We welcome the findings of Oil & Gas UK’s 2018 Economic Report. It is encouraging to see that 56% of companies expect their employee numbers to increase throughout 2018 due to the rise in development projects.
Recruitment however remains a challenge, and companies are reporting difficulties in hiring people with the desired skill sets and competencies.
As the skills organisation for the energy sector, OPITO will continue to work with stakeholders to ensure that the skills requirements of the industry's workforce are supported both now and in the future.
The report can be found on the Oil & Gas UK website.
