I work as an in-house Lawyer with Maersk. The role is really diverse and involves assisting all departments in the company with many different legal issues around the whole oil and gas process, from exploration to production. It’s so varied and incredibly interesting.
The best things about the job are its diversity, working in an environment where you are constantly challenged and solving problems on a daily basis. The most important skills required for the role are: attention to detail, negotiation skills and excellent professional conduct and ethics.
I always wanted to be a Lawyer and after studying Law at university I trained in the oil and gas department of a law firm. The oil and gas industry has so many opportunities, your career can take you any many different directions. I feel as though my career is just beginning because in oil and gas it’s possible to achieve so much.
