Jee defy downturn and expand workforce by 30%
March 2nd, 2018
Jee Limited, a multi-disciplined subsea engineering consultancy and training specialist has moved offices in Aberdeen as it continues to grow and expand its workforce.
The full company headcount has went up from 33 to 43 to cover the growing project load with a £4m turnover for the financial year ending in April and due to its strong business model has instigated another 20% growth in staffing for 2018 with an expected target of £4.8m for the 2018/19 financial year.
Founded by Trevor Jee in 1988, Jee has offices in Aberdeen and Tonbridge, and specialises in design, integrity management, pigging, lifetime extension, decommissioning and renewables. The current Managing Director, Jonathan McGregor, said:
“With the increases in oil prices and reduction in costs, 2017 was a much more positive year for the North Sea and it was a very positive year for Jee with a dramatic rise in engineering personnel due to our order book growth. We have seen strong growth across all our areas: integrity management, pigging and plugging and late life, but particularly in the number of design projects, which reflects the confidence the industry has in the North Sea.
“Aberdeen is still a central hub for the oil and gas industry so it is important for us to have an office base here. Moving to BlueSky’s Westpoint House has allowed us to remain in Westhill which remains a centre of excellence in the subsea oil and gas sector.”
With the continual growth, Jee requires the flexibility of the accommodation that BlueSky provides. Jonathan remarked:
“Angela and the team have made the move extremely easy for us and the facilities are great for our staff. We are also in close proximity to many of our clients.
“Aberdeen has seen a decline in the oil and gas industry over recent years, but it is essential to remember the market is always changing. There have been strong signs of improvement within the North Sea and it is important that we remain flexible as we increase our activity.”
With the lease at BlueSky, Jee will be able to maintain its focus on the demand for its services without increasing fixed costs.
