Working at Jenz Offshore
When you work offshore, you are working at sea. This means that there are important aspects to this work that are not found in onshore work.
It is, of course, quite an experience to work on a platform for an extended period of time. You need to possess good social and mental qualities to be successful in your work. You will travel internationally, be transported by helicopter to the offshore platform, and be given a variety of responsibilities that make offshore work challenging. It is incredibly hard work but you can also enjoy life on an offshore platform. You will have internet access, sports facilities, good food, and opportunities for relaxation. There are more than enough facilities to keep you entertained. This is what makes offshore work a fantastic challenge.

Offshore. Here I come
Taxi? Not quite. You will be travelling to work by helicopter. If you work internationally, all your flights from the Netherlands to wherever you need to be in the world are arranged for you. Once you arrive on the platform you will work uninterrupted for fourteen to twenty-one days of twelve-hour shifts.
Every day you will enjoy four well-prepared meals that have been cooked by a cook or a catering company. You have to take good care of yourself because you will need every last bit of energy. The work is hard and every day brings new dangers and stress. You will be working together with a team. You will have the opportunity to train yourself and learn many new skills that will help you grow and advance on the job ladder. As an offshore employee you will want for nothing.
Meals, accommodation, and relaxation are all provided for you. You do not need to pay anything. This make working in the offshore industry even more attractive.
If you are just entering the job market without any experience or relevant education you can still find a place in the offshore industry. You can often start your career in the offshore industry in positions such as Maintenance Roustabout or General Roustabout without any relevant prior qualifications. If you are an experienced welder or scaffolder there are many different options available to you. In the Netherlands you just need one piece of paper, the SCC Certificate, to be allowed in the harbour. The SCC Certificate is issued by the Netherlands’ Safety, Health and the Environment Checklist Contractors. This is the most important certificate for safe work in the Netherlands. Everybody who performs work that has an increased risk of bodily harm has to be SCC certified. Completing the SCC course provides you with the necessary information and knowledge about working safely, and about health and environmental awareness.
Offshore Safety training: a prerequisite
While you do not need any specific prior qualifications for entry-level jobs in the offshore industry, you are required to follow Offshore Safety Training in addition to the SCC Certificate. Offshore Safety Training includes: First Aid, safety training, evacuation and helicopter flight procedures, emergency landing procedures, survival techniques, fire prevention, firefighting, and survival at sea.
If you are looking for a job higher than entry level then you do need to have completed a relevant education such as intermediate vocational education (MBO) or higher vocational education (HBO) in Engineering. Every position has its own set of required education and training, skills, and experience.
