Head of Drilling / BD Manager - West Africa or WFH

Head of Drilling / BD Manager 

Competitive package 

West Africa / WFH


Our client, a privately owned, integrated Mining, Metals and Services company, currently seeks a Head of Drilling to drive growth in one of their emerging businesses.


Historically, their drilling business has serviced their own assets and neighbouring properties but the parent company would now like to deploy capital into this area and see the BU become more client facing and take market share from the mining services / drilling space.


With capital and a shipping company on hand to deploy equipment anywhere in the world, the new Head of Drilling will have scope to develop this new business how they see fit. Whether remaining in West Africa or chasing deals in other parts of the world, the focus will be on growth, winning clients, finalising contracts and overseeing successful operations.

The position has legs to become CEO of this subsidiary and comes with heavy incentives based on success so an entrepreneurial candidate will fit in very well.


The successful candidate will likely have come up the drilling operations route then transitioned into Business Development or General Management with responsibility for Business Development, Procurement and winning deals. We seek a track record of growing a drilling company though a firm bank of relevant contacts and honouring those contracts in a successful manner.


Once global normality resumes, the incumbent will likely spend considerable periods of time overseeing operations but in the interim and ongoing for the BD portion of the role, the position can be executed from home or one of the client’s many global offices.
