You’ll also have the advantage of personal development programmes to build up your interpersonal and leadership skills.

Crucially, you’ll make a real contribution from day one through hands-on work experience projects that broaden your professional experience and knowledge of Petrofac. We’ll match you with an expert as a mentor to provide day-to-day support.
