Roustabout or Floorhand

by Stephen Van Zyl
(Cape Town, South Africa)

I have been trying for the last three years to obtain employment on an oil rig. I have spent so much money on all the places that offer to find jobs for me, but to no avail.


I have completed all my relevant safety courses and have medical certificates. I have also completed courses in Rope access, trouble shooting for cranes, I have my crane licence. I have also completed various other courses in the hope that I would obtain employment.

I am really keen to obtain employment on a rig and I do not mind traveling, I would appreciate any advise or help to obtain my goal.

I am very good with my hands and I think outside the box, that is why I feel this type of work would suite me.
