Our Client is one of the largest turnkey Engineering & Construction (E&C) contractors in the Oil and Gas sector with a proven track-record over many years, and increasingly growing towards the Renewable Energy Sector as well. With a strong bias towards remote areas and challenging deep-water locations, it is a leader in the supply of engineering, procurement, project management and construction services, with distinctive capabilities in the design and execution of large-scale offshore and onshore projects.


Our Client operates a prestigious fleet of vessels for offshore construction in shallow and deep water. These include Heavy lift vessels &  large transportation barges for installing/removing topsides, jackets and large  windfarm  components, Pipelay vessels for installation of rigid / flexible pipelines, umbilical’s & cables, construction vessels for subsea trenching & subsea structures installation.


Our Client, based in South London, is part of the Robotics & Subsea Facilities and Industrialized Solutions (ROIS) business unit which has a strong track-record in design, installation and removal of offshore oil & gas infrastructure, and increasingly specialising in offshore wind farm infrastructure (fixed and floating) throughout the world, but predominantly in the harsh environment of the North Atlantic, North Sea and Baltic regions.


Our Client is actively expanding our capability in engineering and construction in the renewables sector (offshore wind farms).


They are currently looking for high calibre graduates, either Fresh Graduates or ideally with some work experience, with a degree qualification in engineering (e.g. mechanical, civil/structural, naval architecture, material engineering or similar).


The Graduate role requires strong theoretical background in ferrous alloys and corrosion resistance alloys (CRA), their chemical and mechanical properties as well as their manufacturing process in relation to alloys used in offshore wind farm structure and associate components.


Training and development will be provided to build a wide range of technical and professional skills within the department, which are necessary to work in our multi-disciplinary project-based organisation covering a range of work locations. Whilst the role will predominantly be London based, we require flexibility to undertake work in other offices and offshore sites at appropriate times.


Our Client encourages and supports all engineers in their professional development to achieve Chartered Engineer status.



These are Permanent Staff positions and joining a major organisation would have many large company benefits. As well the further training would be second to none in the industry Salaries offered would be dependent on qualifications obtained. For a fresh graduate the starting salary is good with higher salaries for those with a Masters and with also further enhanced for those with a PhD . Graduates who have had some experience either in the oil and gas industry or other industries there would be a level of increase in the basic starting salary. 


Please also note that candidates must be available to interview from Mid-July – they are hoping to start the scheme in early – mid September.


The Client’s Office are very close to the Station.


Our Client is also looking for Graduate Structural Engineers, Graduate Geotechnical Engineers, Graduate Naval Analysis Engineers and Trainee Installation Engineers.


We are instructed to only submit to our Client candidates whose qualifications and experience match client’s specification and must be to work within the UK.
