New Jobs at Osbit Due to £7.5M Contract Wins

Osbit Limited, the Northumberland-based offshore engineering and technology company, has embarked on a recruitment drive after securing £7.5m worth of new contracts in the past three months.

The additional work, which includes projects for the oil & gas, subsea and offshore wind sectors, is enabling the company to increase its total headcount by around 40 percent, with 16 new engineers, support staff and contractors.

Further recruitment is continuing at the company, which now employs over 60 people at its head office in Riding Mill and assembly facility at the Port of Blyth.

Osbit is also keen to continue its commitment to offering student placements as part of its graduate recruitment programme. Three undergraduates are currently undertaking six-month placements with the company, with a fourth shortly joining Osbit for a year.

Brendon Hayward, managing director of Osbit, said: “Our reputation for delivering innovative offshore engineering with a flexible service is enabling us to secure new work, which, in turn, is generating new employment opportunities.

“As part of the North East of England’s high quality energy sector supply we are proud to draw upon the region’s skilled and talented workforce, while also attracting people from outside of the area.

“We have a strong track record in attracting graduate engineers to the business, many of whom have previously completed placements with us, and who can see the exciting career progression we offer at Osbit.”
