  • 6+/- months left of the contract

  • We would require candidates to be ready to go through training and start work offshore immediately.
  • Outside of the BST/H2S, ECC covers the cost of all other training requirements and covers the cost of all training recertifications at the time of expiry.
  • We have and can pay for the training upfront on behalf of the successful candidates and clawback through payroll deduction however those who obtain these certs on their own have first priority over those who do not.
