Motive Offshore Addresses Skills Shortage with Division Launch

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

With the ability to mobilize up to 50 BOSIET and GWO (Global Wind Organisation) qualified Motive staff technicians, as well as additional Motive-trained subcontractors, the new division will be headed up and developed by new appointment Alan Stewart, who brings more than 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 £20 million EBITDA business in the next five years, following significant investment from EV Private Equity earlier this year.

The global team comprises both locals and expats, all of whom have been Motive-trained. Many have been with the company since their apprenticeship, an indication that the business is committed to the continued professional development and retention of talented staff in an industry context of increasing experience and skills shortages.

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