Jee Ltd, an indepenedent multi-discipline engineering and training firm, has announced further plans for expansion to accommodate the company’s growth strategy and the creation of 150 new jobs in the UK.



The company which provides a complete range of subsea engineering expertise also announced the appointment of new board members Andrea Haywood, Finance Director, and Jenny Matthew, Director, who will help drive steady growth plans, with the aim of increasing turnover from £5million to £20million in the next 4 years.



Jee managing director, Trevor Jee said: “The Jee team, which is spread between Aberdeen and Tonbridge, near London, has already outgrown the current Aberdeen office, having doubled in size this year. As part of a carefully managed growth strategy, we have plans in place to expand the Aberdeen team into new Westhill premises and open an engineering office in Central London, with the potential of creating 40 jobs in the UK by the end of 2013 and a total of 150 UK jobs over the next 4 years.

 


 “Our biggest growth area has been in subsea projects, a large focus for 2012 has been adding to our subsea engineering team, building on the wealth of knowledge the company already possesses as our client portfolio rapidly increases in this area. This recruitment drive will carry on into 2013, allowing the Jee team to continue providing clients with the range of expert knowledge they are looking for in large and complex projects."



Mr Jee founded the subsea engineering and training firm in 1988, which remains an independent, privately-owned company.
 


“These are exciting times for Jee and attracting the right people to help grow the business is vital. The addition of Andrea Haywood and Jenny Matthew to the board, as well as Jonathan Lindsay now heading up our Aberdeen office, has made a big difference to our operational capabilities as they bring with them a wealth of experience.
 


“With our combination of engineering and training, we are also able to address the skills shortage, developing engineers from outside of the industry into subsea specialists through our conversion program, creating a bigger talent pool for this sector,” Mr Jee added.
