Since April, new graduates around the world have been facing unexpected barriers at the start of  their careers as the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in cancelled work placements, summer schools, leadership opportunities, and internships. In support of young people worldwide, Student Energy encouraged employers and institutions (who were able to) to provide more opportunities for young people during this time. 

We are excited to announce that our call to support the next generation of leaders was answered by the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative. The OGCI Youth Intern Training Programme is offering online, paid work internship positions with the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative from June to September 2020. Supported by Student Energy, these positions will allow youth to become an integral part of the Strategy and Policy team, and support OGCI’s climate agenda on one of the following four themes: low emissions opportunities, transportation, the role of gas, and carbon capture utilization and storage. Young people in Student Energy’s network and alumni from Student Energy’s programs are particularly encouraged to apply.The successful candidates will gain experience critical to a career in climate change and sustainable energy.


The Oil and Gas Climate Initiative is a CEO-led consortium that aims to accelerate the industry response to climate change. OGCI member companies explicitly support the Paris Agreement and its goals. As leaders in the industry, accounting for over 30% of global operated oil and gas production, OGCI aims to leverage their collective strength and expand the pace and scope of their transitions to a low-carbon future, helping to achieve net zero emissions as early as possible. Their members collectively invest around $7B each year in low carbon solutions. OGCI Climate Investments, their $1B+ fund, invests in solutions to decarbonize sectors like oil and gas, industry and commercial transport.


Applications are now open and will close on May 20th, 11:59 UTC. The position is open to young people from around the world undertaking a Bachelor or Master programme, who are currently enrolled in University or just recently graduated from university (6 months after the end of last modules). Apply here.
