Oil and gas training specialist RelyOn Nutec has made two new director appointments in Aberdeen.
Iain Taylor, formerly global sales manager, has been promoted to UK commercial director at RelyOn Nutec Digital.
Meanwhile Alan McIntyre, who was previously operations manager in crisis management, becomes director for managed services and consultancy.
The company said its expanded digital offering represents moves to diversify in recent years.
Mr Taylor said: “We are focussed on digitising our core business so we are in a strong position to support our customers through this pandemic and beyond, to oversee our core customer’s energy transition and to expand further into industries beyond oil and gas.
“By utilising digital technologies, we are able to deliver greater time and cost savings to our clients by offering both eLearning and blended training options. However, we deliver for competency and not just for certification, and therefore practical training remains essential to our training delivery.”
RelyOn Nutec, formerly Falck Safety Services, has cut a third of its staff in Aberdeen and Teesside since the start of the downturn, from 90 down to 56.
They make up just two of 33 training centres globally.
Mr McIntyre has spent his career in emergency response and health and safety training.
He added: “Our specialist consultants are experts in their subject matter having worked with key customers in the oil and gas industry for decades.
“Those skills are transferrable so moving forward, we are looking to diversify the client base to support other high-risk industries such as renewables, maritime, petrochemical and more. We also want to leverage existing relationships globally to attract new business to the UK facilities.”
