What should you expect from your time with us?

You will join us on a six-week programme (Norway and UK) 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 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.

Project work
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, communication, presentation, planning and time management.
