Spinnaker Communications- Oilennium Ltd, provider of training programs for the international oil and gas industry, announced the appointment of five full-time graduate trainees.

 

The announcement coincides with the launch of the company's new Graduate Training Program.  The new employees were hired as a result of a recruitment drive to attract dynamic recent graduates seeking to put their design, communication and IT skills to work on behalf of the company's growing portfolio of customers in the international oil and gas and maritime industries.  During the past year, Oilennium was retained by a number of new clients requiring both modular and customized online learning programs designed to meet their specific needs.  "To ensure that our customers would continue to receive effective, world class eLearning programs, we knew we would have to gear up by recruiting a fresh team of highly motivated, talented graduates to train as instructional designers, and to support our ever-expanding "Learning Management System," said Samantha O'Hara, General Manager of Oilennium. 

 

The group is the first to benefit from Oilennium's new Graduate Training Program, which trains employees in specific aspects of Oilennium's specialist approach to developing eLearning courses.  The Instructional Designer traineesare currently taking part in a three-month program delivered by PJ Rushmere,Training Co-ordinator for Oilennium. By the end of the program, they will have benefitted from courses in Oilennium Standards, technical development, scriptwriting, reviewing and proofreading, specialized publishing and Total Quality Management. Upon successful completion of the program, each Trainee Instructional Designer will be assigned to an experienced Instructional Designer to mentor as they begin developing eLearning courses. Having boosted its employment by 25%, the move is a significant investment for Oilennium, which now employs 25. "With the added support of the graduates, the pace at which we progress projects will increase, and customer service will be further enhanced," said O'Hara.  "Looking ahead, we hope to sponsor another campaign to recruit Graduate Trainees during Q2 and Q3 as our growth continues."The new employees are based at the company's headquarters in Loddon, Norfolk, England.
