Where can I apply for offshore entry level jobs?

For individuals that are new to the offshore industry, the starting positions are; Roustabout or a role as part of Deck Crew Operations.  These positions are responsible for carrying out general housekeeping and material handling operations for the drilling rig or a platform.

Without experience and competence in a role, new entrants are placed with experienced crews who act as mentors.  During this stage, the individual is classed as a ‘Greenhand’. 

These jobs are usually advertised on recruitment company and oil and gas company websites.  For direct employment, our Career Links and/or Oil and Gas Company  links should give you a starting point.  Please note, not all the companies on these lists will be relevant and there are more oil and gas companies out there than appear here.

Please note you must have reached the legal age of 18 to work offshore.
