Challenging, Rewarding Careers
A collaborative work environment with friendly people makes Nexen UK a great place to work.
Nexen’s Upcoming Aberdeen Office
With a move-in date scheduled for December 2013, our new Aberdeen office will feature a cutting-edge design that supports our people and our growing UK operations.
We offer challenging careers as a major UK North Sea operator and developer. Nexen is the second largest producer in the UK North Sea, and we're growing. In 2012, we produced an average of 99,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day net to Nexen, primarily from the offshore Buzzard field, 60 miles northeast of Aberdeen. We're currently constructing our next major development at nearby Golden Eagle — the second largest UK North Sea discovery of the past decade, after Buzzard. We continue to explore and appraise future opportunities and expect to generate significant economic benefit for the UK for many years to come.
We provide safe & rewarding work opportunities. At Nexen, we care about the way business is done, and we’ve earned a global reputation for safe and responsible business practices. Nexen is a member of Step Change in Safety, a UK-based organization dedicated to making the UK energy industry the safest place in the world to work. Nexen is also listed in many high-profile sustainability rankings, including the 2013 Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World.
We support teamwork. A career at Nexen is all about contributing to a team that values diversity, professional development and integrity. Our work teams are designed to enhance collaboration, generate new ideas, and encourage creative problem-solving. We’re the recipient of many top employer awards and are recognised for excellent support for employee development, dedication to employee engagement, and providing an exceptional workspace.
We provide competitive compensation and benefits. In whatever capacity you are employed, Nexen’s pay-for-performance compensation programs are highly competitive. Our comprehensive benefit, savings and pension programs provide value and flexibility to employees and their family.
We provide our employees with the opportunity to grow. Nexen is pursuing an aggressive growth strategy in strategic locations around the world – not only in the UK North Sea but also in Canada, the Gulf of Mexico and offshore West Africa. Our resource base is diverse and includes conventional oil & gas, oil sands and shale gas. Our combination of resources and geography creates job opportunities in a number of locations and gives us the ability to match a person’s career interests with a particular business need.
