Opportunities for skilled professionals
Building a pipeline of TAP’s size across three different countries is a challenging and complex mission. Today, at our headquarters in Switzerland and in our branch offices in Greece, Albania and Italy, we already employ about 200 specialists from many countries and hundreds of contracted service company experts.
That number is set to increase over the next few years. The TAP project team will require more skilled professionals at our headquarters, while our contractors and subcontractors will also be hiring workers with a variety of essential skills as the project gathers momentum on the ground.

Independent experts expect TAP to stimulate the creation of new jobs, both directly through TAP’s contractors and indirectly through economic ‘spillover’ effects during the lifetime of the pipeline.
Indeed, most of the direct and indirect employment opportunities in Greece, Albania and Italy will be created by TAP’s contractors and sub-contractors. These companies will be hiring a range of specialists to provide their services to TAP. We recommend that interested individuals and companies closely observe the local job market for TAP-related opportunities in their countries.
Opportunities for companies
As one of Europe’s important energy infrastructure developments, TAP provides a range of opportunities for international as well as national and local companies seeking to work as suppliers and service providers.
This contributes to one of the project’s objectives of establishing a lasting legacy in the countries through which the pipeline will pass.
Human rights and equality
At TAP, we believe in the principles of fairness, transparency and equality. This applies to the way we treat every individual and entity, from our employees, contractors and subcontractors to the communities in which we work.
TAP was one of the first pipeline projects to commit to the voluntary UN Business Principles on Human Rights (UNBPHR), a further demonstration of our dedication to equality.
As part of this commitment, TAP ensures that human rights issues are thoroughly considered during all project implementation stages.
We are committed to providing all employees with a non-discriminatory workplace environment and to comply with best practice on human resource management and occupational health and safety.
Similarly, we expect all contractors involved in the construction and operation of TAP to commit to the same principles and endeavour to meet the same standards.
We also assure full compliance throughout our supply chain with the core labour standards as defined by the International Labour Organisation.
