Three Scottish subsea technology centres operated by FMC are on the lookout for 240 new personnel to fulfil demand in the growing offshore sector.

FMC has announced new recruitment plans for its plans in Dunfermline, Glasgow and Aberdeen, to increase its total staffing to 1,000 posts.

“This recruitment campaign is the result of a sustained increase in orders and planned business growth, and our efforts to design innovative subsea processing technologies that allow customers to increase oil recovery and extend the life of their offshore reservoirs,” explained Dan Neelon,  completion systems manager for FMC Technologies UK.

New staff are needed for the manufacturing facility in Dunfermline, for its Glasgow engineering and research facility and at FMC’s Aberdeen engineering design centre, the company said.

“The Scottish design, manufacturing and service operations continue to play a key part in our innovation and our state-of-the-art production facilities also allow FMC to accelerate equipment deliveries,” Neelon said.

Funding for the new jobs is being backed with £2.5 million of Regional Selective Assistance (RSA) provided through Scottish Enterprise. For details of the vacancies, go to:
