Maersk Drilling: Recruitment on track

The offshore industry's hunger for employees is big in the North Sea, the United States as well as Africa but even though Maersk Drilling is challenged by the lack of qualified labour in certain areas, the company’s recruitment of up to 3,000 new employees goes according to plans.

During the next four to five years, Maersk Drilling will have to recruit thousands of new employees in a market in which the competition for the employees’ goodwill is rife. It seems to be an almost impossible task but so far, the recruitment efforts go according to plans, Jesper B. Madsen, Vice President, Human Ressources at Maersk Drilling, tells ShippingWatch.

“Of course, 3,000 new employees may appear to be a lot of people but you will have to take ourfuture growth into consideration which comes from us having 30 drilling rigs within four to five years. That is why it is a task we expect to solve even though we are challenged in some areas,” Jesper B. Madsen says, referring to Maersk Drilling operating "only"16 rigs and has seven more underway at the moment.
