Search Agency Finalist for the 2018 Oil & Gas Awards Recruitment Agency of the Year, Manhattan Resources is a retained executive search and advisory services firm headquartered in Downtown Houston.

Manhattan Resources has been named a search agency finalist for the 2018 Oil & Gas Awards Recruitment Agency of the Year in Texas.

The Oil & Gas Awards Recruitment Agency of the Year recognizes that “in a hugely competitive marketplace, requiring skilled talent, efficient search firms and recruiters enable clients to focus on other business critical matters; safe in the knowledge a suitable pool of talent is coming through this channel.”

Houston Search Agency Finalist is Well Known for Retained Executive Search within the Oil & Gas Industry

Manhattan Resources has created its success in the Oil & Gas Industry through a focus on its mission to help its clients achieve their corporate objectives by building high-performance teams.  The company brings years of expertise and a time-tested retained search process to find talent with the perfect combination of skills, experience, and cultural background to fit each strategic role.

“Texas is a large and extremely competitive market when it comes to retained executive search,” said CEO Chris Schoettelkotte. “We are honored to be named a finalist for this award in a market and industry that we have proudly served for almost 20 years.”

Manhattan Resources drives value throughout the search process, spending time with its new clients in their environment and meeting with their leadership team, to ensure thorough technical and cultural understanding. “A strategic hire must be evaluated concerning the team in which it will operate,” said Schoettelkotte. “Just as great sports teams are built by sourcing players with complementary skills, so are great corporate leadership teams.”

Nuanced Skills to Ensure Cultural Fit are Uniquely used by this Search Agency Finalist to Assess Potential

Manhattan Resources works upfront to understand and define nuanced skills that the right candidate needs to enhance team relationships, and examines historical expectations and less clearly defined aspects of the business that may be impacted by or intersect with that role. The team then conducts extensive research to target individuals with the right experience to match the role, and the interpersonal skills and preferences to fit well within the company’s culture.

“This dedication to finding the right professional for the technical and cultural needs of the client, at the right stage of the professional’s career, is how we can provide our extended placement guarantee of a full year for strategic placements, and provide candidates that often have extensive ‘runway’ for future opportunities within the organization,” Schoettelkotte added. “Demand for our services increases not only when a position is difficult to fill with qualified talent, but perhaps counter-intuitively also when the labor pool increases, as companies hire us to proactively target the talent they need for their organizations.”
