When it comes to the oil rig, which is a place with extremely high risk, it is crucial that nobody make a mistake. Hence, effective communication is highly prioritised among the team. People who works at the oil rig needs to be extremely careful because even the smallest negligence or haphazard may lead to life threatening situations.
Rig Managers are the people who oversees everything in the oil rig and that includes the whole team of people. You will need to be able to effectively delegate all the work to suitable team members to ensure that the tasks will be done with great precision. As the leader, you will need to handle all kinds of problems that arose in the rig in the best way possible.
As a Rig Manager, you will need to organise your work and plan your schedules accordingly. You need to coordinate your team members’ schedules and also their day-to-day tasks to avoid any clash and to maximise the productivity of the team.

It is not compulsory to have a postgraduate degree though it is recommended. Despite the more lenient qualification level, you will need to be certified in many other areas such as first aid, license to operate dangerous equipment, an extensive background of working on a rig and more.
The working hours of a Rig Manager is very long and involves shift work. Often times they will need to stay at the rig for weeks until their shift is over. A rig operates on 12-hour shifts and typically workers do 14 days and then rotate out for a break for another 14 days.
