Attracting great minds to Great Yarmouth
With an established head office in Hull and a thriving Aberdeen branch providing specialist services such as flow assurance, OSL is a success story that is now being told in Great Yarmouth.
Offering our multi-disciplined expertise as Consulting Engineers and Project Managers to the gas and oil industry, our portfolio covers a spectrum of projects across the UK and abroad, attracting graduates, providing their training to become accredited engineers, and retaining them for a future in technical design and consultancy.
Neil Barnard, OSL’s Operations Manager, said:
“We provide ‘life of field’ engineering and design support through innovative clever thinking based on sound engineering practices, reinforced by our extensive operational experience. Our differentiator is that we add value through smarter solutions that ultimately helps our clients increase revenue, also reducing cost and project timelines.”
Our expansion is set to create new jobs in Great Yarmouth, as well as attracting domestic and foreign investors to the area.
Richard Moralee, OSL’s Business Development Manager, based at the Great Yarmouth branch, said:
“We’re bringing new individuals into town, helping them to maximise on their potential, and raising the level of expertise in Great Yarmouth. Through the IChemE’s ACTS scheme, you can actually see raw graduates transform into confident consultants. OSL are growing as a company, but we’re also nurturing the specialist market and keeping it buoyant.”
Another aspect of drawing people into the town for employment is the revenue it generates for the wider economy. From accommodation and retail purchases, to dining out and using local transportation, more people means more business for a host of organisations and services.
“Towns always strive to attract people for events and recreation,” explained Richard, “but it’s new jobs that result in the largest influx of commerce on a long-term basis. Great Yarmouth’s proximity to the University of East Anglia is a large advantage, as there’s constant access to fresh engineering graduates eager to start their journey toward chartered status.”
Currently based in the Novus Centre on The Conge, our Great Yarmouth branch is set to fill the office with seasoned engineers and budding specialists alike.
“We’re very excited about what the future holds,” added Richard, “and we can’t wait to have new blood adopt our philosophy of clever thinking.”
