Shaping the future of energy – and your future too

One of humankind's biggest challenges is the need to meet the increasing energy demand more sustainably. Every business area, team, and project in Equinor plays a role in our response to this challenge, and our summer internship is no different.

Our internship offers a hands-on experience in your chosen discipline while gaining a broad understanding of our strategy and operations across oil and gas, renewables, and low carbon solutions.

Applications for our 2024 summer internship programme open 9 October and close 13 November.

Our summer internship recruitment process

Here is an outline of what you can expect from our summer internship recruitment process.

What to expect from your time with us?

You will join us on a six-week programme designed to give you the experience and skills you need in your studies and future career.

Your time will be split between working within one of our business areas, taking part in learning and development activities, and delivering a group project with several of your fellow interns (the group project does not apply to US interns). Our internship is office based, but you will have the opportunity to work flexibly between home and office if agreed with your leader.

As an Equinor intern, you can also expect the following:

Hands-on experience
You will spend roughly 80% of your internship working on tasks and projects within the discipline you’ve applied for, giving you first-hand experience of your team's strategy, processes, and culture. Your leader will be your main point of contact, ensuring that you get the most out of your time with us, but you will also be supported by other colleagues in your team.

Learning and development
You will join a series of learning sessions that provide an overview of our business and introduce you to some of the processes we use at Equinor. These will include introductions to key areas of our strategy and learning opportunities covering various professional skills that will help you in your future career. Through the learning programme, all our interns will gain a broad understanding of our entire value chain, including our strategy for oil and gas, renewables, and low carbon solutions.

Multi-disciplinary project
You will spend the remainder of your time on a group project with other students from various academic backgrounds and supported by experienced colleagues from around our business. Throughout this project, you will develop critical skills such as collaboration, leadership, communication, presentation, planning and time management.

A balanced and rewarding work culture
Our interns have the same opportunities to work flexibly as the rest of our employees, allowing you to balance work with the things that matter away from the office. We also recognize that your internship is an opportunity to build lifelong relationships and networks, and we encourage all of our interns to take advantage of this.

Get in touch

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to get in touch. Since we’re a big organisation, it will speed up the processing of your questions if you contact us through the right channels for your enquiry.
