We invite applications for a seismic survey in New Zealand waters, for the first quarter of 2014. Please specify your availability.

Positions: 2 x MMOs & 2 x PAM operators
Platform: seismic vessel
Duration: 5/7 week rotations (tbc)
Location: New Zealand
Subject to suitable qualifications and experience, work is typically awarded on a first-come-first-served basis. Due to volume of recruitment mail, we are unable to respond to all applicants, sorry, so please do not expect an acknowledgement. We also cannot respond to specific questions about contracts, as this information is reserved for successful applicants only. Please apply by email only to firstname.lastname@example.org; recruitment enquiries to other OSC email addresses will be deleted.
Please feel free to circulate this information amongst colleagues looking for work. If the applicant is not already on our database, we will require a CV (Word format) that includes, inter alia, a current phone number, with copies (ideally JPEGs) of offshore survival and medical certs including any vaccinations (all of which should be listed on CVs along with expiry details for quick reference), passport, any resident permit(s), any visa(s), driver’s licence(s), and degree certs. Note that only a CV is required in the first instant for short-listing candidates, so the rest is optional. Clients are increasingly requesting evidence of any science/engineering degrees (e.g. marine biology, oceanography, acoustics, signal processing), so be prepared to follow up immediately with necessary documents in the event that you receive a phone call. If you’ve provided documents previously, rest assured they are already on file and you should not resend them; be aware that when the same applicants regularly bombard us with the same attached documents, we have no choice but to delete their emails as they otherwise clog up our inbox/server; however, we do encourage all applicants to send us updated CVs or replacement scans for expired offshore survival/medical certs, or simply contact us to provide an update on your availability.
