SPONSORED: Find a new energy sector career in 2020 with Survivex and AIS Training

The UK’s largest energy sector training provider is launching a campaign to help you achieve your New Year’s resolution to make a career change.

Survivex and AIS Training, part of the 3T Energy Group, are running a series of inspiring career change stories, advice pages and events throughout January to showcase the possibilities of a new career within the global energy sector in 2020.

Up to 75,000 delegates train with Survivex and AIS Training every year in skills such as offshore survival, first aid, rope access, scaffolding, banksman slinger and global wind organisation (GWO) safety standards.

Amongst these delegates are numerous stories of people who have successfully changed careers or upskilled and are now enjoying a much more fulfilling working life.

One example is vehicle mechanic, Kyle Emmerson, who swapped car bonnets for wind turbines after transferring his skills to the fast-growing global wind industry.

Within just three months of completing his GWO training with AIS Training, Kyle scooped his first wind job working in Sweden as a wind technician – and he’s never looked back.

He said: “I’ve absolutely no regrets about moving to the wind sector – I love it! The shift rotations and nature of the work means you get plenty of time off to spend with family and the job opportunities are plentiful.

“The training was extremely professional and the instructors very approachable and I got loads of tips and advice to help me get that first foot in the door.

“For anyone thinking about retraining for the wind sector I’d say give it a go. Although you need a bit of bottle to make that first move, it has been well worth it for me and has only taken one work trip to pay for all my training.”

Other success stories highlighted by the campaign include experienced scaffolder turned business owner Jordan Lovell, former adventure-sports instructor Caleb Comstock who is now working as a wind technician in the States and Zander Simpson, who landed a dream job with global oil and gas service giant Technip FMC.

Career Open Days

To help anyone looking for a new career or job in 2020, both AIS Training and Survivex will be holding Careers Open Days at the end of January. You’ll find out what it’s like to work in the energy sector and meet some of the industry’s biggest players.

The drop-in style events will take place between 11am and 7pm on Tuesday 28th September at Survivex in Aberdeen, and Thursday 30th January at AIS Training in Newcastle.

As well as providing advice on the wide range of career opportunities available and CV and interview tips, the events will include representatives from leading employers and recruitment firms to talk about upcoming projects for the year ahead.

Charlie Guthrie, Marketing Manager at 3T Energy Group, said: “People use the start of the year as a time to reflect on things they want to change for the better and we want to help those looking for a new career or different job.

“Both AIS Training and Survivex have an excellent track-record in delivering high quality training provision and ensuring people have the right skills to make their CV stand out to employers.

“We are using some of our numerous case studies to inspire people and show how you can change your life for the better with our help.

“Our comprehensive careers events will also help to showcase the potential within the global energy sector, and we urge anyone interested to sign up quickly as we anticipate high demand.”
