Contractors might be interested to hear that the Aberdeen-based subsea and marine recruitment specialist, etpm, will be adding two new lines in order to support the growing demand for staff in the global marketplace.
The new Engineering Division will focus on subsea project engineering, as well as topsides and onshore engineering roles. This new division will work together with the already established Subsea and Marine Divisions.
Etpm have said that the reason behind this expansion is due to the demand for experienced onshore personnel to support work on some of the North Sea’s most important Brownfield projects, as well as the need for personnel to work on local and international Greenfield growth.
The subsea and marine recruitment specialist will also be adding two new women to its team, in order to tackle the growing issue of the lack of women working in the oil and gas sector.
Managing Director at etpm, Jeff Mountain, explained that adding Sarah Hutcheon and Kerry Hadden to its team will mean that more than 50% of its recruitment staff are females.
He explained, “Recent figures show that while women make up 41% of the UK’s total workforce, that figure drops to just 4% in the oil and gas industry so we are very pleased that we are helping to reverse that trend.
“Sarah joins us in a senior position on our management team to build up the new division and Kerry’s role in developing our new ROV line will be an important part of our company expansion.”
