The best talent in the industry

Seadrill is built on the passion and talent of our people, which is why we invest in training and development.

We have a highly-trained and capable team with over 40 years of experience. We aim to:

  • Build capability and promote people from within our organization to ensure we have a stream of experienced and skilled people. We complement this with selective external recruitment for specialist roles.
  • Ensure all our drillers meet the Enhanced Well Control training standards, allowing us to continue to operate with the highest safety measures in place – preparing our offshore drilling teams for the challenges they face on the job.

We have also implemented an ‘AD-Driller-Toolpusher’ training programme to help our teams remain up-to-date with new digital technologies and changing industry demands, from automation to advanced data analytics.
