Rovuma LNG

Case Study


In early 2017, our client established a presence in Maputo, Mozambique to support the Rovuma LNG project and needed to staff the office with experienced professionals from the local market, as well as a team based in the Cabo Delgado province. 


With no previous experience in country, a supplier was needed that could source talent across a variety of disciplines from both the local and international markets, advise on local regulations and ensure compliant operations.

  • Staff the new office in Maputo, as well as a team based in the Cabo Delgado province with experienced individuals from the local market
  • Source additional personnel required in the United Kingdom and United States, with potential requirements in Italy and Japan
  • Maximise local content development through best in class recruitment service
  • Deliver compliant employment outsourcing, immigration, tax administration and destination services across all project locations
