With an eye on the future, subsea services provider Bibby Offshore understands the importance of valuing and investing in the workforce of tomorrow.
This is highlighted by its successes at the 2014 Oil and Gas UK Awards, where it won in the Investment in People category and at the 2014 Northern Star Business Awards, winning in the Commitment to People Development category.
Competency and training manager, Claire Duncan, said: “One of Bibby Offshore’s core values is to realise the talent of its people. The company is aware that employee development contributes significantly towards achieving the company’s key business objectives, and we are consistently striving to develop ways to invest in the next generation, and nurture their skills and experience.”
In August last year, Bibby Offshore recruited its first intake of ROV apprentices, through its new ROV Training Scheme. From the 276 interviewed, the six candidates with the most ambition, talent and drive were chosen, and are now seven months into a rigorous, four-year training scheme.
