Subsea skills shortage

AUSTRALIA has a history of looking overseas to solve its skills shortages, particularly in specialised areas. Well, the job just keeps getting harder: the UK has revealed that 10,000 jobs could be created in its subsea sector in the next 12 months.

Following a survey, Subsea UK has found that almost one fifth of its membership will need more than 2000 people in the next 12 months to cope with the growth in the industry.
