An introduction to the Vitol Group
It isn’t ships or terminals or cargoes that create our success: it’s the calibre of our people.
Being a global business, they come from all over the world and represent a vibrant mix of different nationalities, educational backgrounds and life experiences. In fact, today, people from around 60 different countries work for the Vitol group, all around the world. They continue to build our reputation as a leading player in the energy markets through their creativity, commitment, professionalism and entrepreneurial spirit.
Below is a very brief summary of what we do and the way we work. However, before applying for any opportunity we may have, we recommend you explore the main pages of this website and familiarise yourself more fully with our businesses.
Who are we? What do we do?
The Vitol Group is one of the largest independent energy trading groups in the world and operates through a global group of companies.
Although mainly a physical oil trader, the Group is now broadly based – with active trading operations in gas, coal, power, non-ferrous metals, derivatives and sugar. Essentially, we trade energy: we create markets for fuel products; we deliver cargoes, safely, on-specification and on-time; we provide extensive terminal and storage facilities; and we engineer innovative financing structures to the benefit of our clients. Through the Vitol Foundation, we are also active in charitable funding to benefit severely deprived children in Asia, Africa, Latin America and CIS.
Where are we?
We have offices all over the world, with the majority of our people located in the six key locations of Geneva, Houston, London, Moscow, Rotterdam and Singapore. We are active wherever our customers and the markets dictate, and this inevitably gives rise to some exciting, challenging and rewarding career assignments and opportunities.
