Aker Solutions to create 500 UK jobs
Aker Solutions is set to recruit 300 staff to its Aberdeen operation and create 200 positions at its newly established West London engineering office.

The oil and gas technology services company, which has increased its order backlog by 19% since January, is one of Scotland's largest employees and has a total workforce of more than 17,000.

The company said it aims to create 500 jobs in total at its London offices by the end of 2015. Located in Chiswick Park, the global hub will support field development projects for the North Sea and worldwide.

"Our company has had a historical presence in London, so this is a re-entry to an engineering market we know very well," said Valborg Lundegaard, head of engineering at Aker. "So far we have received more than 2,000 job applications, which underlines that there is scope to grow this business rapidly."

Aker's managing director, Alan Brunnen added: "We anticipate that workload levels will remain high over the coming years, which is why we are staffing up our UK organisation now. We want to be well placed to capitalise on future opportunities that arise in our markets".
