Aberdeen-based subsea and marine recruitment specialist etpm is continuing its company growth by opening a new office in Great Yarmouth and taking on two new members of staff to meet increasing client demand for experienced ROV staff.
Great Yarmouth is strategically well placed to service oil, gas, marine and renewables activity in the North Sea and in addition to recruiting for the global marketplace, etpm Great Yarmouth will join a range of specialist support services supporting the offshore industry in that region.
Sally Spaull and Sara Logan, who will be based in the new office, will focus on expanding etpm’s ROV business through the provision of experienced personnel of all levels, ranging from pilot technicians to superintendents and inspectors.
Highly experienced in their field, both Sally and Sara previously worked with UKPS and have particular knowledge of the international ROV market. They join Aberdeen-based Kerry Hadden, who started with etpm in April to set up and develop the ROV recruitment division in the Aberdeen office.
etpm Managing Director Jeff Mountain said the expansion was an important part of the company’s future growth plans.
“We set up a specialist ROV recruitment line in Aberdeen earlier in the year because of considerable industry demand for that particular skills set. Continuing to develop and grow our ROV business means that etpm can ensure that we continue to respond to our client requests quickly and efficiently in order to support the requirements of our offshore sector.
“Expanding that line to open our Great Yarmouth office to support industry requirements in the Central and Southern North Sea is a natural progression for us and an important addition to the services available in that region.”
Earlier this year etpm also established a new Engineering Division, based in Aberdeen, in response to increasing demands for onshore personnel and for a commercial line providing support staff in administration, finance, HR and sales and marketing.
etpm doubled its recruitment staff in 2012 and continued expansion across all divisions has seen the number of staff grow from 18 to 25 since the start of the year.
