Orion Group to hire 40 new workers for Scottish renewable jobs in Central Belt


Inverness-based recruitment agency Orion Group is set to boost the Scottish energy sector with the availability of 40 renewables project jobs in the Central Belt.

Job requirements with a major infrastructure services and engineering group mean Orion has the opportunity to recruit for contract welders and platers positions. Experienced personnel are needed for fast growing renewables and energy projects.

Gary Scott, Orion Group’s regional General Manager, said: “We’ve been working with our client for several years and have built a solid reputation in delivering the best in class personnel to their key engineering projects in the oil and gas and shipbuilding industries.

“We’re aiming to help buck the current jobs trend caused by the many fluctuations in a number of Scottish industries in recent years with the recruitment of 40 new jobs.”

The contract will be managed by Orion’s office in Dunfermline.
