Energy and Natural Resources

The energy sector is responsible for the generation, transmission, and distribution of electricity and gas to businesses and homes. Some exciting job opportunities include power generation operations, network development and energy trading.

Upcoming major initiatives include the building of Singapore’s second Liquefied Natural Gas terminal, and the deployment of innovative smart grid technologies. These developments, coupled with ageing demographics, have increased demand for fresh talent in a stable sector that is resilient against economic conditions.

Aside from energy, Singapore also aims to be a nerve centre that plays a part in fulfilling global demand for natural resources. With trends of global consumption shifting from the West to the Asia Pacific, Singapore's strategic position in resource-rich Asia makes it a choice location for world-class natural resource companies.

The sector is also attractive from the perspective of professional growth and development, offering a range of technical and functional upgrade courses, team-building and leadership development programmes. Besides core technical/engineering skills, the energy & natural resources sector requires people in varied functions such as trading and project management.
