Career Development

We offer an unprecedented opportunity for growth and development. Working with us means no matter what you do, you have the ability to make an immediate impact. We have a global portfolio that continues to expand, and every day you have the opportunity to contribute in a meaningful way.

Our talent development strategy is the foundation for how we develop our workforce. We proactively identify and move our high performers across divisions, functions and regions to ensure they are growing their skill sets and gaining new, diverse experiences. As our people grow, so do we, and within our industry we have built a strong reputation for developing our talent.

One of the career development initiatives that sets us apart from many of our peers is the CNOOC International Upward Potential Program (UPP). We provide select high-performing individuals with the opportunity to work directly with an Executive Leadership Team member for a 12-month period, giving them unique exposure to executive level discussions and decisions. Watch the video below to hear some of our UPP graduates reflect on what they learned, how their experiences in this career development program have helped them in their current roles and where they see themselves in the future:



Reward and Recognition

CNOOC International strives to retain and recognize high performing individuals who help us achieve superior results and deliver our vision of energy for all. Our pay-for-performance approach is at the foundation of our competitive compensation and benefits offerings that are designed to attract, retain and motivate the best and brightest.

Recognizing and rewarding the value our people bring to the business is crucial to our ongoing success. It's what keeps the best talent motivated and driven to deliver superior results. We believe that reward and recognition should extend beyond just compensation.

In return for your hard work, tenacity and contributions, you can expect an array of benefits. From personal career development that enables you to fulfill your potential, to employee programs that help you make the most of life outside of work, we care for our people and it shows.
