Webinar: Runway to COP26 – New energy; New jobs; New opportunities

A new UK Offshore Energy Workforce Transferability Review by Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, Scotland, highlights that the offshore energy workforce mix will change significantly in the next 10 years, with roles in decarbonised energies projected to increase from 20% to 65% of all jobs in the offshore energy sector (oil & gas, offshore wind, carbon capture utilisation and storage and hydrogen).

The Review also indicates that over 90% of the UK’s oil and gas workforce have medium to high skills transferability and are well positioned to work in adjacent energy sectors.

In the first of RGU’s ‘Runway to COP26’ webinars, Professor Paul de Leeuw and Sumin Kim shares the results of this in-depth review into the future skills needs for the offshore energy sector and what this means for the Government and Industry in regards to sustaining critical jobs.
