‘Recruitment agency TOP Offshore focuses on experienced QA-HSE specialists for the offshore and maritime industry. Their clients consist of larger, prominent dredging and offshore companies as well as (smaller) organizations such as family owned shipyards and organizations with activities in the (onshore and offshore) Renewable Energy. Melvin van Leeuwen, recruitment consultant at TOP Offshore states ‘there certainly is a demand for skilled QA-HSE personnel, however, the challenge lies in finding the perfect match.’
‘At the Maritime & Offshore Career Event (MOCE) on April 2 in Rotterdam, Melvin also met many students who came to orient themselves towards a job in the offshore industry. “We mediate people worldwide, regardless of nationality, for our international client base. We focus on specialists with more than five years’ experience in the QA- HSE. Experience is essential because our people operate in high risk environments, for instance during the installation of wind turbines . We provide QA-HSE specialists to assure HSE project preparation and also act on-site as HSE supervisors to oversee that the project’s safety and quality are at the highest level.’
