Creating Opportunities

Cuadrilla is proud to be at the forefront of shale gas exploration in the UK. We are headquartered in Lancashire and prioritise creating local jobs in the areas in which we operate.

We value and welcome diversity in our workforce. It is also important to us to provide our employees with appropriate training and development to ensure that our teams are enabled to carry out their responsibilities to the highest of standards.

What Our Employees Say

Alison, Executive Assistant

“Over the last 20 years I have provided executive support to managers of all levels in a wide and varied industry base, from Finance, IT, to Private Healthcare and Aerospace. When I joined Cuadrilla I couldn’t believe I had the opportunity to be part of such a ground breaking project.

“We are a small company and I enjoy the family feel within Cuadrilla. Supporting the CEO and Executive Team my duties are incredibly varied and the days are very often fast paced as our operations continue. I feel proud to know I am contributing towards a brighter and innovative future for Lancashire. Even though I am originally from Yorkshire!”

Chris, Supply Chain Specialist

“Working in Cuadrilla’s supply chain team is a highly demanding role, because the work of our department underpins all our operations from sourcing new phones for the Head Office through to negotiating new contracts for specialist drilling equipment.

“Cuadrilla has a commitment to prioritise Lancashire suppliers, and it has been a privilege to have met and worked with so many local Lancashire firms interested in supporting the county’s growing shale gas industry. I’ve also really enjoyed taking part in the judging of the Be Inspired Business Awards (BIBAs), Lancashire’s largest and longest running business awards programme.”

Arthur, Lease Hand

“I started working for Cuadrilla back in 2011, developing my skills and experience and working my way up to assistant driller. When planning permission for Preston New Road was refused, I had to find work elsewhere – mainly outside of Lancashire – but now that operations have started up again in the county I’ve joined the company again.

“It is a really enjoyable place to work and means that when I clock off at the end of a shift, I get to spend more time at home with my young family rather than travelling up and down the UK.”

Huw, Senior Geoscientist

“As a geoscientist, I am motivated to understand complex geological problems and provide energy solutions in a sustainable manner. During my time at Cuadrilla I’ve been able to deploy the latest analytical techniques and engineering understanding to explore the potential of indigenous gas across the UK and Europe.

“To date, I have published seven peer-reviewed scientific papers on subjects from resource estimation to induced seismicity and am dedicated to transparent robust science.”

Matt, Site Maintenance

“I’ve been w orking as part of the operations team at Cuadrilla’s Preston New Road site since early 2018. What’s impressed me from day one is the company’s commitment to safety and ensuring that all its work is carried out to the highest standards from general site maintenance through to designing and constructing new areas of the pad.”

“Working on the frontline of a new industry in the UK, alongside experts in their fields, also means that my days are never the same and you’re constantly learning.”
