Business secretary Vince Cable demonstrated his commitment to energy industry skills with a fact-finding visit to Aker Solutions in Aberdeen to meet apprentices undergoing training there.


The Secretary of State for Business Innovation and Skills was told of the company's plans to recruit up to 200 new personnel in Aberdeen as part of a drive to man-up for the future labour demands in the offshore industry.

Currently the company employs 100 graduates and apprentices and the business secretary met some of them during his tour.

“We anticipate that workload levels will remain high over the coming years and we want to be well-placed to capitalise on future opportunities,” said Mike Forbes, one of the managingdirectors at the Aker Solutions site in Aberdeen.

Forbes said the company aims to inspire young people to take up engineering careers as soon as they leave school and support them during their training. “are pleased that Dr Cable is keen to see how this works in practice and [I] hope that we can demonstrate the importance of encouraging our young people into the engineering and the exciting energy sector.”

Forbes added: “We have taken a pro-active approach to our recruitment and are manning-up now ahead of the big waves of work we know are coming, this involves nurturing our own talent as well as recruiting more experienced people.”
