Global Workforce Planning & Resourcing Manager to Drive Efficient Allocation of Talent

Mark Dolman has joined EnerMech in the newly created Global Workforce Planning & Resourcing Manager role to help further drive the company’s growth objectives with the efficient allocation of talent.

Mark has more than 20 years of energy sector experience and joins EnerMech from McDermott, where he was Director of Talent Acquisition Strategy and Workforce Planning.

Raised in Yorkshire, England, Mark’s career began with the Merchant Navy in 1993 where he undertook a Marine Cadetship sponsored by Shell and qualified as a deck and engineering officer.

In 2002, he was seconded to Shell Brunei in an onshore human resources position to support a worldwide succession planning project. Here, he led a major training programme to help local Bruneians transition into seafaring roles previously been held by expat workers on board the government’s LNG vessels. As a result of his work, he received recognition from the Sultan of Brunei. His success led to a recruitment and training position with Chevron Shipping, working out of the UK, USA, India and the Philippines.

Mark relocated to the Middle East in 2008 and held senior HR recruitment roles with both Qatar and Abu Dhabi’s national oil companies. While at ADNOC, he was selected to join its Project Management Office, where he devised and implemented talent acquisition initiatives across the Group.

In his newly created position at EnerMech, Mark will be based in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates. Working closely with the regional teams, his key priority will be to define all critical talent needs to enhance the business’ already robust talent pool to meet customer expectations. This will involve detailed planning across geographies, business lines and skill-sets, including essential global mobility, tax and visa compliance.

Mark, who reports directly into EnerMech’s Chief HR Officer Phil Ogden, will also be the focal point for the company’s strategic resourcing centres, including the Philippines. In the coming months he will also oversee the implementation of new fit-for-purpose workforce planning and recruitment systems and tools aimed to help simplify processes and enhance consistency and transparency across the organisation.
