Hi guys I was just wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of any companies who take on young engineers/technicians. My dream job is to work on oil rigs offshore, I only have experience in domestic electrical installations from working with my dad and my HNC in electrical engineering which i achieved an A.

I am 19 with no convictions and pretty fit.

if anyone has any advice it would be much appreciated.

Thanks Aidan

How you doing mate?!

Dunno how relevant this would be to you but have you thought about applying for a cadetship with the merchant navy?

With you already having a HNC you would likely get a start and put throught a fast track route, which is 7 months at college then 6 months at sea completing a task book. after a few exams and sea time you would be qualified as a ships electrician which would then give you an upper hand on all the other domestic electricians as this is a desired back ground & extremely similiar.

Only thing is, is that the money is ***** poor for the 1st year atleast until you get ur ticket.

Also if youre looking to get off shore you will stand a better chance if you put yourself through a few courses such as:

BOSIET, MIST, COMPEX (for electricians)

Basically just safety courses, but legally required!

Hope this helps mate & best of luck chasing the big bucks
