Equinor offers both onshore and offshore apprenticeships. If you find an apprenticeship that is suited for you, simply send your application electronically.
We require good grades and a good school attendance record. You must have an approved learning process from VG2 or VG3. We are looking for individuals who are conscientious and work well in teams.
If you are offered an apprenticeship with Equinor, a written training contract will be set up between you, the company and the county authority (Fylkeskommunen). You will get an instructor who, together with the technical supervisor, will be responsible for the training. The instructor will help you get acquainted with the work environment and colleagues.
Remember – we are looking for apprentices that take an active part both socially and professionally. Practical work combined with theoretical understanding is essential to making the apprenticeship successful.
Please complete our digital application form, enclosing all relevant documents, such as your CV and transcript of grades. When we have received your application, a confirmation will be sent to your provided email address.
Candidates invited to the recruitment day will be asked to join us virtually. The recruitment days will take place during week 9 and 10.
Apprenticeship employment offer letters will be sent out after the recruitment days – from mid-March and onwards. Candidates that do not make it through the screening will get information about this on an ongoing basis through the whole recruitment process.

Accommodation and pay
If you qualify for student grants for living away from home, we will provide you with accommodation. Apprentices will be compensated based on a standard pay scale.
Upon completed apprenticeship you may apply for a job at Equinor, but we do not guarantee that you will get one. That is because we recruit more apprentices than the company itself needs, thus giving more people the opportunity to qualify for a certificate of apprenticeship.
Our apprentices work within different disciplines throughout the company:
