According to Subsea 7, 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.

The latest engineering conversion program begins later in 2019. In a statement on Tuesday, Subsea 7 promised the program would deliver 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.

The company is seeking candidates from a wide range of industries and backgrounds with demonstrable engineering experience who want to make the change to a career in subsea engineering. Example industries include but are not limited to: Civil Engineering, Armed Forces and Oil and Gas.

Qualified engineers are invited to apply for the current intake through the Subsea 7 website by the 20 September 2019.

“More than 70 engineers have gone through the program to date and with a high retention rate the program has proved to be a very effective method of bringing new and diverse engineering expertise to Subsea 7,” Subsea 7 says.

Tom McNamee, Business Unit Engineering Resource & Development Manager with Subsea 7, said the programme fully equips entrants to hit the ground running.

He said: “We’re looking for candidates who can bring fresh insight, ingenuity, and innovation to our operations. What this program 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 program provides continues throughout their career.”
