Our People

Who works at FEP? 

Our team of around 250 is made up of scientists, chemical, mechanical and environmental engineers, catering, cleaning, maintenance, technicians, analysts, planners and support staff.

Over a third of our team started their careers as apprentices, with many having gone on to hold important positions at FEP or with ExxonMobil in countries around the world.

A large number of our team were born and live locally to the plant, but we also have colleagues from 48 different countries working with us.

In addition, we are also supported by a large number of specialist contractors who are employed by companies from throughout Fife and Scotland.

We celebrated International Women in Engineering Day 2020. Hear from some of our female engineers below. 


We always get a lot of interest in our Modern Apprenticeship Programme, so we have produced a new guide to provide you with an insight.

It tells you all about our four-year programme, how to apply and what it will provide. You can also hear some success stories from our former apprentices and first-hand experiences from some of our current apprentices.
