Hello Ray

Getting back to your original topic, I think you'll find the reason you can't get a replacement will be more to do with the rates being offered than nobody out there.

You could spend £1500 on a Nebosh safety cert and get offshore for better rates as a trainee safety rep.


That's what I thought but I've been told its not the money, either the Agency doesn't have anyone or the ones they are offering are not up to the standard (sorry, no, I don't know what rate was offered, I will be trying to find out tho)

Out of interest, what level of rates are people "happy" to accept (as opposed to being offered) in the N Sea just now for a PT or Supervisor?

I certainly would consider the NEBOSH route myself as I love my paperwork Smile But I'm happy enough with the money I get for the days I do just now.

Couyon, I am not discouraging anyone from trying to start out, only that this particular company is not looking for new people to train, its not a rumour, they are looking for good experienced Agency people. I'm not worrying about anyone taking my work, I'm wanting them to come and do it so I can go home Smile

I have no idea what the office are offering Agency guys, why would I? I'm on a boat off Ramsgate!

Ray,

Being on a boat off Ramsgate clearly has no bearing on why, as a long term Fugro employee, you might not know the rates.

Well lets see. I have nothing to do with the hiring of agency people, I have not worked with an Agency person for a year and a half so have been unable to ask them what they are getting (whether they would say or not).

I fail to see why being a long term employee of any company would put me in a position to know what the Company is currently offering Agency personnel??

Best to ask 1) the Ops girls, 2) the Project Manager or 3) the Agency person themselves. If I was working in base I might find out snippets, but hence I aint cos Im off Ramsgate Smile

I remember them paying £380 for Supervisors back in 2006 if that helps Very Happy

I got an email from Fugro in the middle east some Months back... Think they were still offering 380 quid a day Rolling Eyes Guessin it was just 2 dips a week drill support.. But still a shite dayrate..

Why are some companies able to offer upwards of 900USD a day meanwhile the UK based companies are squeeking at anything more than 430-440 quid = less than 650USD ? WTF would anyone work for 400quid (or less ) a day when that is basically a 300 buck paycut ?

I'm not so niggardly that I will refuse a job over a tenner.. But when you are talking close to 200 quid difference they can whistle...

If you don't wish to travel and the North Sea is all you know.. I guess it ain't a biggie.. But like I've said ROVing is an international job and I'm happy to travel for a better rate.. Also happy to work bloody hard, share a cabin and eat foreign tucker... But I need to be paid.. Sitting on some fancy boat with comfy bedding and a private shitter may be nicer but if it doesn't put beer tokens in my pocket I ain't interested...

Luckily for me I saved my hard earned and did sensible things with it.. So I don't have to accept low rates.. I'd rather work less often for more money.. If however you are potless or have a big overhead then I guess you gotta do what you gotta do...'' Not for me Ronnie''
