“We’re aim­ing to help buck the cur­rent jobs trend”

In­ver­ness-based en­ergy in­dus­try re­cruit­ment firm Orion Group has been asked to sup­ply 40 work­ers for a re­new­ables project in Scot­land. Orion, which also has of­fices in Aberdeen and In­ver­gor­don, said welders and platers were needed by a ma­jor in­fra­struc­ture ser­vices and en­gi­neer­ing group.

Gary Scott, Orion’s re­gional gen­eral man­ager, said: “We’ve been work­ing with our client for sev­eral years and have built a solid rep­u­ta­tion in de­liv­er­ing the best in class per­son­nel to their key en­gi­neer­ing projects in the oil and gas and ship­build­ing in­dus­tries.

“We’re aim­ing to help buck the cur­rent jobs trend caused by the many fluc­tu­a­tions in a num­ber of Scot­tish in­dus­tries in re­cent years with the re­cruit­ment of 40 new jobs.”

The con­tract, which will be man­aged by Orion’s Dun­fermline of­fice, rep­re­sents a pos­i­tive change in Scot­land's jobs mar­ket, Mr Scott said.

“We ap­pre­ci­ate the in­dus­try has seen some chal­leng­ing times of late how­ever it’s promis­ing to see a num­ber of green shoots ap­pear­ing," he said.

“We’re en­cour­aged by de­vel­op­ments in the re­new­ables sec­tor and look for­ward to con­tribut­ing more to this ex­pand­ing mar­ket.”
