I have worked for the Wellwise Group for the last 16 months and found them to be the best agency I have ever worked for.

Wellwise are very quick to respond with any query I may have whether it is invoicing, flight times, location, meet and greet etc etc etc!! I can pick up the phone anytime and get the answer I am looking for.

Gary Duthie
Well Services Supervisor

Wellwise is a part of my life - I have worked with Wellwise since day one and have seen the company grow, as I have grown with them.

Paul Goodwin
Well Test Supervisor

Communication with operational management has become easy with access to them through the most professional, polite and cheery receptionists one possibly could hope to find on the other end of the phone.

Ian Kirkland
Well Test Supervisor

I have worked for the Wellwise Group for the best part of 14 years. I value the support that is always there; I value their friendship and I look forward to the future and what it will offer as Wellwise continues to expand.

Paul A. Goodwin
Well Test Supervisor

One of the main reasons I like working for Wellwise is the support you are given from the office. I receive a full job brief before travelling and they are always on the other end of the phone if you need anything day or night.

Bernard Murphy
Slickline Supervisor

As a consultant to any company, its difficult to grasp the workloads, efforts or agendas of the company, but with Wellwise, one gets the impression of proactivity, not only as a competitor in the agency world but as a company striving for professional respect amongst its clients.

Ian R. Kirkland
Well Test Supervisor

Unlike other agencies we do not post available jobs because of the fast turnover of our business. New jobs are available daily so register with us to ensure you are first to hear of the latest assignments and are ready to travel.

Glenn Durrant
Wellwise Group Operations Manager

I have worked in Africa, Hungary, Poland, Israel, France, Holland, Aberdeen, and locally. These locations provided land work and offshore work, on HPHT gas & oil wells & H2S wells, for a variety of clients including Expro North Sea and Schlumberger.

Wellwise Competency Scheme Developments – Competency Fast Track

Jun 08, 2020

We have undertaken a review of our current route to competency and have been developing a “Fast Track” for experienced candidates.  In reality what this means is by combining a candidate’s historic records and past achievements we can help them to the finishing line quicker.

It is no secret our industry continues to have a fragmented approach regarding the standardisation of qualifications in the service sector. The SQA (Scottish Qualifications Authority) approved Wellwise Group Competency Award has for some time addressed this issue. On completion of the scheme candidates have the comfort of knowing their professional credentials are underpinned by a formal qualification. However there has been an increasing need to recognise past achievements and qualifications and find a method to credit these towards gaining recognition of competence in your core discipline.   

We understand the frustration of experienced contractors who have various historic records and certification that until now could not be used as credit towards an overall certificate of competence - this is often termed “grandfathers rights”.  WWG have now developed a procedure to take these records and experience into account and reduce the number of submissions required to achieve the competence certification.

On completion of an initial review, if the candidate has met the threshold of the evaluation process they will be invited to undertake “Competency Fast Track”.

Competency Fast Track reduces the number of submissions required by as much as 50% in some cases, as a result the route to gaining an industry recognised and standardised qualification has been made less onerous.

For those who do not meet the criteria for Fast Track we will continue to offer the current version of the scheme.

This Fast Track version of our scheme is still under development, but will be available later this year. If you are interested in taking this route once it is launched, please let us know.
