TORONTO, March 18 /PRNewswire/ - Drake International is pleased to announce the launch of Drake Global Tech, a major initiative serving the human capital needs of technology companies around the world.

About Drake Global Tech

Even through the recent recession, many of Drake's clients were finding it difficult to fill positions requiring high levels of technical expertise. Drawing on the knowledge and resources of our network of 91 offices in 9 countries, Drake was able to help these companies hire talented people to fill their needs.

In time, the talent shortage will disappear, but aggressive, growth-oriented companies in Canada and abroad can't afford to wait. To solve this problem, Drake formed Drake Global Tech. Its mandate is to find the most qualified candidates from around the globe to fill positions in skilled technical middle to senior management in: Engineering procurement and construction management (EPC/EPCM); Mining; Oil & Gas; Cleantech/Renewables; and Telecom.

It's an exciting approach both for companies and for recruits. Canadians will be able to explore tech opportunities on an international level, while talent in other countries will get an opportunity to move to Canada to progress in their careers. All in all, Canadian companies will no longer suffer losses in productivity and performance due to labour shortages. And while they often don't see the initial value they can get through global recruiting, an open attitude and Drake Global Tech can help make them competitive successes.

Drake Global Tech specializes in recruiting experienced mid-to senior-level professionals for all phases of a project or program, from exploration through commissioning to full 'operationalization', on a full-time or contract basis.
