‘Freedom, regular travel, a well-paid job, working together with fun colleagues from other cultures… Supervisor/Quality Inspector is simply honest work! I really liked it.’ We interviewed Rene Goutziers. Even with his positive experiences offshore, he made the move from Sea2Shore. After the mediation process at TOS, he now works as Equipment Engineer.
‘Inspecting the fire- and explosion-resistant doors on offshore vessels and marine boats, but also in buildings that require special doors. The freedom and responsibility that you have as Supervisor/Quality Inspector is fantastic. Together, you work through a project from start to finish. Unfortunately, difficult times for the offshore sector meant the end of my contract. That’s when TOS came my way!’
‘In my work, I like to consider my opportunities for the future. How can I develop myself further? Are there promotion possibilities and courses I can follow? TOS really listened to my wishes and came up with a job as a Deck Equipment Engineer at a great company (Boskalis). I now work as an Equipment Engineer and am still in consultation about the exact tasks I will be doing. One thing is already clear: it’s a career move with a future. Are you also considering a new career onshore? Follow your instincts and hang in there. Even if it doesn’t work out at first. And keep working safely, as you learn to do in offshore.’
