Project management

Our operations literally span the globe and, wherever you work, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to learn, develop and build the skills needed for your future and ours
Our business is the exploration, production, refining, trading and distribution of energy. Whatever the task, our project managers take the lead at all stages of the project lifecycle across the globe.
 

Whether it’s a major offshore exploration project or a key refining improvement programme, our project managers take the lead at all stages of the project lifecycle.

 

As one of our project managers, you’ll lead a multi-disciplinary project team accountable for the planning, design, procurement, construction and commissioning phases. Safety and efficiency are our watchwords, and you’ll be expected to deliver against health, safety, security and environment; cost; schedule; quality; and operability targets. Creating the project execution plan, evaluating and managing project risk and contingency, championing best project practice and managing third-party engineering and construction resources – all could be part of your unusually broad remit.

 

These roles typically attract seasoned professionals with a relevant degree, and ideally a project management qualification, who have a clear track record of delivery. We look for experience in both the analysis and execution phases of projects. Outstanding technical and team leadership qualities, along with strong networking and relationship-building skills, need to be combined with exceptional knowledge of safety technologies.
