Energy Voice | Petrofac looks to ‘enhance workforce’ with new global talent

Oil service firm Petrofac has announced its intention to “enhance its already diverse workforce” by encouraging graduates from across the globe.

The international firm, who hold a base in Aberdeen, said the search for talent from across the world is part of its “commitment” to supporting young talent.

Petrofac has hired 1,500 graduates since starting the programme in 2004.

The firm said that successful applicants will have the opportunity to “develop skills” through on-the-job experience across a four-year programme.

Group chief executive Ayman Asfari said: “Our global workforce comprises more than 80 nationalities across 30 countries. We are a people business, so our talent makes us who we are and sets us apart from our competition.

“The entire oil and gas industry is working hard to reverse a historical gender imbalance and skills gap.

“At Petrofac we are committed to playing our part by ensuring our graduate programme embraces diversity of ethnicity, nationality and gender.

“The combination of structured learning and on-the-job training in live project environments will give candidates excellent exposure to the business and stand them in good stead for their future development in the company.

“I look forward to welcoming the next generation of talent into the business later this year and watching their progression.”

Applications are now open and graduates have until Monday 25 February 2019.
