TAAP (174535) EEC EEC Renewables UK


As a leading engagement platform for the Energy sector, OGV Energy will be hosting a job fair dedicated to the Energy Sector, that will showcase the very best opportunities available to the workforce in the UK.

OGV Energy are delighted to be hosting our first Jobs fair for the Energy Sector at the Sandman Signature Aberdeen Hotel Aberdeen on Tuesday 17th of March 2020.

The Energy sector is evolving and the skills landscape is changing as new technologies are being harnessed to help the sector lower cost, improve safety and security, streamline efficiency and become more environmentally sustainable.

The Oil and Gas sector is working hard to deliver a new mandate as it seeks to deliver the key tenets of "Roadmap 2035", which includes a more flexible, multi-skilled and technology-enabled workforce. It is also looking at new markets such as Hydrogen and other alternative energy sources to diversify its portfolio.

The Renewables sector is benefitting from a renewed onus on a sustainable future and it is seeing new entrants and investment and for the first time we are now seeing Offshore Wind projects starting to compete in size and scale with the Oil and Gas projects.

As a leading media engagement platform for the Energy sector, OGV Energy will be hosting a recruitment fair dedicated to the Energy Sector, that will showcase a wide variety of opportunities available to the workforce in the UK.
