Plus, as part of a multidisciplinary team of professionals, you’ll have the chance to extend your knowledge and build the career you deserve.

Power Systems Planning Department (PSPD)

With significant growth, our peak electricity demand is set to surpass 78 GW by 2018, at an average annual growth rate of 7%. So PSPD is teaming up with the major utility companies in the Kingdom to optimize our energy value chain, and push forward ideas that make the entire sector more sustainable and efficient. As well as assessing the Kingdom’s long-term demand for power, our team here are looking to improve overall utility efficiency, optimize fuel-mix utilization through best dispatching scenarios, and ultimately deliver planning policies and fuel consumption guidelines that are focused on continuous improvement.

Our multidisciplinary team of talented professionals are exploring renewable energy technologies with the ultimate aim of conserving the consumption of high value hydrocarbon fuels in the Kingdom. As well as incorporating renewable energy into our energy mix, PSRD are also looking to diversify the Kingdom’s entire economy by creating a renewable energy industry. Evaluating the deployment of technologies that make efficient use of the renewable natural resources, the team are also looking at ways we can produce clean energy through the development of solar-parks and wind-farms – helping meet the Kingdom’s energy demand, protect the environment and create rewarding jobs opportunities.

Join us here and you can really bring your innovative ideas to life – looking at every way we can use renewable technologies to produce the pollution-free energy our future depends on.

We plan to install a 3.3 megawatt wind turbine at our Turaif bulk plant.

Aviation

The Aviation Department at Saudi Aramco, based at the King Fahad International Airport in Dammam, provides fixed and rotary wing passenger services to over 24 locations across the Kingdom. This could involve moving ship pilots, carrying out search and rescue operations, as well as transferring medical patients.

Many pilots mold their careers to gain the necessary experience to meet the minimum requirements to be considered for a position. Join us and you’ll get to fly current and well-maintained craft, with the newest technologies and established procedures, in a safe environment. The work schedule is flexible and easy to fulfil.

Last year, Aviation carried over 750,000 passengers and clocked up over 34,000 flight hours, mostly to support exploration and production activities.

Marine

Saudi Aramco’s enormous storage tank farms and shipping terminals supply crude oil, natural gas liquids (NGL), and refined products to customers around the globe. Every year, thousands of tankers call at our terminals in Ras Tanura, Ju’aymah, Yanbu’, Jiddah, and Rabigh. And with the construction of the Jazan project and terminal in the southwest of the Kingdom, this traffic is only set to increase. With the assistance of powerful tug boats and marine vessels, highly trained harbor pilots direct and control the movement of tankers. Join us, and you’ll help to run and maintain the safest, most customer-responsive and professional crude oil and petroleum terminals anywhere.
