The recruitment process

When recruiting, we take several aspects into consideration, including motivational letter and personal assessments. If you are selected for an interview, we will invite you to one of our offices to meet you in person.

Recruitment fraud alert: We have been made aware that unauthorised individuals have masqueraded as Maersk Drilling, promising job opportunities in our name and requesting payments to cover processing fees, visas, work permits or other formalities. The job offers are typically supported by forged documents.

Maersk Drilling does not make unsolicited offers of employment, and will never require potential candidates to make any form of advance payment as part of the hiring process. You will only be contacted by us if you have applied for an open position on our website.

Maersk Drilling's recruitment process: 

  1. Apply online: Fill out our online application form. Unfortunately we do not accept unsolicited applications. Remember to attach a CV and cover letter. You may also attach relevant certificates.
  2. Online assessments (only used in some locations) (No later than 2 weeks after posting close date): Shortlisted candidates will be invited to complete two online assessments; a logical indicator and a personality assessment.
  3. Interviews (Up to 2 weeks after online assessments): Based on the application, past experiences, education and the two online assessments, we invite the right candidates for a two part interview. The first part will focus on you as a person; your motivations and ambitions. This is held with a Recruiter/HR Partner. The second interview will focus on your professional skills in relation to the particular position and is conducted by the hiring manager. (In some locations the interview also includes an onsite logical indicator assessment.)
  4. Job offer: If you are the chosen candidate, you will receive a job offer. 


Protection of personal data: Maersk Drilling respects the privacy of our employees and the individuals whom we work with. Therefore we only collect personal information when necessary for our legitimate business operations, or to comply with law, and we always handle the information we collect with respect and confidentiality and in accordance with relevant legal requirements.
