I am very good at overseeing a situation to the extent that I am able to take in the bigger picture yet can simultaneously remain focused on the detail. It is a skill I have honed over the past 20 years within the oil and gas sector and where I have gained the maturity to provide support to all contractors and staff.

Long term plans and requirements are so important in this sort of environment so it is vital these are taken into consideration when dealing with budgets, contracts or clients. Being such a volatile industry also means that having a steady and calm individual who is professional and focused really helps. That is where I come in with my keen understanding of business priorities and my commitment to managing operations and projects.

I am looking for a position with preference for the Middle East or Africa, though I am open to other locations throughout the world. Additionally I am able to pick up new skills and adapt to ever-changing situations easily, turning my hand to pretty much anything that is thrown at me. I am constantly striving for excellence and would love to see what I could do for you and your organisation. Please contact me at alexander.troitskiy at and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
