Darren's story

When I started working for Fugro Middle East as a trainee ROV Pilot, I was provided with a career structure and mentoring which would often push me out of my comfort zone but I was also given opportunities to prove my capabilities. I worked my way up through the ranks and now I the ROV Offshore Vessel Manager and also responsible for the training of new ROV pilot technicians.

A typical day offshore will start before 6am and finish around midnight once the reporting has been completed.

Never be afraid to test yourself.

The only bad decision is no decision at all.
