AS Mosley has invested in two graduate trainee programmes after welcoming engineering graduates, Kenneth Morton and Prasanth Thangaraj, to its team. The move comes as part of the firm’s growth strategy, following an uplift in contracts over the last six months.
Andrew Mosley, Managing Director, comments: “We’re pleased to see an upsurge in business, as our clients invest in their assets and new technology. It’s an exciting time, but as a company, we need to think of the long term and make sure that we have the right skills in place to support future projects. Finding staff with such niche skills can be difficult, so we feel training is our only option. It can take up to two years to train staff to a competent level and we need to be sure to have enough work lined up to support recruitment, so it’s a tricky balance. It’s nice to give graduates the opportunity to put their degrees into use and to give them practical experience in their subject.”
Engineering Graduate Trainee from the University of Aberdeen, Kenneth Morton, started with the firm earlier this year. He said: “As an industry, Oil and Gas has been going through a period of restructuring and, as a result, recruitment of graduates has been very limited for the past couple of years. Things seem to be changing and I feel fortunate to be involved with a company that has strength and ambition, as well as great ethics. I feel very grateful, as many of my friends from University haven’t been as lucky in finding jobs in engineering.”
Starting at the same time as Kenneth, Engineering Graduate, Prasanth, who graduated from Robert Gordon University also comments: “It’s great to have the opportunity to put the skills I learned at University into practice and to be working with a firm that is so well regarded in the industry and has so much expertise. I’m looking forward to working with colleagues and learning from them.”
Currently employing 17 staff, AS Mosley plans to take on another two graduate over the next three months. The company has good relationships with the University of Aberdeen’s School of Engineering and Robert Gordon University; it works closely with both universities to identify suitable candidates.
