Field Ready is the trading name of Getenergy Field Ready Limited (a UK company based near Oxford, United Kingdom). We form part of the Getenergy group.
Since 2004, Getenergy has pioneered new approaches to bringing together providers of education and training with industry on a global basis, for the purpose of developing employable national workforces.
We started life focused on the energy industry but soon realised that the techniques and networks we were building could positively impact the lives of people in a wide range of careers in many countries. We now work across many sectors including food processing, transport and logistics, IT and banking.
In 2015, with the help of our global community, we launched a pilot employability programme in Takoradi, Ghana. We wanted to see what it would take to produce a small group of highly employable graduates from a state technical university.
It was clear that they needed additional support on Applied Personal Skills, Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE) training, applied technical skills and field experience. So, we assembled an Alliance of companies and government organisations to help. Within 12 months of graduating, all of the candidates were employed – many with glowing references and bright careers ahead of them.
Since then, we have expanded and further improved our programmes and business model. We are now active in more countries, worked with many more universities and colleges and are evolving into The Employability Platform.
We are always striving to reach more people, to help more companies find great people and support governments to ensure inward investment brings sustainable value to citizens and economies.
