Attention on retention as engineering skills shortage continue

The UK’s oil and gas industry supports some 440,000 jobs across the UK and with business confidence and investment in the industry growing, an estimated 20,000 more jobs will be created in the North Sea alone this year, making the skills shortage in the thriving energy sector even more pressing than ever.

According to the Association of Graduate Recruiters, the number of graduate vacancies in the UK is set to increase by 10.2% in 2014, with the biggest growth sectors including energy, banking, IT and telecommunications. Government statistics show that there will be demand for around 87,000 graduate engineers each year for the next ten years in the UK, and currently we only produce 46,000 engineering graduates every year.

For companies like Aquaterra Energy, the knowledge that demand for graduate engineers in the UK far exceeds the current supply, is a major concern.
