Chemistry that matters

SABIC is a highly successful, rapidly expanding global manufacturer of chemicals, fertilizers, metals and plastics. We supply these materials to other companies, who use them to make products the world has come to depend on, for example shampoo bottles. We are already among the top petrochemical players in the world and are implementing an ambitious growth strategy that will take us to the top of the global rankings by 2020.
Since we started operating in 1976 in Saudi Arabia, SABIC has evolved into a truly global organization with over 33,000 people working in more than 40 countries for customers in over 100 countries. Our European business employs over 6,200 people at 11 manufacturing facilities; 4 Technology and Innovation centers; and a network of commercial sales offices located in almost every European country. Together, our teams in Europe serve customers in 3 of our 6 business units: Polymers, Chemicals and Innovative Plastics.

Europe plays a key role in our long-term plans and these are exciting times for SABIC people across the region. We have some of the best learning and development programs in our sector and continually invest in equipping our people to excel.

At SABIC, we are always pushing the limits further. We are ambitious and striving to become the preferred world leader in chemicals by 2020. But we do not believe in growth at any cost. That is because we share people’s concerns about the future of our planet, its people and the environment. We also understand that people want to work for a business that respects their concerns about these issues – and acts on them.

We aim to support your professional and personal development by giving you the chance to build a challenging and satisfying career that maximizes your existing strengths and unlocks potential you never knew you had. After all, the future is not just about us. It is about both of us. Build your future with SABIC!
