According to the ECITB Workforce Census published this year, the UK oil and gas sector headcount is on course to exceed pre-pandemic levels by almost 10% in 2022.

While this is great news for the sector, with the summer recruitment crunch in full swing skills shortages have been the hot topic for 2022.

The report suggests that the sector is attracting too few young people with only 12% of the workforce under the age of 30. The bulk of people working in oil and gas are aged between 30 and 49 (54%) and more than a third of employees are over 50.

To help tempt younger workers into the industry and keep training costs low, AIS Survivex is offering a host of vocational new-starter packages.

Head of marketing at AIS Survivex, Linzi Ryan explains:

“We know that the oil and gas sector is facing enormous challenges around an ageing workforce and has skills shortages in certain areas. We want to help address these challenges.

“For anyone looking to work in oil and gas, the cost of training and uncertainty around which courses to undertake can often be a barrier. That’s why we’ve designed a special range of training packages to help those new to the industry.

“Heavily discounted at a cost of up to 30% lower than if buying the courses separately, these packages have been specially created with particular career routes in mind and include all the mandatory and complimentary certification needed.

“For those entering the industry for the first time this removes any confusion around which courses to choose and keeps costs as low as possible. We also offer interest free finance to help with the affordability of training. By removing some of these barriers to entering the oil and gas industry, we hope to help attract new, fresh talent in.”
