About HPR UK


HPR UK was founded in 1997 by Managing Director Iain Petrie but its heritage goes back to the 1980’s when Iain worked offshore. Having had an in-depth exposure to the industry, he recognised an opportunity to improve the efficiency of personnel recruitment and a growing need for companies to complement their in-house staff with qualified and experienced contract personnel.

HPR UK has an enviable track record, having shown consistent achievement since its formation, allowing the HPR group to expand around the globe. The group has grown into an internationally renowned market leader in manpower solutions and has expanded to include HPR ME (Middle East) with an office in Abu Dhabi (UAE), has operational facilities in the Philippines and India.

Additionally, the Group is proud to have borne a specialist micro ROV service Company, HPR ROV.

HPR UK believe that the most successful business relationships are based on true long-term partnerships. We can fully illustrate this by the repeat business of our clients and also by our core personnel of approximately 250 Consultants working for HPR UK on a regular basis.

“Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.” – Warren Buffett.

Whilst the industries HPR UK operate within tend to be quick turn-around environments, it’s good to plan…when we work closely with Clients to understand non-immediate project plans, we can, in turn pencil in individual skilled personnel to match these requirements ahead of time.

We do however understand the pressures on operations and can work just as well with immediate needs.

we understand you

HPR UK understands the importance of having dedicated staff with a mix of offshore and recruitment/resource management industry background. HPR UK’s rapid growth can be directly attributed to the professionalism and commitment of its staff who have maintained the friendly, personal approach the company was founded on.
