Subsea 7 Eyes Fresh Ideas with Engineering Conversion Programme
Subsea 7 is inviting experienced engineers from all sectors the opportunity to forge a new career in the subsea industry.
Since 2005, the company’s Engineering Conversion Programme has enabled experienced engineers from aerospace to automotive, and onshore construction to ex-military, to transfer their skills into oil and gas.
Qualified engineers are invited to apply for the current intake through the Subsea 7 website by the 20 September 2019.
The intensive programme, which begins later in 2019, delivers a mix of on the job and classroom based training as well as external activities such as visits to Subsea 7 sites, vessels and subcontractors plus offshore survival training.
More than 70 engineers have gone through the programme to date and with a high retention rate the programme has proved to be a very effective method of bringing new and diverse engineering expertise to Subsea 7.
Tom McNamee, Business Unit Engineering Resource & Development Manager with Subsea 7, said: “We’re looking for candidates who can bring fresh insight, ingenuity and innovation to our operations. What this programme offers is a very supportive, professional and effective way to quickly fill any knowledge gaps, to ensure each candidate’s transition is as straightforward as possible. The support and encouragement the programme provides, continues throughout their career.”
