    Default Any Offshore Process Operators here?

    Just wondered if there are any operators on the forums? I've just got knocked back for a job at Phillips66 and now desperately want to get offshore. I've been an operator for 7 years at a large pharma manufacturer and need a change of scenery. Does anyone know of any decent contacts? I've had a look through a few other forums and fired my CV off but it seems that the best route is if you have a contact so if anyone can offer some advice I'd appreciate it.

    Thanks.

    does it have to be rigs? I'm a 3rd engineer on a ERRV in the North Sea. Good money for the work. You would have to retrain. What are your qualifications?

    Thanks to CallmeGoose

    Yes, Petrofac and Woodgroup too. My next step was to do my BOSIET and MIST courses although I've read lots that say you don't always need them but lots that say you do.

    I really really wouldn't pay for your BOSIET until you've got a job. I know a Oil & Gas recruiter and she takes about 12 calls a day from people wanting to "get offshore" anf her first words are don't fall for the scam of paying for a off shore survival training until you've got a job.
