Motive Offshore Addresses Skills Shortage with Division Launch


Motive Offshore Group, specialists in marine equipment fabrication and rental, has announced the launch of Motive Personnel – a division specifically created to provide offshore technicians to its global customer base.

With the ability to mobilise up to 50 BOSIET and GWO (Global Wind Organisation)-qualified Motive staff technicians, as well as additional Motive-trained sub-contractors, the new division will be headed up and developed by new appointment, Alan Stewart, who brings over 20 years' operational experience in the marine industry to the role.

The launch of Motive Personnel sees the Banff-headquartered company continue its assertive growth strategy to become a £20million EBITDA business in the next five years, following significant investment from EV Private Equity (EV) earlier this year.

Motive Offshore Sales & Operations Director, James Gregg, explains the rationale behind the new division: “Since day one, Motive has been providing clients with qualified offshore personnel, who are clients tell us provide an invaluable service. That's been a significant part of our success story thus far and the time is now right to create a tangible personnel division, which we know has huge growth potential.

“Unusually, our multi-disciplined technicians are not restricted to working on our own equipment; far from it. They are renowned for becoming integral members of our clients' wider team, wherever they operate.

“Our global team comprises both locals and expats, all of whom have been Motive-trained. In fact, many have been with us since their apprenticeship. I believe this truly illustrates our commitment to the continued professional development - and retention - of our talented staff against an industry context of increasing experience and skills shortages.”

Motive Personnel plans to expand its global pool of technicians by 20% over the coming 12 months.
