With a spotlight on a specific facet of Global E&C's business—the modular design and build services – viewers were shown various aspects of careers that support the UK’s energy producing industry.

With the participation of eight individuals from Global E&C’s modular division, each documentary features an individual case study through exclusive interviews and behind-the-scenes footage.

Global E&C collaborated with media company, Energy Insider, for this project. As a government-funded organisation committed to enhancing educational content on the energy industry and related job roles, Energy Insider focuses on making information both exciting and compelling to attract a diverse talent pool for the evolving energy transition.

Having recently completed filming, Energy Insider has now unveiled the series on a pioneering app-style platform, reminiscent of popular streaming services like Netflix, providing recruiters and educational outlets access to a curated selection of business case studies.

Commenting on the platform, Energy Insider’s Founder, Murray Duguid, said, “improving and modernising the way we teach our job opportunities will be vital for attracting young talent going forward. These case studies serve to illuminate various aspects of the energy industry, contributing to a more informed and engaged workforce.”

As a key contributor to the energy landscape, Global E&C recognises the importance of cultivating a skilled and dynamic workforce to address the growing demands of the industry.

Global E&C’s CEO, Terry Allan, explains, “Global E&C is hugely supportive of initiatives aimed at fostering skills in the industry and is proud to spotlight the commendable work being done by legacy oil and gas companies in the evolving energy landscape.

Our Modular Division of Global E&C is a great example of the just energy transition as our customers are in both the traditional oil and gas sector and the burgeoning alternative energy industry.

We believe it’s important for businesses like ours to shine a light on the skills that are truly transferable across traditional and new energy sectors, and how oil and gas has played a key role in developing the capabilities needed across multi energy markets.

Our modular business focuses on various projects, including creating localised equipment rooms for oil and gas customers seeking to repurpose their assets and serial manufacturing of plants to support customers in developing their first-of-a-kind plants across emerging clean energy markets. Whether you're an engineer, designer, electrical technician, or facilities manager, there's a place for you in our modular business.”

Global E&C employs more than 1,500 personnel working across facilities onshore and offshore and are committed to addressing the evolving energy landscape. From its Aberdeen headquarters and facilities across the UK, Global E&C is currently engaged in aiding decarbonising existing energy infrastructure while concurrently delivering a multitude of projects to bolster EPC services in the growing alternative energy markets.

Global E&C believes it plays a pivotal role in facilitating the transition from conventional to new energy production. Commenting on the organisation’s efforts to share insights into its business, Aberdeenshire Council’s Ewen Allardyce, who looks after Employability and Economic Development, said, “The showcase of talent and their passion shown in this excellent suite of videos will inspire our future generations in the energy jobs sector.”
