Additional Information

An Aberdeen sub sea engineering firm is recruiting more than 100 staff in Aberdeen, it has been announced. Acergy UK Ltd wants to create the engineering and administration positions over the next two years. The company, which currently employs around 500 at its base in Bucksburn, is moving and expanding into Westhill Business Park. Building work at the 17-acre site is planned to begin in October, with entry in late 2007. The specially designed campus will have a capacity for 650 people, with a further option to extend the premises to house 800 personnel. Representatives of the company believe that the establishment of the new campus in Aberdeen sends a clear message of Acergy's strategic intent to invest in the future of Scotland's economy and its skilled workforce.
