The oil and gas company MOL group has launched an interactive competition for students to join their team.

An oil company has launched an interactive game in a bid to recruit fresh talent to its team.

MOL Group, a leading international oil and gas company with headquarters in Eastern Europe, has opened the competition to 27 selected universities from 14 countries across the world.

Teams will take part in two rounds, which includes an online simulation game, where participants have to solve industrial and strategic challenges in virtual scenarios.

The tasks involve case studies from real MOL Group exploration and production scenarios in Pakistan.

The teams will then have to take part in a live final in the first year of the company’s new talent acquisition and development programme.

MOL Group is looking to boost the number of recruits in the field of geoscience and petroleum engineering.

The three most successful teams will be given the opportunity to join MOL Group and start their careers through the 18-month UPPP Technical Placement Program if they win, as well as a chance to win €20,000.

UPPP is a special competition to promote MOL Group among graduates in Upstream-related disciplines.

Students from four universities in Scotland will be eligible including the Institute of Petroleum Engineering at Heriot-Watt University, Robert Gordon University, the University of Aberdeen and the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow.

The program is based on four pillars, which entails practical experience and training units.

The main objectives are to develop essential entrepreneurial skills and technical expertise at the same time.

The program will offer on-site experience at two or more international upstream locations, and headquarter exposure at MOL Group’s main site in Budapest.

Students who are not in the final year of their studies will be offered scholarships, training opportunities and options for a summer internship.

Zdravka Demeter Bubalo, HR vice president of MOL Group, said: “We are proud of our new UPPP Program, that offers qualified top talent the opportunity to join MOL Group’s Upstream division.

“UPPP is dedicated to those students who are open to real-life challenges and dare to enter an exciting challenge.”

Teams from selected universities in 14 countries ranging from the UK and Central Europe through to the Middle East can apply via the UPPP online simulation game from today now until October 23rd.

MOL Group has operation in more than 40 countries and employs almost 29,000 people worldwide.

The company has production plants in eight countries and exploration assets in 13 countries.
