Careers event to shed light on working in the energy sector
By Grimsby Telegraph | Posted: 25 Sep 2017
A special event is taking place at Stallingborough's beacon training facility this week, with some of the world's biggest players in the energy industry on hand to talk careers.
AIS Training is bringing together leading companies from the oil and gas, renewables and petrochemical sectors at Catch.
Representatives from Wood Group, Bilfinger Salamis and OPITO will be there, as well as recruitment firms.
The drop-in style event takes place between 10am and 3pm on Thursday, September 28. Tours of the Catch site will also be available as part of a dedicated open week.
Charlie Guthrie, marketing manager at AIS Group, said: “Huge offshore wind projects like Dogger Bank, Hornsea One and Two and the Humber Gateway are helping to position this area as a global powerhouse for the offshore wind industry. "Combine that with the dozens of oil and gas installations which exist in the North Sea and their associated downstream facilities across Humberside and you can see there are potentially hundreds of job opportunities available.
“We want to ensure people in the region are fully informed and aware of the career choices on offer. At this flagship careers event, we’ll have specialists on-hand able to provide all the information you need on which roles are available, how your skills might relate and any additional training you might need. The event is free and open to all so we’d encourage anyone interested in an energy career to come along and find out more.”
