  • Global Marine Systems

    Anyone know much about this company? They used to be the old BT/Cable and wireless ships. Anyone worked for them?

    I know they used to recruit their own cadets but go through SSTG these days.

    Looks like interesting work?

    Re: Global Marine Systems

    They have 150 years experience and leaders in marine cable installation and maintenance. Now I dont know what they are like personally, but they are into constructing wind farms, at this time when everyone is into that sort of stuff, so they should be swimming in money.

    I will be taking them into consideration at my interview with SSTG this Wednesday, Cause at the moment that sounds like a pretty secure job in this economical climate.

      No job is secure in this climate matey! All the Maersk lads in my group were shafted and they spent three years bragging about how they all had jobs at the end!
      I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.....

          we had a c;lass trip to on of their ships, CS Sovereign, really friendly captain - he pretty much confirmed what lewis is saying, loads of work on right now wiring up windfarms and lots of future work for the wind farms they will start constructing off China.

            Yes, I do agree with you on that one, but its as close as you can get I would imagine.

              Who says the company building the windfarms in china are going to use/be allowed to use British labour?

                  Guinness: The cableship and crew were going to be hired out as one to wire up the windfarms, seemed to be all British officers with a crew from the Philippines. The Chinese don't have the expertise yet.

                  Regarding job security, its all about making yourself hard to replace. Keeping ahead of the competition by being the most skilled, getting into specialist areas such as offshore, of course you're betting the growth areas will continue to need offshore type vessels.

                      Hey man,

                      I've got a mate that works for Global Marine (at some point on the C.S. Soveign), has been for a few years now. He qualified as an ETO and is now an ROV Tech/Pilot. Seems to enjoy it - usually does 2 months on/off. He was recently working up near Orkney installing alternative energy of some sort (not sure which project), and previously in the Irish Sea, North Sea and before that China Sea.

                      Hope that helps.

                        Re: Global Marine Systems

                        I was a Global Cadet and now currently working for them. I have to say it's not too bad, good conditions, reasonable pay and a nice bunch of people - although the guarantee of a job at the end of it is all down to timing......

                        The company is, however, going from strength to strength on the back of surging demand for renewable energy and an increase it internet traffic............ also helped along nicely by a increase in worldwide fishing activity!

                          I put down Global Marine as my 1st choice after my interview with SSTG, I dont believe they have released the number of cadets they want yet but they do seem like a really good/interesting company to work for.
