Oil and Gas Jobs

This website is about oil and gas and the offshore industry in the UK and north sea. This website is mainly for people new/newer to the industry to help you on your journey to your job offshore whether it is a rig or a vessel. 

We put the majority of the info in the guide for jobs on oil rigs and boats, there are other pages on the website with different bits of information. 



I have worked in oil and gas for 10 years. 

I started putting notes together during some downtime over the course of a few trips offshore, and it gathered momentum pretty fast, people wanted to chip in some info, and now the guide is now 35+ pages. 

I think this next year is the most useful time to have a guide like this, to give you the useful information to make your decisions. 

I have kept my identity somewhat hidden, just in case I have written something or used an image that might affect my, or other peoples jobs.
