International mobility

International mobility
Perenco operates production installations and worksites on land or at sea, 24/7, every day of the year, in different countries and on sites that are sometimes very remote. The nature of this business involves continual responsibility at all levels of management dealing with the running, backup and management of such operations. Ensuring the continuity of such operations requires excellent availability from personnel in terms of quickly taking up any new posting, whether temporary or permanent, wherever the company so requires.
Rotating shift worker 
Rotating shift workers are posted to production (or work) sites offshore, onshore, or on Perenco bases. The employee alternates continuous periods of work and periods of leave.
The length of shift periods, generally six weeks, varies in line with the country to which the employee is posted, applicable legislation and operational necessities. In compliance with professional practice, the working week is generally as follows: 12 hours work a day, 7 days a week.

How to Apply

Recruitment process

The most efficient way is to consult the section Positions available. You can apply by a job advertisements or with a spontaneous application, by going to the section ?unsolicited application? and specifying the desired country.
Response time
You will receive an immediate confirmation message "Thank you, your application has been received and is being processed". All your contact information, profile and CV are made available to the recruiter handling that position in Perenco Group.
If your application meets our initial criteria, you will progress to the next stage of our selection process.
Your profile will also be retained in our recruiting database for possible matches against future open positions. If your application does not meet our initial criteria, you will not be considered further for that specific job. However, your profile will be kept in our recruiting database for 12 months unless you state otherwise.
All the applications are handled by the HR services of the Group. If you were not contacted again within four to five weeks, you can consider that your application was not successful. If your application interests us but does not answer an identified need: we inform you that your application will be kept in our Talent bank.
This deadline corresponds to that of the Headquarters of the Group in France and it can vary according to countries and subsidiaries. The subsidiaries of Perenco are independant for the majority of their recruitments. Most of the Perenco subsidiaries have access to the website Perenco Careers and can thus publish their offers and receive applications from the site.
Talent bank
Data and information collected by the HR Team at Perenco are strictly for internal usage and will only be used only within the framework of the procedures of recruitment at Perenco.
According to data protection principle, we keep the application files which are sent to us for a duration of one year, with the consent of the interested who can, at any stage, state a change in their situation or state that they no longer wish to appear in our Talent Bank.


Training helps employees become part of the company

At Perenco, training is essential. It helps employees become part of the company, builds loyalty among employees and allows them to develop their competencies and, therefore, those of the company.


Add to your skills: in order to pursue your career goals within your role, your site, your subsidiary and the group, change profession and broaden your horizons.

Develop your abilities: in addition to the courses available specifically for your occupation, we also organise individual courses that enable you to delve into subject areas related to your line of work.

Providing resources to ensure effective training: alongside the professional networks that offer training specific to the oil industry, internal resources are also used to implement certain actions.


Stay informed: there is a customised employee Intranet site dedicated to training.


Recently, proposals for employment made by false organisations claiming to work for Perenco, or by individuals claiming to work or be affiliated with Perenco, have been reported. These propositions notify the applicant that their qualifications are suitable for the position as an employee (local or expatriate) for Perenco and request the transfer of a sum of money to pay for work permits and insurance policies, etc. Please note that Perenco (nor any of the recruitment agencies we work with) will never ask candidates to pay any fees whatsoever at any point in the recruitment process. The main clues to spot such communications are: - non-Perenco e-mail addresses (e.g. from a address) - the use of a poor English - or, money being requested to the candidate during the recruitment process. We recommend that you do not respond to unsolicited job offer or offers from unknown people.
