I have a Bachelor Degree in Naval Architecture from the University of Split 2012. My main topics are Mechanical, Naval and Petroleum area. I am available immediately.

I`m looking for an Entry Level position  which would meet my technical skills and qualifications offshore-North Sea.

I would like to add a few additional information and to tell you more about myself .Since August 2012 I have been working with my Mentor (Ole Jørgen Johansen -Statoil Project Manager - Åsgard Subsea Compression Project)on a Subsea Technologies Manual . I am still in close cooperation with Mr. Johansen constantly improving the Manual as my understanding of Subsea Technologies is getting better.

I got in contact with Mr Johansen in August 2012 since I found the world of Subsea Developments very interesting and the subject was not lectured at my University.My mentor has introduced me to many aspects within Subsea Technologies and our cooperation is still ongoing. I have in addition successfully completedthe OLF Subsea 1 - Subsea Basic Course.

My type of attitude is professional, mature, can-do and getting-things-done. I am social and have a highly developed social intelligence.I am PC proficient, fluent in English and currently learning Norwegian online .Once in Norway,determined to take the course of Norwegian language ASAP. If I would become your choice, you would get a man with Norwegian patience, southern charm and temperament and German accuracy and discipline.

Financing studies is difficult in Croatia if you do not have rich parents.During my studies I had full time jobs at nights in order to finance my studies. This shows my determination and endurance when I have set me a goal. I always accomplish my goals and go the extra mile when required.

Although I have recently graduated, you will find 9 years of my total working experience in demanding jobs.As a Casino supervisor I have a lot of experience in handling both own staff and customers in a professional way.Conflict handling in a positive way and interacting well with people is a key to succeed within any organization.

SKILLS: • Specialized in Subsea,Naval,Mechanical and Petroleum area • Providing universal leadership & supervision/inspection skills • Familiarized with mechanics of materials/steel and welding technologies • Fluent in English (perfect understanding, writing and speaking) • Wide use of Windows OS,Microsoft Word ,PowerPoint & Excel, mail & internet resources • 9 years of working experience • Immediate availability, happy to work long-term • Excellent communication and team working skills • A can-do and getting-things-done attitude • Thinking out of the box (not just solving known problems) • Ability to think on their feet (not just memorize answers) • Problem-solving skills (not just academic) • Establishing great interpersonal connections to all people • Initiative and personal responsibility
