2H Offshore Summer Placement 2024

Type: Early Careers Programme
Region: South East

2H Offshore is a global engineering contractor specialising in the design, engineering and integrity management of offshore structures, topsides facilities, subsea components and riser and conductor systems for the offshore renewables and oil and gas sectors. Both market sectors require similar engineering skill sets, and our breadth of experience in offshore structures and environments allows us to provide expertise at all stages of a project: feasibility and concept design, detailed design, procurement management, fabrication support, installation support, monitoring, integrity management, asset life extension and decommissioning.

2H Offshore are looking to add a Summer Placement Student to their expanding teams in Woking. The Placement Student will have an interest in Structural Design and Engineering. The work will initially involve system design, structural and dynamic analysis of offshore structures and systems, with wider exposure to fabrication, installation and integrity management.

2H offers a vibrant and stimulating work environment where technical excellence, operational delivery, continuous improvement and teamwork are highly regarded. There is also plenty of opportunity for career development and broadening your horizons into different areas of engineering within 2H’s business and the wider Acteon Group.
