NPI offers full-time, contract, temporary, flex-staffing and payroll services.

Whelan Petroleum Personnel Management. Whelan Petroleum Personnel Management Inc., is a Canadian company registered in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador with a mandate to provide human resource management and logistic management support to the on /offshore Oil and Gas and marine industry in Atlantic Canada, Canada and abroad. With over 30 years of experience in the industry, our staff has attained the expertise and personnel to meet performance standards worldwide.Committed to helping our clients succeed, WHELAN PETROLEUM PERSONNEL has become known as the reliable choice for personnel requirements in the oilfield industry. We are confident that our depth of experience and expertise will complement the on/offshore crewing requirements of our clients.

Executive Search. Our Executive Search Division specializes in the recruitment of Management and Senior Level Positions. Using the services of Executive Search simply reduces your screening and interviewing efforts. We can handle the bulk of the tedious work surrounding the recruitment process like screening hundreds of resumes, lining up the interviews, handling the acknowledgment and rejection letters. The value of reducing the hiring company's burden in recruitment time should not be underestimated. Freeing up key internal resources for other important work is a wise practice. We also offer third party recruiting for specialized positions a client may need to fill without using internal resources.As there is only an invoice issued when the placement has been successful, Executive Search takes all the risk for any time associated with the search for qualified people. There is also a 3/6 month guarantee that states "should a candidate not prove suitable or leave of their own accord within the guarantee period, replacement candidates will be provided at no cost". In the event that a replacement is not required, we will issue a 50% credit note.
