Hi I am looking to work offshore I am in the process off doing all my courses, such as MIST, BOSIET etc. I have attached my cv to this email, I have plenty of experience in shot blasting and paint spraying with my panel beating trade, but i am willing to do anything offshore. I am a very physical lad who enjoys learning new skills and i am always willing to work plenty of overtime.

I was just wondering if it would be possible if you could forward me any companies looking for staff at the moment, as i am free to start at any point.

Kind regards

Christopher Aldcroft
