2019 programme

I joined Field Ready right after I graduated from university. I had to move to another city (Nampula), so that I could be part of the course that Field Ready was offering. At the beginning it was not easy for me, but I did my best and I was always focused on what was my main goal when I joined the program – “to obtain skills and experiences”. For nine months I had the opportunity to obtain skills that helped me to have a closer and clearer vision of what the work environment really is within large companies, something that helped me a lot, especially in the selection and interview process for the company in which I currently work at. I currently work in the supply chain management division of BP Mozambique and feel professionally fulfilled. I am sure that I have the necessary skills to continue to develop my career and become a role model for many people around me.

I was delighted when I got the opportunity to be part of the selected few to join the Field Ready programme. The programme helps train graduates with the best of practical, technical and hands on skills in electrical and mechanical engineering and HSE. The training does not only give you technical knowledge but also helps to structure and nurture you to ensure you are ready for any challenges that comes with approaching the job market. Since graduating from the programme, I worked in the energy sector with a company called Baker Hughes as a field specialist. I also had the opportunity to work offshore on Maersk Venturer which helped me gain a lot of experience in the oil industry as well. Now, I am a flight operator and an air traffic controller at Flyzipline International and still looking forward to challenging myself in other fields as far as there is an opportunity to grow and improve.

Building a strong and resilient attitude is a tool that everyone should have. This is what Field Ready is all about. The entire program was focused on preparing an individual to become self-sufficient by taking control of their own destiny. Though my training was mostly focused on oil and gas, I can certainly say that the soft skills component of the programme was dead on, as it has assisted me in my recent employment working in an office on tax and statutory issues. Field Ready not only trains you, but also protects your job search competitiveness by offering CV writing advice and interview coaching. Because of the richness of my CV, I was able to get my current position without an interview. I am currently employed as an Electrical Engineer and Office Support Assistant with Radial Circle GJV Ltd, a marine, and aviation services company established in Ghana with headquarters in Nigeria. The installation of a Collision Avoidance System on FPSO KNK is our current project in Ghana.
