Jobs available in the Houston area with Maersk Group

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

The oil and drilling divisions of the Maersk Group has several open employment opportunities in the Houston area and more pending.

Maersk Drilling is beginning to recruit candidates for two new build drill ships in the Gulf of Mexico beginning in 2014.

As a recruitment tool, Maersk Group launched a free computer game called "Quest for Oil" that allows players to experience the stresses and strains of successfully managing an oil company.

With a large percentage of experienced employees in the petroleum industry scheduled to retire in the years ahead, a lack of qualified workers may prove to leave a scarcity to fill those positions.

A recent survey on the North Sea oil industry determined that 70 percent of employers are "struggling" to recruit quality candidates and the recruitment crisis is "set to get worse."
