The interview has passed, but thanks for the reply.
You are all 100% correct;
It's a half arsed way of agencies all vying for the same positions. Maris (GE), Oceanscan, UKPS (FET), Subservpro, to name but a few; exactly the same cut and paste job adverts.
Also it's a way of populating their databases, and finding out where you have been working, how much you have been earning - this is normal market research/agency practice at this time of year.
Lesser agencies always make up false adverts, to try to get your latest details from you - that's been happening since the birth of 'spotty teenage wannabe millionaire' agencies popping up over the last 5 years or so.
As a trainee, you shouldn't be looking at agencies my man - get yourself directly into a large company to build up your experience and training, Oceaneering perhaps? Research, research and research agin. Thee is enough information in the public domain to find information such as company charge out rates, average day rates etc, etc.
If you are dumb enough to try freelancing as a trainee P/T, then I would give Subservpro a go, best of a bad bunch. I wish you the best of British.
Don't listen to any b.s like, ''Saipem has fixed rates'' That is utter poo, always had been, always will be. Saipem has a serious lack of staff!
I wouldn't bother with Maris (GE), they don't pay expenses as they should, at the time when wages are paid..they will only pay when the client pays, and in this circumstance it's Saipem roles, so don't expect to see them for months after submission.
If you advertise a post, then have the professional courtesy to adverse the rate - period.
I would say that you will need a 'can do' attitude, and be able to fault-find LOGICALLY and successfully.
Tooling is not as technically demanding as aircraft systems, and really, other than fit and operate, you only need to be able to fix it.
As long as you have a pulse, can breathe unaided, demonstrate a pragmatic and logical thought process and are a thoroughly nice chap (ess?) then you should be fine.
every day my inbox is innundated by loads of these fishing expeditions and they repeat them all the time followed a couple of days later by availability requests from same agents its stupid ,, and frankly annoying and vary unproffessional
Saipem cant hold onto staff contract or permy due to poor rates and crap conditions on some vessel and a hopless back office staff who cant organise visas or get payroll and expenses right ,,
I'm heading to Aberdeen in a couple weeks to do certs and am trying to arrange meetings. Could anybody pm me an HR email contact for Canyon Helix? It's the only one I'm having issues finding.
I would greatly appreciate it.
Every company, contract and area of the world is different.
You can either work a dayrate contract where you are paid only when you work. You can get a fixed salary and an offshore allowance for every day you work offshore. You can also get a salary and a guaranteed number of offshore days every month whether you work them or not.
There are some companies out there that take you on and then leave you at home for months just paying you a small retainer with no guarantee they will send you offshore to earn proper money. As you are planning on working in GOM, be aware that Oceaneering has been known to do this with some new starts.
Sorry you must add your full contact details other wise your mail will be deleted by one of the Moderators .

It's also a very cyclical (or cynical) industry! Rates are being squeezed down right now.
There does seem to be an industry wide effort to drive down costs just now?
I did hear about one oil company telling our office they had to find some cost savings...after just opening their new 33 million quid offices!
Finally someone, who knows it all - after all these years, still a terrible tea.

Roumungery, don't you just love it!
I heard that there are 5 FRF to the £!
Please show me more technical spec and price.
Ok I have updated the list .Most Uk and agency's in Europe offer the same work your just have to shop around or go direct if possible for the best rates.
Please post some specs, and a few pictures.
