Worley

Who are Worley?

We are a worldwide team of consultants, engineers, construction workers and data scientists all with one thing in common: we love to be challenged. Every day, we come to work to solve the complexity of the energy, chemicals and resources sectors. 

We are stronger together.  Over the past 12 months our network has grown. This brings an even greater responsibility to make a positive impact on the world. We work with our customers, their consumers and local communities to build a better tomorrow. We put sustainability at the heart of everything, whether we’re helping customers improve their assets or preparing them for the next chapter of the energy transition

By recognizing people’s talents, experience and potential, we foster a diverse workplace where we look out for one another.


A culture where we care about the environment and the communities in which we work and where we use our skills, expertise, and judgement to keep everyone – our people, customers, and communities – safe.

Our people are at the core of our business.  Worley people have the confidence to ask questions and challenge the answers they receive. We thrive on open conversations and healthy debates. It’s our people who create safety every single day, using their skills and experience to adapt to changing situations. To support them, we give them access to industry-leading tools and systems, making it possible for them to deliver safe and successful work.

Why did Worley join WISE?

At Worley, we know a diverse team is a stronger team. We’re committed to challenging gender inequality. Conscious and unconscious bias. The rights of working mothers. And the barriers to pursuing a career in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). That’s why we joined WISE.
