What do field specialists do?
Field specialists are important to the success of our operations. Performing skilled technical services, usually at the wellsite, they operate the tools and technologies that deliver solutions to our customers. Field specialists support our field engineers and are required to perform complex tasks like preparing equipment and ensuring that activities are safe, efficient, and carried out as quickly as possible. This is a challenging hands-on job. You will need to be prepared to work outdoors and cope with sometimes harsh and demanding conditions.
What do we look for?
To be considered for the field specialist development opportunity, you must have completed a 2-to-3-year qualification in a technical or engineering-related subject.
