Global oil and gas service company, Tracerco, is actively recruiting female talent across its company as it aims to promote equality and diversity in the workplace.

In a press release, the company says it is “committed to making a big drive towards recruiting the very best talent in the industry, with a particular focus on attracting females at every level to join its varied STEM roles”.

As part of the STEM agenda, the sector is aiming to have a target of 1.5 million women working in STEM by 2030, equating to 30% of the workforce being female.

Since the start of 2022, Tracerco has appointed 64 new staff with 33% being women. It is now looking to grow its workforce across the globe within the next year – including appointing several graduates and apprentices.

Tracerco recently invited 30 girls from a specialist STEM college to attend its state-of-the-art facilities sited in the UK, introducing them to women currently working in the company.

Speaking about the recruitment drive, Jon Tate, Managing Director at Tracerco said: “We are delighted to be at the very forefront in encouraging women in STEM. The industry is positively shifting and women offer a new diversity of opinion which encourages ideas to be challenged and inspires creativity.”
