    Thanks for the responses guys, bleak times maybe. Anyone that could further offer any advice or guidance regarding offshore and supply?

    Unfortunately I don't have a DP ticket, but would love advice in that regard. I am somewhat fortunate to have an Oil DCE if that helps.

    Sad to say but I reckon this will make it worse for all walks of life when it comes to finding jobs for the foreseeable future - who knows how many companies are going to fold as a result - especially if it goes on till after the summer.
    While that might be true for the offshore industry abroad due to the travel restrictions, I still see plenty of North Sea based job advertisements for various ranks on LinkedIn from the usual recruitment agencies.

    Covid vacancies?

    I've recently seen alot of references made on LinkedIn to the fact that with the current situation regarding COVID, there will now be more vacancies for British officers.

    I don't want to be seen to be trying to benefit off the back of a pandemic but can anyone speak to how true this is? I'm a newly qualified deck officer myself holding a COC unlimited and absolutely itching to get that first trip done.

    Thanks
Working...
