“If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.”
— Nora Roberts

Rising Stars are high potential people who are fully committed to their discipline, prepared to face their weaknesses and use them to develop a cultural change in engineering and help others reach new standards of Innovation, Careers, and Studies.

Becoming a member of the Academy is not like the typical garden of MBAs, CPD or traditional careers guidance at University or Human Resources Competency development. Hard work is the commitment - it takes guts and a focus to realise that fundamental basics need to be in place to make headway. After all, do you not wish that you were as patient & committed as the young mechanic who helped you fit a snow chain in the middle of the winter?

A willingness to develop others and yourself!

I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.
— Michael Jordan


Alternative Pathways

Changing employment or leaving the Academy to follow your path is not a barrier to being a member of PetroStars.

The way we see it, we will be committed to you by encouraging you to be the best you can and sometimes helping you take a new chance.

We can support you two-fold:

1) Allow you to develop your PetroStars franchise or branch/product service line


2) We will help you find your new home - yes as wild as it seems, the Academy provides recruitment services when you wish to leave.

However you want to travel - only Rising Stars achieve excellence!
