Field Operator

"I’d never had any experience on an oilfield before, so it's been really exciting for me to learn so many new things in a new environment. I've been able to draw on the discipline and integrity that you learn in the military to help me in my new career." - Jim, Warehouseman and US Army Veteran

Has your military career given you experience of working with different tools in the field? Do you have a track record of safely operating, maintaining and performing minor repairs on equipment as part of an operations team? Are you ready for a new challenge in a global organization working with cutting-edge technology? Do you relish the opportunity to make a difference in a highly competitive industry sector?

If so, joining Baker Hughes as a Field Operator could be the perfect opportunity for you to move into the civilian sector while retaining the excitement of working in the field.

It’s a challenging role: sometimes you’ll be working outside in extreme hot and cold conditions and at times you’ll be on call 24 hours a day. You’ll be delivering products, services, tools and equipment between different sites, as well as loading and unloading vehicles, helping to rig up equipment, maintaining relevant logs and records. A hands-on and highly professional approach is essential to deliver exceptional service to our external and internal customers at all times.

If you’re considering moving into the civilian sector, we believe there is no better place than Baker Hughes to make the transition from a military career. We are a global leader in oilfield and gas services. That means you’ll benefit from the highest quality industry training, flexible working practices, travel and career development opportunities, and a culture based on our core values of integrity, teamwork, performance and learning. It’s a fast-paced and results-driven working environment in which team players and self-starters can excel.

You’ll possess a High School diploma or equivalent; candidates with a Class A CDL (Commercial Drivers License) and Hazardous Materials (HazMat) Endorsement will have an advantage. Preferred candidates will also have heavy equipment/oilfield equipment operating experience and/or proven ability to work with a variety of hand tools.
