Schlumberger is the world’s largest oilfield services company. Working globally—often in remote and challenging locations—we invent, design, engineer, and apply technology to help our customers find and produce oil and gas safely and efficiently.
We employ approximately 100,000 people of more than 140 nationalities working in approximately 85 countries. Schlumberger does not have a 'nationality' which describes its culture, but operates in a truly global fashion throughout the world.
Far from joining a dying industry, technology is ensuring that hydrocarbon resources will be extended, that the amounts recovered will increase and the challenges the technology represents will remain as exciting as ever.
We are the world’s leading provider of technology for reservoir characterization, drilling, production, and processing to a global energy industry.
One of our greatest strengths is the diversity of our workforce, with men and women of many nationalities and backgrounds working together and sharing common objectives. As a company, we encourage fair employment practices worldwide and offer equal opportunities to all our employees. We also try to take family considerations into account in any decisions about personnel matters or assignments.
We've developed a Global Stewardship framework that is focused on issues of global concern. We believe that, through thought leadership and our own best practices, we can make a difference in six priority areas: climate change, environment, driving safety, malaria prevention, HIV/AIDS awareness and education.
We believe that high-quality training is fundamental to both your success and the success of our business. When you join Schlumberger as a trainee, you'll initially follow a structured development program which lasts around three years. No matter what your background, we ensure you have the right training to develop quickly and advance in your role. The program blends technical, safety, personal development, business and managerial courses, and on-the-job validated training courses.

Depending on which area of the business you are working in it will differ. However, Schlumberger lifestyle certainly is not for everyone! In any job, there can be long hours, sometimes away from home. If you are a field engineer or specialist, you will be away from home a lot. No matter where you are, there is always pressure to perform!
