Any 'experienced' supervisor that will work for those rates will likely be crap! The employing company deserves everything that the person brings to the job!

Hi James

I dont know were they get these rates from I think we were both on these type of rates over 25 years ago .

I did put forward a few trainees that I knew were looking and they all got turned down due to lack of experience the company is looking for people with 10 - 15 years in the game , They wont get it with those silly rates !

Same every year !

Better off working in Tescos !

Cheers

Each year I think a few companies try it on early in the UK season hoping to catch a few desperate people that have run their funds down to the bone over the winter. Still don't know why they bother as, once again, anyone they get on those rates is likely to be well below par IMHO.

Plus if you work in Norway on a Oil + Gas Projects your subject to local tax so this £480 is not what your going to make a day , More like £325 .

Now they will tell you dont worry your get it back , Since this is going to be a one off job your be put on some thing like emergency tax .So be warned as Sonsub dont seem to have this in their ad .

So dont give up the day job just yet !

I think the only people making money at the moment are the rov training schools .

If you are interested please reply to us & advise when you are available & if there are any locations you wont work from the given list

· Our client asks for 300+ ROV offshore flying hours with workclass systems
· You MUST have OPITO and UKOOA
· You Must have worked on construction projects with workclass ROV. Ideally for 2-3 years minimum.


Immediately dropped into the bin....is it no wonder that the client is struggling to get staff, and the agencies have a 'large demand'.
So much so, they'll even pay for your Norwegian certs Exclamation


10% uplift is a disgrace for Africa and Norway
Most O & G companies offer 40% as a minimum

''But they are fixed rates'' I hear the agents cry - nonsense

You've got to either be mug or desperate to accept a proposal as absurd as this!

I am lost for words with these silly rates and they have the cheek to say "For the right candidate "

So, I wonder if anyone else has had any comedy scripts through?
