Marine Section Leader
Can you describe the Seadrill culture?
Everyone is committed to safety as a priority on operations, and has the full support of onshore and offshore management to achieve that. There’s an open line of communication with our management team. The company is very focused on our wellbeing, too.
What kind of opportunities are there for progression?
I’d like to continue to gain experience in my current role to become an Offshore Installation Manager with Seadrill. I joined Seadrill to build a career, and since I’ve been here I’ve had great support from all my supervisors. They’ve mentored me so I can get to where I am now, and have put me forward to participate in training.
What are the people like at Seadrill?
The rigs I’ve worked on at Seadrill have a great atmosphere; people try to socialize after working hours. It could be a work-out in the gym or watching a soccer game on TV. On Sevan Brazil, we have a weekly barbecue for Seadrill people, the Client and other third parties on board.
What would you say to someone thinking about a career with Seadrill?
If you work hard, are loyal to the company and are safety-focused, there will be opportunities for you. It’s a challenging environment, but you’ll be working in a young fleet with the newest equipment and Seadrill will always invest in your training.
