Career development

Where you are our best asset.

In our business, people make the difference.

We’ll help you take responsibility for your career progression, to ensure you achieve your development goals.

We’ll support you with first-class training programmes, work experience, tools and technologies, and the opportunity to work with, and learn from, some of the best professionals in the industry.

Whether you want to progress further in your own discipline, change the direction of your career or experience life in Malaysia, the UK, Mexico or any of our other international locations, the opportunities in Petrofac are there for you.

Our industry is a challenging place to work, but we know that we can only grow as a business by growing the skills of our people. 

The Petrofac Academy

The Petrofac Academy is our in-house centre of excellence for employee development.

We’re committed to ensuring our employees receive the right personal development, technical training and career support so that we can provide for a succession of home-grown talent who have been trained the Petrofac way.

The Academy serves to design and implement training programmes, systems and procedures across our global operations. It offers a broad range of career development initiatives, including graduate and leadership programmes:

Graduate programme

Our programme offers newly-qualified graduates the experience, training and development they need to accelerate their career and develop their full potential.

Through the Academy, our graduates benefit from a detailed induction, technical and on-the-job training, as well as a mentor and personal development courses.

Petrofac Pathway

Our talent management processes identify individuals with the potential to fill key roles and become the business leaders of the future.

The Petrofac Pathway programme provides development for a range of managerial roles – from supervisors to senior leadership – to develop effective management and leadership capability across the organisation to protect our current and future business.

Annual Leadership Conference

More than 100 of our most senior managers come together annually for our leadership conference to review and set strategy, share best practice and strengthen relationships and teamwork.

Employee development

We build development programmes to ensure all our employees have the technical skills and can demonstrate competence in their role.  Our growing e-learning capability allows employees to develop and improve their technical and soft skill competencies online.

We want to employ the best talent. In return, we’ll commit to your long-term development. We have an engaged and culturally diverse global workforce of around 9,400 people, representing more than 80 different nationalities, going that little bit further, every day.

So come and join us.
