Promoting Careers in Oil & Gas

OPITO, alongside industry partners, has launched two online tools to raise awareness of the careers available and skills required to work in the oil and gas industry. The Oil & Gas Skills Navigator is a digital library that provides tools, links and information on careers, companies, education, training and the sector itself and is aimed at school pupils, graduates, employers and those looking for training information. It has been developed in response to a recommendation in the Oil and Gas Industrial Strategy for a centralised online skills portal. Meanwhile, the Skills Connect tool helps ex-military personnel to identify roles best suited to their existing skill sets/requirements.
