Atlas eyes Gemini hiring spree
Recruitment aimed at range of cable-lay positions off Netherlands
Recruitment company Atlas Professionals is to fill a variety of positions in connection with Northland’s 600MW Gemini offshore wind farm in the Netherlands.
The company has said as many as 500 people are expected to work on the wind farm, which is currently under construction, and that it is lined up to supply many of these.
Atlas is working closely with German harbour construction company TAGU to fill roles related to cable-lay work at the wind farm. This includes jobs such as barge masters, tension operators, riggers and shift superintendents.
Atlas business line manager Laura Smith said: “We have worked with TAGU on a variety of projects in recent years, which has allowed us to develop an understanding of how they work and, in turn, provide long-term employment opportunities for highly skilled professionals.”
Gemini is located 85km off the coast of the Netherlands and will be one of the world’s biggest offshore wind farms when production starts in 2016.
