This doesn't look good at all, the year seems starting to a rather slow start for us freelancers. Where is the work?

Hi Piper,

I'm away in a week for four weeks with Fugro, I've been offered four other day rate contracts, from the N.sea to Singers.
Then there's the two Staff positions based in Aberdoom, Its as busy as its been for the last eight years I've been in the Game.

There are a lot of " stagnant" job postings on oilcareers, hopefully you'll pick something up soon, all the best for 2014 too.

We are just small beans but none of our subsea work kicks off again until mid February; it's been such a rubbish winter for cruddy weather !
Talk in anger and you'll make the best speech you'll ever regret.

Hi guys,

I thought I would chip in from an agency perspective. The activity on the freelance market this new year is slightly slower than we might have expected, but there is still work out there (a few positions have come live in Norway, UK (North Sea and Inside 12 Mile Zone), West Africa (Congo), China (Long term project and ad hoc jobs) and South America (Brazil for construction and Mexico for trenching / cabling / light construction and installation work).

You have to bare in mind that many internal ROV Staff members are getting their days in post-Christmas and regular contractors are being retained once again by clients. This will slow everything down for a while but, despite this, we are expecting the market to pick up again soon as more spot jobs appear and the regular rotation slots are opened up to the wider freelance market.

As Senior pointed out, there are a lot of stagnant jobs about at the moment that are fishing for CVs, and a few positions have been scuppered because of the weather (we are based in Cornwall, and have felt the full force of the recent Lows that have been coming across the Atlantic! Pretty hairy stuff!). Overall, though, 2014 is expected to be a big year - just be on the ball when the vacancies come up, ensure that your CV represents your capabilitles as well as it can, and keep apace with how the marketing is developing as much as you can.

If anybody needs any further advice, feel free to drop me a line. Cheers!
Kind regards,

William Best (ROV Account Manager)

Ladies!

This is an ROV employment discussion. The title is a clue!
So it's not a General topic and should not have been posted here in the General board.

Can we please try to post in the relevant boards created for such topics.

This thread will be moved to ROV Employment Discussion board shortly.
