Join our graduate programme in Sharjah and embark on an exciting and diverse career path, with plenty of opportunities to develop your skills, expertise and experience across the Middle East. You will play a key role in the delivery of engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning projects, including mega-projects, onshore and offshore.

Our early career programme is run through the Petrofac Academy, our in-house centre of excellence for employee development. With structured technical training in your chosen discipline you will also develop your skills through on-the-job training (including site experience), working alongside engineers and other functions on live projects with real responsibility.

At Petrofac, everyone supports your growth and development within the organisation to help you get to where you want to be. Once you demonstrate your drive, dedication, and ability to deliver, you soon become an integral part of the team.”
