The industry offers far more than just working a rig – with over 300,000 UK jobs supported by oil and gas production, a range of opportunities are available, including the potential for travel
Exploring oil and gas fields, extracting natural resources, and refining them so that they are useable is one of the biggest industries in the world – as well as being among the most controversial due to its environmental impact.
Yet oil and gas remain essential for the manufacture of countless everyday products as well as for fuelling vehicles, heating buildings and producing electricity. What’s more, there are many different career paths to choose from.
According to MyOilandGasCareer.com, over the next few years there will be 10,000 new entrants to this UK sector, with just less than half (4,500) of them expected to work in roles that don’t currently exist.
Oil and gas careers
You’ll find some of the world’s largest and most recognisable multinational companies in the oil and gas industry, such as BP, Chevron, ExxonMobil, TOTAL and Shell, along with many smaller organisations.
In fact, according to the trade association Oil & Gas UK (OGUK), the industry, along with its far-reaching supply chain, is spread across Britain. So whether you want to work offshore on an oil rig or in an office at a key energy hub (such as in the South East or North West of England), there’s plenty of choice.
From engineers and geologists to office-based roles in accounting and human resources (HR), employers require graduates with varying interests and from many different academic backgrounds.
For example, you could be a chef supporting the workforce on an oil rig, a chemist undertaking research and development, an environmental adviser ensuring that standards are met, or a subsea engineer designing and installing underwater equipment.
Alternatively, you could work on sustainable energy futures, climate change and international development for an energy giant such as Scottish Power.
