Could an industry defining challenge be your career defining opportunity?
By 2050, we aim to become a net-zero company and deliver the energy the world needs without contributing to global warming.
It’s an ambitious goal and attracting and developing the brightest minds will be essential to our success. As a graduate at Equinor, you’ll be joining 20,000 colleagues in around 30 countries who are using their passion and creativity to help us meet this goal.
Our corporate graduate programme - A global career kick start
You've worked hard for your education, now you're ready to put your learning into action on the first step in your career. As a graduate at Equinor, that means contributing to one of the most important challenges of our time – the energy transition.
Becoming a leader in the energy transition will require ingenuity and imagination as well as technical expertise. It won't be easy, and we'll all need to perform at our best if we want to succeed. That's why we'll ensure you'll have the tools and experiences to shape your future, so you can use your passion and ability to shape ours.
Feeling supported, valued, and healthy can also have a positive impact on how you perform at work. That's why our benefits packages are designed to help you balance work and life at all stages of your career, including tools for your mental and physical health, flexible working policies and global parental leave.
Here’s an outline of what you can expect from our graduate recruitment process.
What to expect from your time with us
Our 2-year graduate programme is your chance to gain real-life experience within the energy industry.
From the start you’ll be working on assignments that put you in the middle of the action. You’ll develop and build your career through on-the job-training, tailored learning and development modules, networking and various courses offered by our Equinor university.
The programme is made up of 3–12-month rotations across functions, business areas or locations. Our graduates are permanent employees from day one, so you’ll have access to all the benefits that are available in your country of work.
When we collaborate, we are more resilient, and we achieve better results. As a graduate, that means opportunities to work with different business areas and on multi-discipline teams, learning from and being inspired by colleagues in a variety of fields.
