Fraud Alert

Recently, we have been made aware of “scams” whereby unauthorized individuals are using Noble's name and logo to solicit potential job-seekers for employment or to extend fraudulent job offers. Such scams are unfortunately somewhat common and have targeted many companies around the world, including Noble. We are aware of some cases where job-seekers are being contacted directly, by phone and/or e-mail. In other instances, these unauthorized individuals may place advertisements for fake positions with both legitimate websites and fabricated ones. These individuals typically promise high-paying jobs with the requirement that the job-seeker send money to pay for things such as visa applications or processing fees.

Please be advised that Noble will never ask potential job-seekers for any sort of advance payment as part of the recruiting or hiring process.

History of Noble

A Noble Enterprise

A brief history of Noble Corporation plc.

Noble Corporation Overview

Noble is a leading offshore driller.

The Company's proactive style of management has guided it from a one rig operation in 1921 to one of the largest offshore drilling contractors in the world today. The Company's growth since the time of its spin-off from Noble Affiliates in 1985 has come about through a series of strategic acquisitions of offshore drilling assets.

These acquisitions follow the goals originally set forth in 1985 - to gain a strong position in foreign drilling markets, to expand marine drilling operations and to move into new markets and segments of the industry, preparing the Company to take advantage of an improved marketplace.

Noble has been successful by maintaining a conservative financial policy, positioning itself to adapt to the ever changing world energy market and meeting customers' needs and demands. At the same time, the Company has assimilated an experienced and well trained work force. Lloyd Noble set the tone for the Company's employee-oriented attitude in A Legacy for Management when he said :

It has been my further belief that it was the duty of the management, and to that end my mind has been constantly surcharged, to so build the organization that when men evidenced capabilities to give them a part of my work and find other tasks to do which might result in increased benefits to the organization, or step aside; and, on the other hand, should death intervene, to have matters so arranged that I would be missed personally, while the machinery continued to function smoothly. 

- from the will of Lloyd Noble

Noble will continue to perpetuate this heritage by providing the highest quality service and performance, which its customers, employees and shareholders have come to know and expect.
