Hiretech’s Highly Commended Apprentice

Hiretech is celebrating the success of apprentice James Farquhar, who has been awarded a Highly Commended accolade by the judging panel at the recent prestigious Press and Journal Gold Awards.

James, aged 19, joined Hiretech in August 2014 and has since been undertaking an HNC in Engineering at North East Scotland College in Fraserburgh. Now in his 4th year as an apprentice Maintenance Technician, James’ main duties include the preparation and maintenance of equipment prior to mobilising for client offshore hire.

James has demonstrated a real passion for his job and a willingness to learn, continuously developing his knowledge and abilities. These traits underpinned his nomination for the Apprentice Award, and were reflected in the comments received from the award judging panel.

James, who was unable to attend the awards ceremony due to undertaking his first global offshore project, was pleased to learn of his achievement, commenting, “I’m thrilled to receive a Highly Commended award, it means a lot to me and recognises what I have accomplished during my apprenticeship.  It is also recognition for the team that has mentored me throughout my apprenticeship and got me to the stage I am today. I very much look forward to progressing in my role and developing my career in the industry”.

Managing Director at Hiretech, Andy Buchan, added, “James has demonstrated a real commitment to both his college studies and his working role at Hiretech.  He is a respected team player who works hard to turn around jobs efficiently and effectively, bringing youth and enthusiasm to the team. His positive approach and determination to learn were the key reasons he was nominated for this award.  I’m delighted for James that his efforts have been recognised at this level.”

Hiretech Limited is a leading independent equipment rental, sales, service and maintenance company offering pumping spreads, powered umbilical reels, hydraulic power packs and supporting equipment to the global energy market.

Pumping Spread Supports Pipeline Pigging and Testing Project in West Africa
