EMAS AMC is a contender. We are newcomers, but not inexperienced. We have almost 200 employees in Norway already, and now we need you.
A growing company
EMAS AMC is expanding, and now has almost 200 employees in Norway. This is what we want. EMAS AMC is a contender in the subsea construction and installation market. We want to take market share, piece by piece.
We are newcomers, but not inexperienced. Our technological expertise, solution-oriented, proactive approach and creativity measure up to any competitor. So do our vessels, and we are proud to work with the leading offshore construction vessels in the world.
Growth offers opportunities. EMAS AMC is a small company compared to its more established competitors. The size of the company allows our staff to see the overall picture, and to become involved in the different phases of a project. We are very conscious of the fact that every employee is unique and has an important role to play.No-one is overlooked, and we have expectations of every individual. You benefit from greater responsibility and exciting assignments.
At EMAS AMC, we are not satisfied with the status quo, nor focused on simply maintaining our current market share. We always see the glass as half-full. EMAS AMC is ambitious – we want to move onward and upward.
The key to our success
EMAS is known for its entrepreneurial focus, a key part of its identity. We are known for responding quickly to customer and project needs. We are efficiently organised, and decisions can be made quickly. This makes every day eventful and educational.
As an employee of EMAS AMC, you are the key to our success. We want to work with our clients to find new, innovative ways of overcoming challenges. Our staff is crucial in this regard.
EMAS AMC is a project organisation, and therefore has a flat management structure, both within the company and in individual projects. Every employee is closely involved in technical challenges and has close contact with specialist departments, clients and colleagues.
We are a market contender. This influences how we work. We are creative problem-solvers, and offer high levels of service. New ideas are welcome, and we learn from one another. Clients notice this. We want to build further on this foundation, helping EMAS AMC to continue to grow.
Meet our employees
We asked four of our newest colleagues why they chose EMAS AMC. Read what they said, and be inspired to join our team.
Thea Spieler (26) recently completed a Master of Science degree in marine technology. She specialised in hydrodynamics, the key to the work of the analysis department. Thea took up a full-time position with EMAS AMC in the summer of 2012, but had already established a relationship with the company through a student placement in the summer of 2011.
Why did you choose EMAS AMC?
I was offered a summer job here in 2011, which gave me an opportunity to learn about the varied opportunities and challenges offered by the company. I experienced a workplace which presents employees with interesting tasks, and received good support from inclusive, inspiring and positive colleagues. That is why I had few doubts about accepting EMAS AMC’s offer of full-time employment at the end of my studies.
What does a typical workday at EMAS AMC look like for a recent engineering graduate?
My first impression is very good. I was included in a project team straight away, and will be involved in all of the project stages from analysis and planning to completion offshore. My studies at NTNU gave me knowledge and a range of tools, and at EMAS AMC I have the opportunity to learn more about how to use those tools to support the company’s activities and value creation. Everything is in place – all I have to do is grab the opportunities on offer.
What advantages does EMAS AMC have that you would point out to others who are graduating soon?
When choosing an employer, it was important to me, as a fresh graduate, to be able to apply the knowledge I had spent so many years acquiring while it was still fresh in my mind. At EMAS AMC, I also have excellent opportunities to develop skills and work in other specialist areas if I should want to do so in future. In addition, EMAS AMC has a positive social environment, and offers good pay and conditions. Some people will also value the opportunity to work offshore, where theory is implemented in practice.
Karl H. Beck
Karl H. Beck (45) is a tender manager in the commercial department. His primary focus is on prospects in the cable segment. Although he has only been working for EMAS AMC for a short period of time, Karl has already become familiar with the company and, in his words, “I am pleased that my first impressions have been confirmed”.
Could you give us a short summary of who you are, and where you come from?
I am a naval architect, and previously worked in the shipping industry, including nine years abroad. Among other things, I worked for DNV for many years, and was posted to both Korea and Croatia. The last few years, I worked for a smaller consultancy, NMS, where I led the projects department for new vessel builds for four years. So, I have a fair amount of technical, social and cultural experience.
Why did you choose to join EMAS AMC?
I wanted to try something a little different, and to tackle new challenges in the offshore industry, so I knew what I was looking for. EMAS AMC seemed to me to be a forward-looking, ambitious organisation of the right size, which offered substantial personal development opportunities. When I heard that they were investing heavily in new, state-of-the-art vessels, I was sold. In addition, the company balances size with expertise. It is a respected company, not too bureaucratic, and individuals are recognised. Overall, it seemed to be a positive change of course.
What distinguishes this company from your previous employers?
I have worked for other good companies before, but in some larger companies, it is perhaps a little too easy to disappear in the crowd. At EMAS AMC, there is room for individuality – the company combines space to develop with serious professionalism and a determination to achieve its goals. The company is expanding, and therefore in a unique learning and development situation. At the same time, EMAS AMC can trace its roots back to the very start of Norway’s petroleum adventure. I feel that we are able to adapt to new needs, and that decisions can be made quickly. All of this helps to create an exciting workplace.
Marius S. Grønseth
Marius S. Grønseth (33) is one of the company’s many cycling enthusiasts. He is a chartered engineer, and specialised in geomatics at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences in Ås, Norway. At EMAS AMC, he has been presented with many technical challenges in the company’s most rapidly growing business segment – SURF.
What did you do before joining EMAS AMC?
I worked for the Skanska construction group for a total of eight years, both as a project engineer and as a department head. I also spent one year working as a project manager for iSurvey. It is safe to say that I am very familiar with both project organisations and entrepreneurship – knowledge which I have found very useful here.
Why did you choose to join EMAS AMC?
There were several deciding factors. I wanted to work even more on a project basis and operationally, but at the same time develop professionally. Some contacts put me in touch with EMAS AMC, and that shifted the process from the thinking stage to realisation. I also learned about the company from colleagues who had previously worked for Norwegian Contractors, and from current EMAS AMC employees. All in all, a combination of factors applied.
What does your job entail, and what challenges are you given?
I work primarily on survey-related issues in the SURF sector. I am following up several ongoing projects, including offshore, and I will also begin working on tenders soon. This week, I was given the opportunity to represent the company in a project context. This illustrates the breadth of the tasks an engineer may work on and be asked to take on at EMAS AMC.
