    Spot on K2 , Go Direct if you can but like we have both said don't believe any thing they say its there job to get you offshore and earning them money and they will tell you any thing , Because once your offshore your screwed if you walk off or down tools as a few have done in the past your end up with nothing plus having to pay your own flights back .

    So in the end as projects requirements arise make them public that way people can go direct if them wish .As for thinking going via a agency gives you protection its very clear that may not be the case after reading many of the topics on this forum .

    Going via a agency means your working for them and not for the company so should there be a problem you should get paid .Its up to the agency to get there money out of the company but its clear that is not the case .

    But I think the main word is more transparency but that's never going to happen .

  • Welcome SJvdW to Rov world sorry it would seem that no body replied to you so thought I would say " Hi "

    Yes like you say there are many Topics on the site regarding finding employment in the Rov industry if you read " ROV Rookie Corner " That should point you in the right direction .

    Many of the members on the site have many years of experience so should you have any questions please ask away .

    There are a few things to consider but you don't give any detail. I suggest you let your supervisor assess the situation and make any decisions.

  • You don't give enough information for anyone to advise you? You won't have an issue getting home for compassionate reasons but if you don't like the colour of the ROV buoyancy then going home will be problematic.

    aha, yes, thank makes sense, thanks Ray. You're right, my cable only has the outer, then kevlar, then the inner conductors.

    Good link Ray. I scanned through the Data Protection Act and there are about three circumstance where a body can refuse to provide data but none of these apply in our circumstances.

    Regarding charges for provision of data, pay nothing. One of my experiences required two years of paper bank statements, the bank requested £1/sheet so I dropped them a letter with reference to the Data Protection Act and received all statements swiftly with no charge. I have never paid anything to obtain data including one body who I sent monthly requests to. Never been refused data either and all information requested was supplied within 30 days (seems this has changed to 40 days in the link).

    The simple solution is to never accept a rate you aren't happy with. If you are happy then you should have no cause to go digging. If you do wish to obtain a copy of the client invoice try asking the agency, you never know. If you do use the DPA 1998 ask yourself what you will do with your findings bearing in mind you accepted the contract in the first place. Will be interesting to hear if anyone uses this method and also to hear of their findings.

  • 07/21/14--11:30: Going Congo
  • Hello,

    I want to enquire how safe it is to go offshore in Congo ?
    From last 2 years i was working in Middle east,
    Although despite of safety issues and work culture you don't have to worry about terrorism or Malaria.

    Now someone has offered me a job in Congo and i saw UK travel advice is not very good regarding Congo so want second opinion.

    Actually it is a standard operating procedure and is very common. Not sure where you have been working?

    You are correct in that individual circumstances will govern any decision of speed and there can be much to consider or very little to consider depending on the evolution and scenario.

    Probably best for anyone who wants to know, to chat with their Supervisor - provided their Supervisor has the necessary experience, which is not always the case these days Rolling Eyes


    We used to transit at 2 to 3 kts in the helcom area of the Baltic, recovery because of washdown wasn't practical at all. That was with a workclass and top hat TMS

    Recent offers turned down:

    SOS - Client rep £550-600

    Orion - ROV supervisor £50k p.a.

    Interesting that some agencies seem real keen to offer what they think are good jobs. They are genuinely surprised when these are turned down. Sometimes wonder how much knowledge of the industry they have.

    Hasten to add, these are just two jobs, the agencies may have better opportunities but first impressions and all that.........
