Zander scoops dream job with OPITO offshore survival training

“Finally I’m in the role I always wanted with a world-leading company.”

After leaving school, Zander knew he wanted to work in the oil and gas industry as a mechanical engineer and secured an apprenticeship. Zander spent the next six years gaining valuable experience in both on and offshore positions.

But his ultimate goal was always to work with one of the world’s leading oil and gas companies and, after successfully completing his mandatory OPITO offshore survival training with Survivex, managed to land a position with global oil and gas service giant, Technip FMC.

Now Zander is using his existing skills onshore but is ready to mobilise offshore at a moment’s notice thanks to his full OPITO certification achieved with Survivex.

He said: “After years of hard work I’ve finally landed my perfect role with Technip FMC. Working for a global company means I have the potential opportunity to work all over the world and a fantastic, supportive environment to develop my skills. The training at Survivex was excellent. Fantastic facilities and extremely knowledgeable and professional instructors. For anyone looking to develop their career- I thoroughly recommend them.

Thinking of a new career in 2021? Survivex and AIS Training are helping you with that career change on your New Year’s resolution list with a series of inspiring career change stories, advice pages and virtual events throughout January.

Free webinar events will take place between 25-29 January and will include invited leaders from the energy sector discussing upcoming projects for the year ahead, as well as giving tips on how to land that dream job and an insight into working in the energy industry.
