UKCS Workforce Dynamics: The Skills Landscape report launch

Oil and gas skills requirements are changing at a rapid pace. Digitisation, internationalisation and the transition to a lower carbon future require re-skilling opportunities to be created and new roles to be defined.

Following on from the UKCS Workforce Dynamics Review which was published in May last year, OPITO commissioned RGU’s Oil & Gas Institute to produce a follow-on report to further define the sector’s requirements up to 2025. Action to develop skills is required now to support industry’s Vision 2035 and the wider energy diversification ambition.

The Skills Landscape report provides context for employers, governments, agencies, universities, vocational institutes and training providers to develop the necessary skills and capabilities to support the sector going forward, and will outline a number of actions needed to prepare the workforce for the future.

OPITO is delighted to be working with Oil & Gas UK to launch this vital report at at Business Breakfast which will take place on:

Thursday, May 2nd 2019
07:00 - 09:30 BST

Mercure Aberdeen Ardoe House Hotel, South Deeside Road, Blairs, Aberdeen, AB12 5YP

The event will be chaired by Deirdre Michie, Chief Executive, Oil & Gas UK and will host a panel of industry professionals who will discuss not only the findings from the report, but more importantly, the actions and next steps that will ensure we have the right skills for the future.

Event speakers are;

  • Mark Cullens, Director of Strategic Development, OPITO
  • Paul de Leeuw, Director – Oil and Gas Institute, Robert Gordon University

Following a short networking break, the speakers will form a panel session and will be joined by;

  • Ariel Flores, North Sea Regional President, BP
  • Lesley Birse, President People and Organisation for Europe, Africa, ME, Asia and Australia, Wood
  • Sophie Ewen, OGTAP Apprentice sponsored by Chevron, representing the next generation.
