Aldelia was founded in 2005 by Cedric Filet, who has an extensive career in international recruitment and team management. It was initially a London based HR services agency focusing on recruitment firstly for the IT sector and secondly for the Oil & Gas sector at the European level.
Rapidly, Aldelia concentrated on supporting European multinationals expanding in Africa, Middle East and South America, in order to manage cross cultural problematics and to ensure that they were operating in compliance with specific local regulations.
Today, Aldelia is assisting its clients: blue chip multinationals and highly ambitious SMEs, in more than 30 countries worldwide, operating in various sectors: Oil & Gas, Construction, Tech & IT, Banking, Telecom, FMCG, etc.
The origin of Aldelia gives a good indication of what the company was meant to be. Cedric Filet, whilst recovering from a rugby injury, established the company from his bedroom. The dream was to set up a recruitment consultancy which would compete with the top 5 Oil & Gas Recruitment Specialists in a matter of 5 years. To achieve that, Cedric focused on a gap he identified in the Oil & Gas industry: local content. Local content had long been considered a pain for international Oil & Gas firms. These firms understood the necessity of developing local content programs but struggled to implement them.When it came to choose a name, Cedric decided to find a name which would represent the strategic orientation of the company. The Aldelia name finds it origin from the Portuguese “Aldeia” which defines in Brazil people coming from small indigenous communities – tribes.The strategy paid off quickly with numerous contracts signed with major Oil & Gas companies.
