Energy-related talent-on-demand for a global strategy consulting firm

Energy-rated talent-on-demand for a global strategy consulting firm


Our client, a strategy consulting firm, was working on a project for an Indian Oil & Gas corporation, focusing on a high-capital expenditure, offshore deep-water project.

This project had relied on a project leader from Europe who had overseen operations for the past four years. Due to personal circumstances, this person had opted to depart from the project and return to the home location.

In order to swiftly fill this critical position and ensure minimal disruption to the project’s trajectory, the consulting firm sought our assistance in matching them to a seasoned Oil & Gas leader with extensive global project management experience in upstream Oil & Gas/EPC service companies. The chosen candidate would be leading the case team and directly collaborate with the end client CEO.

What we did

Outsized collaborated closely with stakeholders from the consulting firm to capture the key aspects of the requirement. Together, we streamlined the vetting process, ensuring efficiency and effectiveness.

Our approach for this requirement was a mix of on-platform matching, as well as off-platform options. Thanks to many previous projects in this vertical we had good options available, and could leverage our network for referrals and warm introductions.

Despite the niche nature of the requirement and the limited pool of such consultants available in the market, we quickly presented a strong shortlist of independent consultants, all meeting the client requirements.


The Outcomes

  • A vetted shortlist of independent consultants was presented to the consulting client in 3 days
  • The client interviewed and moved to contracting a senior professional from the pool of options curated by the Outsized team, and was very happy with the rest of the shortlist in terms of relevance
  • Within a week, the selected independent was onboarded seamlessly, ensuring no disruption to the project's progress
  • Furthermore, impressed by the professional's performance, the case team extended the professional's contract after 12 months
