Why Seadrill?

Setting the standard in drilling is as much about what we do for our people as what they do for us. So at Seadrill you’ll discover the career opportunities, just like our technology and commitment to safety, are truly in a class of their own.


Seadrill sets the standard. Not just in drilling and safety, but training and development too. We’re always looking for new ways to prepare our people for the future. That’s why we actively encourage you to share and grow your expertise. And we make doing so really easy. In fact, the training you’ll receive and the scope you’ll have to progress really set Seadrill apart.

Join us and you’ll enjoy the advantages of a comprehensive range of training programmes and smart learning initiatives. Committed to innovation, our development offer combines eLearning, classroom-based theory and practical training. Opportunities include business schools, leadership development training, and drill simulator training. What’s more, the strategic partnerships we’ve built with a range of external suppliers mean the possibilities for training are broader than ever.

We expect you to be proactive in pursuing your own development. There are plenty of resources that enable you to take professional growth into your own hands.  With a bespoke personal training profile, agreed development goals, and an online appraisal process, you can grow your skill set in a targeted way. You’ll help shape our future and your own at the same time.

If you’re based offshore, you’ll benefit from our Competence Assurance Programme, which will ensure you have all the right skills and competencies. Our Training Matrix helps us to identify individual training requirements for each role. This also ensures compliance with all local, international and client-specific regulations and policies. What’s more, if you choose to move into an onshore role in the future, we offer both formal and informal support to make the transition.
