Company Overview:

Our Vision is One
We are one, unified organisation. Our vision is driven by purpose and maintained with the highest values.

People power our future. That is why advancing a dynamic, inclusive environment, where everyone grows and thrives is critically important to us.

Our ingenuity fuels daily life. Together, we’ve forged some of the most trusted partnerships across the energy value chain to make what was once just an idea a reality: laying subsea infrastructure thousands of feet below sea level, installing offshore platforms hundreds of miles from shore, and using our expertise to design and build offshore wind infrastructure.

For more than 100 years, we've been making the impossible possible. Today, we're driving the energy transition with more than 30,000 of the brightest minds across 54 countries.

Here, what you do matters.
