M. Copperwheat – Survey Client Rep

Having been in the offshore industry now for some 24 years, I personally have always preferred the close family scenario when consulting with agents. HPRs approach makes you feel part of their family. You are not made to feel like just a CV on a database within a larger merged consortium of acquired agencies. I have also learned to fully appreciate the effort and time involved in maintaining a high works ethos within HPR.

Iain and Mieke Petrie along with their team are so friendly, approachable and take all that this industry can throw at them in their stride. This of course alleviates the pressure on us the workers away from our families.

I’m always behind and promoting the good folk through life and these guys get my vote!

R. Stables – Survey Client Rep

I have been with HPR (UK) since it started in 2005, having followed Iain Petrie from another agency. Iain initially, and now HPR as a whole, have treated me professionally and fairly. Whether it’s dealing with Mieke or Marianne in accounts, Thomas Bashyam keeping me working or Iain himself, all treat me as a person and not just a pay roll number!

The correct “person for the job” has been a vital point in my keeping with HPR as I believe not just their reputation but my own relies on it. My career has progressed from On Line Surveyor through to Client Representation and I thank Iain and his team for helping me with this.

I would and do recommend HPR!

N. Pearson – Client Rep

At all times, all members of staff were professional and courteous, keeping me advised of developments whilst I was working for the client as an Offshore Construction Manager.

My travel was always well organised, my invoices were always acknowledged and punctual and having had many years experience of working for various agencies in the UK and internationally, my whole experience of HPR was a pleasure.

G. Duncan – ROV Supervisor

…I have been using HPR for many years and have always been completely satisfied with their performance as an employment agency. They do an excellent job, are always punctual, and offer the most competitive rates in the industry…

P. Stern – Project Manager

I have been working through HPR since its first days. They have provided me with the guidance and support to forge my career along the path I have wanted to follow. They have enabled me to experience the majority of offshore survey jobs (pipe & umbilical lay, inspections, construction, wind farm etc), in positions from online surveyor to client rep and into project management. Wherever in the world I have worked I have always felt secure knowing HPR look after their people, not because they have to, but because they want to. I only work with one agency and that’s HPR and would recommend them to anyone who wants peace of mind when working.

J. Mathieson – Survey Client Rep

I have worked through HPR almost since the day they started and over the years have been very happy with the thoroughly professional, pro-active and approachable attitude they have to me as one of their contractors.
