Working with us
We know what long-term means. We’ve been around almost as long as Canada has been a country – and we have learned a lot over that time. Today, we’re still learning. We’ve learned to take a long-term view on everything that matters – our environment, our communities, our research, our business and, most importantly, our people. 

Why are we in for the long-haul with our people? Because complex challenges require ongoing problem solving. And because our stable Canadian roots, experience and pioneering spirit positions us to provide lifelong employment in the urgent quest to meet growing demand for responsible energy. 

But we don’t take that for granted. The world is demanding we become more sustainable. Put simply, smart people helped us become one of Canada’s largest oil and gas companies, and we need smart people to help us push through the next evolution of this industry.

Why Imperial? It’s a win-win.

When you join Imperial, you join more than 5,800 employees who share in the success of our Canadian history and vision. Together we benefit from:



Students. Graduates. Experienced professionals. Regardless of experience level, if you come from a background in operations, trades and technology, engineering, science or business, let’s talk.

We don’t always fish from the usual ponds. Sure, we actively recruit from universities across Canada, and our operations support apprenticeship and technical career programs at local colleges. But diversity is key if we’re going to have the perspectives we need to tackle today’s complex challenges. So we think beyond the usual recruitment methods and reach people who may not have previously considered a career in oil and gas.
