Default Agencies that recruit for NOCs

This has been the closest thing to an open forum about all things Middle East, especially moving, working and living there.
For all those that currently work or have worked for National Oil Companies (NOC) in the Middle East, how did you guys get hired/called for an interview? Did you go through any employment agencies?

I am currently in the US looking for middle east opportunities in the oilfield

Thanks for the nod.

I'm afraid the Oil & Gas world is out of my normal sphere. There are a few posters here who know the industry though.
Getting into an NOC I imagine is a lot of perseverance applying directly, but probably more about a network or a contact inside who can share your details. They are all absolute monsters, so find someone you know who is in there already and ask for the intros.

I got hired for my current role at Qatar Petroleum through SPIE Oil and Gas agency. When I worked for Shell in Iraq, i was working through Fircroft. With BP it was Orion Engineering. There are lots of other agencies as well, I suggest looking at www.rigzone.com and www.oilandgasjobsearch.com as nearly every o&g agency will post on these websites.

You can also apply directly to oil companies in the ME on their online career portal, but in my own experience I've found working through an agency gets you a much higher salary, day rate can be anywhere from $600-$1200 per day depending on role and seniority.
