Outstanding Growth Opportunities

We operate with a collaborative staff, making the contributions of each individual critical to our success. Our highly-efficient structure allows employees to have roles that make a true impact in the organization. We invest in our team through on-the-job opportunities (rotational assignments and developmental projects), learning from others (mentors and role models), and in-class training.

We deliver endless opportunities for career development. At LyondellBasell, your career path is an ever-growing opportunity that will shape your professional development and create value for customers and stakeholders you support.

One example of this is our structured, yet flexible, engineering development program. Upon joining the company, new engineers are partnered with a senior engineering mentor who will provide guidance and feedback to help them succeed. Throughout their first assignment, new engineers work closely with their supervisors to determine possible job rotations that are a "best fit" – helping them to reach their goals while filling business needs. Our rotational process offers diverse assignments, maximizing exposure to different technologies, functions, locations, and cultures.

Other functions offer similar experiences for their employees, who partner with their managers to identify development needs and experiences that will help them grow.
We offer endless opportunities for career development. At LyondellBasell, your career path is limited only by your imagination. Ultimately, you will shape your own career by taking the lead in your personal and professional development.
