Ion Science has announced a recruitment drive across a number of departments at its facility in Fowlmere, Cambridgeshire as a result of recent growth. Ion Science is immediately looking to recruit a number of key positions including Trainee Production Assistant, Company Buyer, Quality Control Technician, Trainee Marketing Assistant, Trainee Accounts Assistant, Customer Service Administrator and Building & Maintenance Person. Although relevant experience will be required for some of the vacancies, full training and guidance will be given for the trainee roles especially and those with a can do attitude will be given every opportunity for career progression.


OPITO International has secured a contract with the Ministry of Oil and Gas in Oman. The global oil and gas training standards body is working with the government, the Oman Society for Petroleum Services (OPAL) and employers to improve the delivery of training that will ensure the country has a skilled and safe oil and gas workforce. This will have positive contribution effects on the economy in Oman by creating greater employment opportunities for Omanis.

With a track record in helping oil and gas provinces to build indigenous workforces to exploit their oil and gas revenues, OPITO is working on a phased plan that will provide the Omani Government with a sustainable solution to the employment needs of its people and to the demands of its growing oil and gas industry.

The first phase is an analysis of the current provision of vocational and non-vocational training throughout Oman. OPITO will be visiting training centres and colleges to identify the standard of training and then provide recommendations on how technical training provision can be improved to deliver a framework of qualifications which will meet current and future skills demands and improve competence in the operations and maintenance activities associated with the extraction of hydrocarbons.
