International recruitment company Atlas Professionals (Atlas) and leading drilling, engineering and technology company KCA Deutag have joined forces to invite UK based jobseekers of all ages and experience levels to participate in a bespoke recruitment initiative. The Greenhand programme is designed to bring fresh talent to the energy industry.
No previous energy industry experience is required to apply for the programme, which identifies suitable candidates and supports them through the training courses and qualifications they need to kick-start a new career within the industry.
The programme will begin with a dedicated Greenhand Training Day at the AIS Survivex facility in Aberdeen on 2 September 2022, where candidates will learn about offshore life with KCA Deutag, hear from current employees and participate in interviews and aptitude testing with Atlas Professionals. Successful candidates will receive access to discounted training courses, which will prepare them to take up entry-level offshore roles.
The energy industry is full of opportunity for knowledgeable and skilled professionals, offering exciting work environments and dynamic career possibilities. Fresh talent discovered through Greenhand programmes will help secure a sustainable and safe future for the industry, with a highly skilled, rigorously trained workforce.
Atlas and KCA Deutag welcome applications from all candidates and are committed to ensuring that everyone has equal access to opportunities in the energy industry.
Chris Boardman, Atlas Professionals General Manager North Sea Drilling, says: “Ever since its conception, we achieved exceptional results from our Greenhand Programme and we are looking forward to introducing new professionals once again into the industry. We are relishing the opportunity to join KCA Deutag in working towards a more sustainable future for the energy industry and offer our four decades of expertise to secure key personnel for KCA Deutag’s business needs.”
Peter Skinner, KCA Deutag UK Country Manager, says: “In our industry, a skilled and well-trained workforce is vital. Atlas is a reliable partner in ensuring we have access to top candidates, and we look forward to welcoming the next generation of energy industry employees.”
