There are different entry level rig jobs available and some of them are described below:

Roustabouts: this is the basic level of rig job which is available. Many candidates hate this job because it's the job where candidate might have to clean the deck and make it shine. But the most important aspect of this job is that candidates are at least getting the rig job experience and this will help them in future.

Rig welders - this job is about the welding work required in the rig and due to this position only a rig can stay in one piece. It is certainly the most important job on the rig and without a rig welder the rig can't stay fit. The job requirement is not so high but the applicant must have knowledge regarding welding as this is the only thing a welder must know.

Roughnecks - it can also be said that roughneck if the glue which keeps all the rig jobs intact to each other as this job requires to see that all the machines including the driller is accurately fitted or not and other parts on the rig are working properly or not.

Dereckman - this is quite a very interesting and important job position on the rig.

Dereckmen helps to get the mud out of the rig by using a pipe which sucks the mud out of rig.

Driller - last but not the least driller is the main person on the rig who drills out the oil and this is the most important job on the rig as the main purpose of a rig is to drill out some oil.

Dear Sir/Madam, My name is Scott Roberts. I am a young 38 years of age. I live in Perth, Scotland. I am currently employed as a driver after being made redundant as a Fisheries Board Water Bailiff which I did for 10 years. My duties included patrolling and policing the North Sea and River Tay catchment area, patrolling sea in 5metre RIB boarding vessels to make sure fishing was legal. I had the powers of caution, charge and arrest. I lost my job due to a decrease in poaching activities. Prior to being a Bailiff I worked for a Perth based Construction Company as a labourer for the bricklayers and joiners which i also enjoyed. I am looking to find work as a Roustabout (or any other position you think would be suitable for me). I have my BOSIET and MIST Certificates and Offshore Medical Certificate and would be ready to start work at short notice. I believe I would be an ideal candidate as I am extremely hard working, reliable, honest, and a good time keeper with good practical hand skills. I am also a good team player with good communication skills and have a great personality. I am really keen to learn new skills and to progress in my career in the offshore industry should the opportunity arise. I thank you very much for taking time to read this and hope you consider me for a position with your company. My contact details are:-(e-mail) (home phone) +44(0)1738451974. (mobile) 07843096520
