About Schlumberger

With a history and culture of science and innovation, we’re the world’s leading provider of reservoir characterization, drilling, production, and processing technologies to the oil and gas industry.

Working globally, we invent, design, engineer, apply, and maintain technologies that help our customers find and produce oil and gas more efficiently and safely—often in remote and challenging locations.

Founded in 1926, the company takes its name from Conrad and Marcel Schlumberger, brothers who transformed the energy industry with the revolutionary idea of using electrical measurements to map subsurface rock formations.

We employ around 100,000 people of more than 140 nationalities and work in more than 85 countries. We leverage strong local experience and work hard to attract, retain and develop diverse talent.

You will always be encouraged to grow and you will never stop learning. Join us today to help us meet the technical challenges of tomorrow’s upstream oil and gas industry.

About our internships

We do not just “talk” about offering stimulating work: your real-life job begins the day you’re hired, with the opportunity to have early responsibility, including as an intern. This means every day is different. Whether you’re dealing directly with customers or designing or maintaining multimillion dollar tools, you’ll be exposed to interesting and challenging opportunities.

Internships at our Research, Engineering, Manufacturing and Sustaining centres present you with a real industry problem to solve. You’ll work within a team of experts for a minimum of 3 months up to 1 year. We have multidisciplinary teams so we need engineers and scientists from a variety of subject areas with strong technical skills and a passion for their subject.

Our interns are very important to us so we will look after you well! In exchange for all your hard work we host specific events to enable interns from across the country to meet and have some fun. We follow your progress, give you support, feedback and opportunity to discuss and plan career options on a one-to-one basis with the graduate recruiting team.

Schlumberger offers worldwide opportunities. Specifically, within in the UK we have opportunities in Cambridge, Abingdon, Stonehouse, Aberdeen and Gatwick (London).
