Statoil plans to recruit more than 50 skilled oil & gas workers annually in the years ahead to ensure that the company has the right competence and capacity on the Norwegian continental shelf.

As a result of the downturn in the oil and gas sector, the number of school places for vocational education and training has been significantly reduced, particularly within the field of processing. Applications for apprenticeships have also dropped in the same period.

Although the need to recruit skilled workers within processing, electro-mechanics and logistics will no doubt vary from year to year, we have a long-term recruitment strategy.

The recruitment strategy for offshore personnel will also address the needs and solutions we have within our onshore facilities.  This provides opportunities for good professional development among all of our skilled workers.

The number will vary somewhat between disciplines and from year to year, but the aim is to maintain an even level of recruitment for many years to come.
