SABIC – Why Work For Us?


SABIC is headquartered in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia) and is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of chemicals, agri-nutrients, plastics and metals. We supply these materials to companies, who use them to make a wide array of products on which much of the world has come to depend.

At SABIC, we believe in using chemistry to power the ambitions of our customers, business partners, employees and societies we live in. We call this “CHEMISTRY THAT MATTERS™”.


We’ve always recognised the power of people. We believe that it takes special people to make a difference and they need ingenuity, brilliance and the freedom to turn their ideas into reality. This has helped shape the culture at SABIC. We seek out open-minded, gifted, questioning people and create the conditions for their talent to flourish: fulfilling work environments, state-of-the-art technology and the empowerment they need.

When you work for SABIC, we make sure you feel empowered to find new solutions and possibilities that change the world for the better.


SABIC is a company you encounter every day. Everything from the packaging of your food to the clothes you wear, the car you drive and the digital screen you are looking at right now – have one thing in common. They have all been made using SABIC products.

That’s hardly surprising considering we’re the second-largest diversified chemical company in the world, helping our customers develop over 150 new products each year.

We’ve swiftly grown to become a leading Fortune Top 100 company and have plans to continue this stable growth. So much so, that by 2025 we intend to be the world leader in chemicals.

We have operations in over 40 countries, customers in over 100, and employ around 40,000 people. But, we are always looking for ways to continually develop and grow.  


SABIC is implementing an ambitious expansion strategy, but we do not believe in growth at any cost. That’s because we share everyone’s concerns about the future of our communities and the environment. Joining SABIC makes you part of a team that takes its social, ethical and environmental responsibilities seriously. Based on an uncompromising commitment to integrity, the values we share are a living, breathing part of our working culture.

If you share these values, you could share a future with SABIC.


At SABIC, we know that our success depends on that of our people. We’re committed to nurturing your talent, to help you achieve both your career ambitions and life goals. We’re intent on offering tailored training and development programs for our employees which are among the best in the petrochemical industry.

Our personalized performance system provides clear feedback with recommended development actions. We offer over 100 courses at the SABIC Academy to support your learning at every professional level, across core business skills, finance, sales and marketing, supply chain, and technical skills.

We’re proud to be recognized in several countries as a top employer. If you’re looking for a career that will make the best of your strengths, we’d like to hear from you.

    There are Many good leaders and many career opportunities recently . Good work and life balance. Company offers Good 401K match.


    Higher level managers’ response is very slow. Especially from Saudi Arabia. Many new hires in lots of departments which make inefficient operations recently.

    Advice to Management

    Give more power to lower level managers.
