Opportunities like these are rare. This is the ideal career move for individuals with relevant industry experience who want to make the most of their talent and take it to new heights. Working as part of a regional team you'll be responsible for the production and development of quality research and analysis.
The vast natural resources of the Former Soviet Union mean companies cannot afford to ignore the region. Years of under-investment in both the upstream and midstream are now creating numerous opportunities for foreign investors of all sizes. Although many companies have been deterred by the political and fiscal instability that followed the collapse of the Soviet Union, the situation is now improving. However, state control of infrastructure and distribution networks is still tight, and upstream activities are monitored carefully to ensure maximum value is delivered. Nevertheless, investors who understand the local culture and operate to international standards are proving highly successful.
