Engineering Job call - Skill needs in energy industry - Significant decline in science, engineering and technical recruits

ref: ‘Skills needs in the energy industry’ report by the Energy Institute

"Energy skills shortage: a boardroom issue"

Future skills shortages and leadership development needs in the energy sector should be treated as strategic boardroom issues, according to the Energy Institute (EI).

This was one of the key recommendations drawn from surveys conducted by the EI in partnership with Deloitte , the management consultancy, and Norman Broadbent,an organisation dedicated to the search for executive talent in the energy sector, between 2005 and 2007.

A summary of the ‘Skills needs in the energy industry’ report was presented at International Petroleum Week, an annual four-day programme of major conferences and functions hosted in London by the EI.

According to EI, a significant decline in recruits, especially those with science, engineering and technical skills is reported.


For the first time, IP Week featured a seminar specifically dedicated to the issue of skills needs in the energy industry, during which delegates from 12 different oil and gas producing countries heard experts outline additional solutions.

The media report may be found at Energy Institute (EI)[link_pdf].
