Life Onshore and Offshore
Contrary to popular belief, the majority of careers in the oil and gas industry are based onshore rather than offshore...
According to an industry report published late 2014, only 6% of industry roles are based offshore!
There are a huge breadth of rewarding roles within the oil and gas industry and although many of them are based in ‘oil’ hubs such as Aberdeen and the East of England, exciting careers are found in other places across the UK. These include commercial and trading units in exciting cities like London, not to mention the numerous positions available across the globe.
Although engineering and technical roles make up a key part of the industry, there are a whole range of careers available for those who have skills in other areas. Oil companies employ lawyers, accountants, geologists, electricians, medics, crane operators, mechanics, divers and designers – to name a few – so there will almost certainly be jobs relevant to your interests.
