How you can grow
As a group within the Finance organization Land Administration new hires will have the opportunity for various professional development programs:
Finance Onboarding Program
The two-week Finance Onboarding Program is conducted in June to acclimate new hires to the company and culture. Short training sessions led by experienced ConocoPhillips professionals provide an overview of career development concepts, key energy value chain segments, emerging technology in Finance, and the overall Finance function at ConocoPhillips. Goals of the program are to achieve early career training, promote a team environment, and establish early networks.
Employee Development Program
The Employee Development Program is held annually from March – August offering eight hours of training per month. Employees self-nominate to participate in the program based on an innovative project/idea they have to improve an aspect of their current role. The program provides employees with an opportunity to develop new skills, further refine existing skills, and demonstrate the ability to drive their innovative project/idea to completion. Participants will be exposed to company strategy, market outlook, project management, communication skills, and emerging technology in Finance to relate these concepts back to their project. Throughout the program, participants develop informal leadership skills, expand their network, and interact with Finance leaders.
As a member in the Land Administration function, the individual would develop knowledge and experience to assist business partners, make sound business decisions, and resolve large volumes of complex lease and contract transactions in a manner that limits company risks, including asset loss, exposure to penalties, litigation, and poor external relations. The skills developed will enable the individual to contribute to the overall business goals as an active member of the Land Administration team.
