BP Struggle to Fill Roles

Oil and gas company BP are struggling to find skilled engineers to expand their North Sea operations, reports the BBC.

The growth of the North Sea oil and gas fields, expected to create hundreds of jobs, seems to have stagnated as Trevor Garlick, head of BP’s North Sea operations, said the company cannot find the correct people to fill the roles. He adds that “getting hold of the right people is a real issue for us.”

BP views the North Sea as a ‘training ground’ where the most capable employees are developed before being moved overseas. Mr Garlick says that whilst “we are hiring a lot of people, but we are also an exporter of a couple of hundred people to other regions.” It is believed that the oil and gas industry is expected to create over 15,000 jobs in the next five years, though companies complain of the same problem as BP – being able to find qualified staff to fill positions.
