Our global operations involve us in every aspect of oil and gas recovery, ranging from reservoir consultancy and software to field development and management services.
Activities stretch from well construction – incorporating drilling services, drill bits and completions – to well production, where we provide customers with integrated artificial lift and pressure pumping solutions, and production optimization chemicals.
We offer two distinct routes for graduates in this area:
Who is eligible?
If you are looking for an unconventional job where you have the opportunity to get your hands dirty, and you have or expect to complete a 4-year technical degree, Master’s or PhD in an engineering or engineering-related subject, applied sciences , geology, mathematics or physics, field engineering could be the role for you.
What will I do?
Enter our organization directly as a field engineer and, following early career training, you will become a jobsite leader, responsible for designing, executing and evaluating wellsite operations.
Performance is rewarded with rapid advancement and ultimately, you will represent our company by interacting with customers and delivering front line technical services and solutions across our drilling, evaluation, completion, and production technologies.
These are crucially important hands-on roles, often outdoors and in demanding or harsh conditions—offshore on a North Sea oil rig or in the desert in West Africa — and when at the rigsite you'll be expected to work shifts (day or night). You may also be required to work weekends and public holidays, as business needs dictate.

Who is eligible?
If you are mechanically minded, good with your hands, and want to work outside, this could be the opportunity for you. In addition to fluency in English and the legal right to work in the country where you have applied, you will need to have graduated with a qualification in a technical or engineering-related subject within the past 24 months.
What will I do?
You will receive all the training you need to be successful in the field, but you must be prepared to work, frequently for long hours, outdoors in harsh conditions, and often in remote locations. You will perform a vital role, usually at the wellsite, operating the tools and technologies that deliver solutions to our customers. You will be expected to assemble, disassemble, operate and maintain a variety of equipment, from drill bits to surface cementing gear and rotary steerable systems. This is a skilled, challenging, hands-on job because you will be responsible for ensuring that operations are safe, accurate, and carried out in an efficient manner.
Customers expect our services 24 hours-a-day all year round, with complex operations lasting several days. You should be prepared to work in all types of weather and in demanding conditions, both on- and offshore. You will sometimes need to be on site through the night as well as weekends and holidays. This role mentally and physically demanding, but it is well rewarded and full of variety.
