Working in another industry and looking to get offshore, what transferable skills have you got?
It’s always worth thinking about the job role you have now and how you could link that experience to your dream offshore career. Maybe you’ve managed people which would be a plus for a supervisors role, maybe in a warehouse or yard you’ve used machinery or moved heavy loads around, which combined with a Rigging Certificate could qualify you to work offshore.
You can also transfer with a whole range of other skills, check out some more examples below:
- Builder / Roofer > Offshore Scaffolder
- Paramedic / Nurse > Offshore Medic
- Builder / Construction > Fabric Maintenance or Painter Blaster
- Electrician > CompEx Electrical
