Energy Institute holds new oil and gas jobs event after strong interest at Aberdeen PACE expo

Energy Institute Aberdeen

The Energy Institute (EI) has arranged a follow up event after they were inundated by enquiries at the Scottish Government’s ‘Partnership Action for Continuing Employment’ (PACE) event held in Aberdeen recently

This event saw more than 800 people who may be impacted by the downturn in the N. Sea upstream oil and gas sector and could be at risk of redundancy.

Recognising the need for professional development and support, a considerable number of attendees enquired how to join and become chartered through the EI.

As a follow up the EI will be holding two workshops during the morning of  8 October at Aberdeen’s Beach Ballroom to explain how the Chartership process works. These workshops are restricted to 80 delegates so early booking is advised to reserve a place.

With some 3,500 members, Aberdeen is the largest EI branch outside London.

The EI is the leading chartered professional membership body for the energy industry. Within the upstream arena, the EI provides exclusive opportunities for professional recognition, technical guidance, plus a number of unique Chartered status (including ‘Chartered Petroleum Engineer’ and ‘Chartered Energy Manager’) as well as technical partnering, training and networking.

The EI is supporting over 22,000 individuals working in or studying energy and over 200 companies in the sector worldwide across an extensive UK and overseas branch network.
