GE O&G to Host Careers Event this Weekend

GE Oil & Gas' Subsea Systems will host a careers showcase event at its Nailsea subsea controls business in Bristol, UK, this Saturday. The event comes as the company is looking to fill 100 new positions and is expanding its UK subsea production facilities to meet strong demand for offshore oil and gas equipment.

The showcase event is part of a major recruitment drive that GE is currently embarked on. In late January Rod Christie, CEO of GE Oil & Gas' Subsea Systems business, told Rigzone that he plans to recruit more than 2,000 people within the next three years.

GE said Saturday's event is aimed at filling 60 new positions at its Nailsea Centre of Excellence for Subsea Controls, while the firm has 40 additional jobs at its new Bristol subsea equipment hub in the nearby Aztec West business park.

Disciplines that GE is recruiting for include engineering, electrical, software, systems, project management and planning, along with supporting roles in the company's quality and commercial contract professional teams.

The invitation-only event this Saturday will see GE receive an expected 50-plus applicants who will tour the Nailsea site. Also, the firm said GE hiring managers will be on hand to answer questions and interview potential candidates.

"There is an abundance of talent of manufacturing and engineering people in Bristol and with the lack of oil and gas competition in the local area, we are finding that there are many industries with people who have transferrable skills, which we consider to be a strong fit in the subsea industry," Dean Arnison, subsea controls business leader at GE Oil & Gas, said in a statement.
