24 December 2012

Stork Technical Services, the leading global provider of knowledge-based asset integrity services for the oil and gas, chemical and power sectors, has welcomed the first intake of eight graduates for the company’s recently launched UK Graduate Training Programme.

The ‘Class of 2012’ graduates will take on roles in a number of divisions including HSSEQ, project management, technical engineering, finance and commercial. Stork received more than 100 applicants for the programme, which was launched as part of the company’s aim to attract, develop and retain exceptional talent in the energy industry.

Each graduate will participate in a bespoke learning programme where they will experience different operations within their division to allow them to fully understand how their part of the business operates. Graduates are provided with continual training and development opportunities to help progress their skills and will have the support of an experienced business mentor from the company’s senior management team, throughout the two-year programme.

On successful completion of the programme, the graduates will be offered full time roles within their respective divisions.

John McLeish, HR Director – UK & Africa, for Stork Technical Services said: "We are very pleased with our first graduate intake and we had a hard job selecting the final candidates given the level and quality of interest. We recognise the importance of developing and retaining the brightest and best in the industry, and I am confident that our graduate training programme will be a major contributor to our long-term success.”

Martyn Wright, Graduate Engineer for Stork Technical Services, said: "Joining such a well known and established company like Stork is an exciting opportunity. The graduate programme offers a wealth of opportunities and is a natural progression from my university studies. Stork will give me a well rounded learning experience and I am looking forward to seeing how my studies apply to the real business environment.”
