We have hundreds of oil rig jobs and jobs in the oil industry to choose from within the oil and gas industry whatever your experience, background, or qualifications. Though the pay is generally excellent at all levels when compared with similar non-oil industry jobs, some oil rig jobs and jobs in the oil industry can be physically demanding so seek advice on the position you are looking for.
