Gazprom Neft starts its search for — and work with — talent as early as possible, running several specialist ‘Gazprom Neft classes’ through two of the company’s most significant subsidiaries — Gazpromneft Noyabrskneftegaz and the Gazprom Neft Omsk Refinery. Such highly specialist cooperation between the company and various schools provides senior students with the specialist preparation they need to gain admission to higher educational establishments specializing in the oil sector. The company also supports the organization of ‘Olympiads’ (inter-school competitions) for high school graduates in those regions in which it operates, with the aim of selecting winners for enrolment at higher educational establishments in the oil and gas sector.
Acutely conscious of its role in driving educational standards within the industry, the company partners with the most prestigious higher educational establishments in the country, sponsoring the development of their scientific resources and infrastructure, and providing career advice to students.
Gazprom Neft subsidiary companies also support and partner with higher educational establishments in their own localities.
Gazprom Neft enterprises offer student internships every year, employing graduates from secondary technical schools and colleges throughout the entire country. Successful completion of an internship can lead not only to the acquisition of basic professional skills, but also to an offer of employment. Several Gazprom Neft enterprises also offer student sponsorships (stipends).
