I agree...So my basic math concludes that:

Avg Supv d.r = £650 (ish)
Plus O/T = £400

Equates to a reasonable night shift rate Exclamation

I am surprised nobody have asked why there is a £ 400 uplift for night shift.. Are you working on your own? during night shift?

Sounds to good to be true Dan , I would love to hear from the person who took the job and find out the what the total day rate was .

I know a bit of the story , You live on a FPSO and the boat being used only runs in day time only so I think if you were doing nights you do 16 hours but day shift was only working 8 hours .

All very strange stuff !

Sounds OK if the dayrate is half decent


ISS Supervisor for Espoir Platform inspection will be paid Full Supervisor rate plus £400 per day for the night shift as you will be covering 16 hours! So you know what we pay Supervisors as it has already been posted on this website. Please note that this job is not normally offered out to agencies so I can assure you it is a good deal. Dickie

The day rate for Supervisor with platform inspection experience depends on who they work through. Agency rate for Supervisor varies but I would say that £450 per day should be achievable, so that would give you £850 per day!

Hi Dan, the £400 per day night shift bonus is because they can only travel to the FPSO during day light hours so the night shift end up being 16 hours away from the FPSO and the day shift cover the other 8 hours! They will swap shifts half was through to share the extra work / cash!

Dickie, is this because they don't want to be in the loop if the 'employee' was to have a work related accident during this extended period?

Has ISS undertaken a Fatigue risk index for this?
Just curious...

God! That jacks me right off! Why do people do that?

I struggled twice in my career to get a break.. first time was diving and 10 years after ROV. Not once did it cross my mind to pay for flights or offer to work for free!! How low do people want to stoop??

Well , You know who to blame for this crap James ................... "ROV Schools" and Agencies. Confused
Put ya brain in gear before ye open thy gob !

Yes I must agree most of these silly rates is down to the agencys all bidding for the same work .

I still think all agencys using this site should put down there rates on offer it would save so much time . Some do but the main agencys using this site dont .The topic is locked after the ad is placed so no body should be able to add any thing .

Also if the work is in Norway is the day rate subject to local tax !

But things are just getting a bit silly at the moment what with rates from some very low and guys offering there services for free I bet Fugro Middle East would love that .

I have to say that a few years back there were only a handful of agencies. Now, there are loads of them popping up all over the place and, as mentioned above, all looking for a slice of the same piece of pie!
The ROV schools are pumping out plenty of cheap ROV labour. The Agencies are offering very low rates. Companies are holding back on the rates as much as they can to maximise profit. The ROV crews are now on the receiving end of the net effect of that.

Basically, the money now is no better than it was 10 years ago! To cap that, there are people offering to pay their own air fares!

On the matter of locked topics.
It's us admins that lock the topics for a very sound and well proven reason.

A few years back they were not locked and sometimes all sorts of crap was posted about the job on offer, the person that added it, or the agency concerned.
Gradually agencies started not to post at all, to the detriment of all those that use this site. So, now agencies continue to post job vacancies quite regularly and the job posts are locked as soon as an admin sees the post(s).

Of course there is nothing to stop anyone from discussing a job posting by way of starting another thread in the employment discussion board and referring to it there.
