Take your work worldwide
The energy sector is a source of multiple opportunities to make your mark on a global stage.
Energy is an integral part of the modern world. It has become a key topic at the forefront of both the public and political agenda, especially in relation to the ever-growing global demand for energy resources and the rising importance of climate change. The energy sector includes:
- oil and gas
- renewables and cleantech.
There are many opportunities within the sector, including marketing, sales, business development, management consultancy and operations. A proven interest and knowledge of the energy industry are key prerequisites. When recruiting, energy companies look for specific experience and skills. Strong relevant functional experience is important, as is international experience and a global mindset. Softer skills such as strong communication skills, the ability to work in a diverse team and evidence of leadership are essential.
Oil and gas
This sector includes the global processes of exploration, extraction, refining, transporting (i.e. tankers and pipelines) and marketing of the products. The oil and gas sector is divided into three areas: upstream, midstream and downstream. A science- or engineering-related degree can be an advantage for some.
This sector includes companies that purchase and redistribute resources such as electricity, water and gas. It also includes companies that are responsible for power generation and infrastructure.
Renewables and cleantech
Renewable energy is generated from natural resources such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides and geothermal heat, which are naturally replenished. Renewable energy technologies range from solar power, wind power, hydroelectricity/micro hydro to biomass and biofuels for transportation.
