Why Develop Your Career with Optimus
Optimus believes in a holistic approach and aspirational management. We want our employees to do well but, more importantly, we want our employees to want to do well themselves by being committed to their own development by applying their knowledge and understanding to a varied workload to enhance their abilities. While your training will encompass a structured support network of managers, mentors, senior team and discipline leads, you will also be encouraged to take ownership of your own career. We aim to allow you to build on your core discipline knowledge through developing a strong understanding of our business and the oil and gas industry. From day one you will be a valued member of the team and will be given the opportunity to work on a wide range of projects, providing you with responsibility from the outset. Working on real assignments will challenge you to accelerate your development and increase your confidence.


At Optimus, you will work alongside others who have made the same journey and may serve as mentors. We will supplement technical training with a combination of experiential and exposure-led training activities to help you achieve your potential.


Our summer placement programme gives a taste of what it will be like to make the transition from university to the world of work. For recent graduates, we recognise the time and energy spent at university, and now will assist you in putting that knowledge and theory to practical use.


Optimus are committed to investing in people by hiring experienced personnel and also nurturing graduates, summer students and school placements. We give back to the community and support the next generation of engineers.


Working Environment

Optimus prides itself on its positive working environment. We are a smaller company, which means that most people know each other and there are numerous opportunities to socialise and meet people of a comparable age with similar interests. We participate in several company activities each year, such as an annual intercompany rowing competition, Christmas meals and parties, and occasional walks in the countryside. We aim to provide a balance between work life and home life to ensure that Optimus is a company you look forward to working in each day.
