Our trade and craft people deliver our construction and maintenance projects

We think about your next job, so you don’t have to. Our engage-to-retain philosophy means that we prioritize resource planning to offer long-term or frequent work wherever possible.

Sixty-five percent of trade workers hired for our North Sea projects during 2022 were rehired having worked for us previously.

We want the best people, and we want them to keep getting better

We make sure you have all the accreditation you need to keep working as a trade and craft professional. From annual competencies to reskilling in a different trade or industry.

In a recent solar project, we employed more than 1,000 oil and gas workers and as part of the onboarding process trained them with the new skills they’d need. As a result, we’re now working with the National Center for Construction Education & Research (NCCER) to develop solar certifications for more workers from other industries.

Helping women enter trade professions

In Western Canada, we have a longstanding partnership with Women Building Futures (WBF), which helps women explore and connect to careers that pay above a living wage. This year we trained 12 apprentice pipefitters. Each had three weeks of in-class training before joining us at our Edmonton Module Yard for a week of hands-on training. Once complete, apprentices mobilized to our project sites.

In 2022, this training program resulted in us hiring nine female pipefitters. And we were also named Employer of Choice 2022 by WBF, which allows us to hire future WBF graduates, attract diverse talent, build sustainable community impact and showcase our commitment to diversity.

We offer craft training and apprenticeship programs for people to take their first steps into the industry all around the world.

At our Worley Rosenberg construction and fabrication yard in Stavanger, Norway, we’ve issued over 2,000 certificates of apprenticeship since 1980.
