On any given project around the world, Energold employs between 15-25 local labourers or 'drill helpers' to assist with the project. Duties include: transporting the rig, assembling and disassembling the rig, inserting and transferring rods amongst other tasks. Eventually, when a drill helper proves a significant improvement over a number of projects, they are provided an opportunity to become fully fledged drillers and drill supervisors, thereby Energold employs 'nationals' as well as expatriates as the drillers. Energold's social approach provides a long term relationship with the community and the host government.
After the Energold job rotation, the employee now has life long transferable skills they can take with them to benefit their village or at other opportunities.
