EnerMech apprentices to the ‘four’

Opportunities to work internationally

EnerMech are looking to recruit up to four apprentice engineers into their UK business who will have opportunities to work internationally as they progress up the career ladder.

The Aberdeen-headquartered mechanical and electrical services specialist has a strong track record of training young people who have gone on to make a significant impact on the business and in future years take up senior positions.

To date, at least 20 former apprentices have graduated from EnerMech’s UK apprentice scheme, with some working offshore in the North Sea, others in key posts in Angola, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Egypt, while a number have developed careers in project management.

The prospective apprentices will have spent at least one year in a college based environment and demonstrated a commitment to a career in engineering by obtaining a Performing Engineering Operations qualification or a relevant National Certificate.

The successful applicants will be sponsored by EnerMech to complete their Modern Apprentice training up to NVQ Level 3 at college, combined with on-the-job training over the next three years.

EnerMech’s Director of Human Resources, Shirley Smith, said various routes were open to EnerMech apprentices, who could opt to work in traditional offshore roles as technicians or as onshore project engineers, which could lead to taking a Graduate Apprentice course at The Robert Gordon University.

Shirley Smith said:-
“Our apprentices are limited only by their ambition and we actively encourage every one of them to reach their full potential. We believe apprentices are the lifeblood of an organisation like EnerMech, and by the end of their apprenticeships they will all have gained a comprehensive understanding of our business objectives and can go on to play an important role in the growth of the company.”

One of EnerMech’s first apprentices started off working in the “Flying Squad” as part of an agile team deployed on major offshore projects, later took on an onshore project engineer role and is now one of the company’s lead contract support engineers.

Another former apprentice is currently working as a supervisor in Ghana, while EnerMech’s first female apprentice is no longer workshop based and has been promoted to a project co-ordinator position.

Shirley added: “Supporting an apprenticeship is a significant financial investment but we believe it is important to encourage young people to have careers in the energy sector. We are looking for candidates who are committed and will stay the course and grow their careers as the business continues to grow globally. In return we will provide the highest levels of training and support their personal and career development so they can get the best out of a rewarding career.”

EnerMech employs 3,500 staff across 40 locations in the UK, Norway, the Middle East, Caspian, Asia, Africa, Australia and Americas, working on large scale projects across the oil and gas, LNG, renewables, defence, power, infrastructure and petrochemicals sectors.
