INEOS continues to grow year on year, with our latest project being an investment of €2.7 billion to build a world scale ethane cracker and a PDH (Propane Dehydrogenation) unit. This will be the first new cracker built in Europe for two decades. Excitingly INEOS is diversifying as well as continuing to invest in chemicals, entering the automotive industry with projekt Grenadier, the fashion industry with Belstaff and the sports world with the purchase of FC Lausanne.

At INEOS sustainability is fundamental to how we do business, using innovative ideas and processes to increase capacity, while reducing energy used in the petrochemical processes. Making INEOS a forward-thinking chemical company with the sustainable future in mind.


INEOS has well established graduate engineering programmes in Europe and the US. These are typically of 5 years duration and you will achieve professional accreditation qualifications as appropriate. Based at one of our large manufacturing sites, you will find yourself working on real projects with experienced engineers who will mentor and guide you. You will develop key skills and gain a broad-based experience. You can progress in all key engineering disciplines, including chemical, mechanical, electrical & instrument and process control. Later in the programme, you may also have the opportunity to move sites or businesses. Hence the ability and desire to be mobile is something we look for, particularly if you wish to attain senior management roles within engineering such as Site or Operations manager.


If you are interested in business roles, then our European commercial graduate programme is for you. The aim of this 5-year programme is to provide you with a breadth of commercial experience early in your career. You will typically move roles every 2 years - this could involve moving from one business to another, changing functions and even moving countries. Hence you must be geographically flexible. Each role will provide a new challenge and will enable you to gain a wide range of experience, essential for anyone aspiring to be a future leader. Should you move countries, language training & support is provided.

Since we recruit graduates into real jobs from Day One, the roles available will vary each year. Examples of areas you could work in include supply chain, logistics, trading & shipping sales and operations.

Both graduate programmes will deliver managed career development, with targeted salary progression, comprehensive training, and you will be assigned an experienced senior manager who will act as your mentor.
