Dedicated database of candidates in the heavy industry in Africa
What are petrochemical plants?
Petrochemical plants convert natural resources such as crude oil, natural gas, ores and minerals into products for a wide range of applications. They produce many important building blocks for industry processes, including ethylene, propylene, butadiene, and aromatics.
Much of this production goes toward polyethylene, a widely used plastic containing polymer chains of ethylene units in various chain lengths. Ethylene is also an important natural plant hormone, and is used in agriculture to force the ripening of fruits. Ethylene's hydrate is ethanol.
Butadiene is used primarily as a chemical intermediate and as a monomer in the manufacture of polymers such as synthetic rubbers or elastomers, including styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR), polybutadiene rubber (PBR), polychloroprene (Neoprene) and nitrile rubber (NR)
Many aromatic compounds are used as solvents to remove or thin out oil- or grease-based compounds. Toluene, for example, is an ingredient in paint thinners. Benzene is a gasoline additive that reduces knocking in engines. Benzene and toluene are widely used to make other chemicals including dyes and plastic products.

There are many job opportunities in the heavy engineering sector all around Africa. These positions can vary from fly in fly out, to “you have to stay for x months”, to getting danger pay, to staying in camps. These jobs can be so diverse, and depending on the person, you could really find the ideal position that suits your preferences. From high risk, to the general office jobs, from start-up heavy engineering exploration companies roughing it up, to well established companies, and from no red tape to plenty of it. I am convinced (should you have the right experience that the client is looking for) that you could find the ideal job in the heavy engineering industry on your living expectations. At the bottom of this article, I’ve just listed a few positions that come to mind when thinking of positions open in the heavy engineering industry in Africa. Working in Africa in spite of certain political conditions is exciting, and favoured by many.
AdoGreen is a specialist recruitment agency focusing on finding local talent in various African countries in the heavy engineering industry. Why AdoGreen is so effective in working within Africa, being able to target local candidates, is owing to extensive experience in pioneering within unfamiliar locations and successfully identifying the best recruitment practises for these type of environments for expanding and established companies.
AdoGreen can assist with requirements within restrictive circumstances like the challenge of working in remote locations, lack of connectivity and media reach, as well as regions unfamiliar to the company.
In reporting to the Region Managing Director, the successful candidate will be responsible for implementing strategies and managing processes to ensure that these are in line with regional business plans and policies. In working closely with the Regional Business Team, Branch Managers and key customers and contractors one will be responsible for achieving or exceeding the budgeted contribution while ensuring cost and quality efficiency.
