.

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.”

Project of the Year Highlight

CCL Global announced the completion of a major scope of work on the Front-End Engineering of an $8 billion project, which will be integrated to create one of the largest petrochemical complexes in the world.

As the client’s sole supplier on this phase of the project, CCL were responsible for identifying and supplying a full Project Management Team to lead and oversee the FEED Contractors. The engineering was completed across multiple locations in Asia and the United States, with the 28-person team comprised of locals, repatriated dual-nationals and Western expats. In addition to staffing and contracting the Engineering and Project Management Team, CCL’s service highlights included:

Contract Staffing
Payrolling
Visa Sponsorship
Logistics and Travel
Local and International Salary Benchmarking
Cost of Living Analysis
Development of Travel/Rotational Policy

With engineering on the project undertaken across the Far East, Asia-Pacific, Europe and the United States, CCL provided a custom plan to improve sourcing efficiencies for the end-client as well as offer solutions to challenging staffing issues. Paul Popovic, Divisional Head of Engineering for CCL said, “this was a flagship project for CCL in many ways, but it highlights our ability to offer technical workforce solution services tailored to the needs of our client in a consultative manner.”

CCL’s Project of the Year came as a result of the hard work of our engineering recruitment division and expert operations team which managed the ongoing support of our team of contractors. The successful implementation of these type of projects demonstrates the value brought to our clients and the hands-on approach we take to solving difficult workforce challenges on the most significant projects.
