I just wonder how many people have left the industry during the crisis? Do you know someone who did?

I did, got laid off, no work blah blah blah. After all the years with the knuckle heads, happy though the experience remains. Got out of ROVs and straight into Instrumentation on FPSOs-Angola. I had an Electronics qualification when I started ROVs anyhow. Unlike most of pple I worked with had nothing just happened to know someone who worked in Aberdeen office and they got the job, you know the type, backstabbing, d*@k sucking shite.

I spent a few months scratching my head as to whether I was unemployed, retired, or on vacation. Retirement wins. I always figured I could dip back for a month here and there for the occasional quick 30k and make a temporary travel agency out of an employer but that's no longer an option. I leave it to the young and ambitious. No fun these days for one who thrives in markets that seek quality and continuity.

No complaints. Tip o' the hat to the biz that kept me in fun, frolic, travel, whiz bang work and provided enough to save for the mellow days.

I know 4 people who have properly retired , 2 who are sitting it out in pre retirement and 6 others who have started new careers onshore and they are happy doing 9-5 so unlikely to return when things turn round ,
and several agencies that have passed away unlamented .
