Field engineers Graduate Programme 2012
What you need
Our field engineers deliver front-line technical services and solutions across our drilling, evaluation, completion, and production technologies. These are 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 – so you need to learn a range of tasks. Ultimately, you will be responsible for designing, executing and evaluating wellsite operations.
For field engineer roles, we are typically seeking people who:
have completed a four-year technical degree or Master’s within the past 24 months in:
are fluent in English (Level 5 on a global English test)
have at least three of the following
have the legal right to work in the country in which you apply
We’re looking for people who are motivated and persistent, as well as resilient and adaptable. You will also need to show creative problem-solving and strong communication and interpersonal skills.
Depending on your geographic location, there may be certain specific employment requirements, which will be explained during the application process.
Field engineers are job-site leaders so our success depends on you. You will represent our company so you need a combination of application knowledge, operational know-how, and experience, enabling you to deliver service and maintain our reputation as a leading global oilfield services company.
Our three-year LEAD program offers a framework for you to Learn, Excel, Achieve and Develop. This program will help you quickly become competent with our technologies and processes, enabling potentially rapid career progression through a sequence of competency-based development steps.
LEAD, which includes theoretical and hands-on learning, is flexible and adaptable to different job requirements and work environments. There are development programs in a range of disciplines, including
Developmental activities initially will focus on acquiring basic knowledge while working under supervision within one product line and will progress to working unsupervised with a broadening scope of knowledge and skills.
Field engineers deliver services and information to help our clients locate, evaluate, and produce oil and gas reservoirs more efficiently. There is no doubt that the job is demanding, mentally and physically, especially in the early part of your career when it is field-focused.
In the longer term, once you have achieved the levels of competence we expect, we can offer you the opportunity to progress into a variety of leadership roles. You may elect to stay and build your career in the field or you can choose to work in operations management or move into product development, sales, or another business support position.
Shortly after completing your fixed-step training requirements, you’ll be invited to participate in a formal career development discussion with regional management and human resources personnel. This discussion will help to guide you in achieving your personal career goals.
