This is my first post on here. I've been working as an ROV pilot/tech grade 2 for the last 18 months after spending 9 years in the RAF as an aircraft engineer. I've got 100 offshore days and 30 hours. But I'm looking into a change of company as I've spent some trips on a barge which has no ROV on board, which I feel is hampering my progress to grade 1 and possibly further. If any one knows of any companies wanting to take trainees on please let me know or should I just persevere with my current employer? Thanks for any help/advice.
As you already have offshore experience and time, you should try applying to the usual larger ROV companies as a PT2, not as a Trainee.

You would be one of thousands applying as a Trainee.

I won't list the major players, it's easy enough to read through on here and Google to find out who they are Smile

Have you also got base days or is 100 offshore days in 18 months it?
Veni, Vidi, Velcro! (I came, I saw, I stuck around!)
Rayshields- yea I know who most of the big players are in the ROV work I've applied to a few of them got a few more to do and I'm on most of the major ROV recruitment/agencies books too. Thanks rayshields Smile

Sedco - I do have base days too when I've been alongside waiting for jobs/operations to come in for the vessel.
Just keep sending your CV out (as PT2) and emailing around.... keep yourself fresh in peoples minds. Don't feel guilty about contacting them too often! Something will eventually come up.

Good luck Thumb Up

Do what James suggested but also phone to follow up on your CV. That sometimes helps....especially when they are down a few guys and here is lad who wants to get a chance.

Good luck
Thanks jamesmc and Trimtank that helps. I know you said ring and follow up on my cv. I was asked my availability for an interview last Sunday by email from a big company I sent a reply email and followed up a few days later but I have not heard anything do you think it's worth ringing the company and person in question or does that seem too pushy?
