Versalis wants to be a tangible response to the challenges of the global market. A structure designated to redefine the company's involvement in the most qualified sectors of the petrochemical industry: those where demand is more stable, with growth margins in Europe and the rest of the world. Those where competition is possible, in terms of cost and quality.

Versalis is the result of a focusing process whose strength lies in the integration: from raw materials to production plants, from research laboratories to technology up to the interface with the market that can therefore turn to a single supplier with the certainty of finding solutions to all its requirements, not only in terms of products, but also (and most importantly) of services, support and innovation.

Human Resources

For those who operate in a high technology business, such as the polymers one, innovation is a crucial factor, and it is not only limited to research and development, but also extends to vital components of the company, first of all its personnel.

A dedicated staff of about 5,800 employees is the driving force behind all our activities. Individually and as part of a team, their competence and creativity make Versalis a dynamic and strongly customer-oriented organisation. Our business requires specialists in various technical and scientific disciplines: engineering, chemistry, and industrial chemistry, for work on site and in the laboratory concerning production process technology and R&D. Supporting them is a human capital made up of management, IT, financial, legal and sales experts.

All our staff follow a training programme which develops both "on the job", and through participation in seminars and specialisation courses.

Job opportunities - All professionals, newly-graduates, undergraduates who are interested in working for Versalis can send their resumes by clicking on the "Job & Careers" key in the yellow menu, upper right-hand side, and select "Versalis" as "CV Reference" . Recruitment will be carried out by Eni Corporate University, the eni company responsible for recruitment, selection and training activities.


Constant commitment towards product, process, and technology innovation is the fundamental premise behind strengthening and maintaining Versalis's competitiveness and leadership position. This commitment is at the core of customer relations based on collaboration and trust, as our customers need to be able to count on a supplier - or partner - able to pre-empt demands and rapidly provide a response.

Versalis's research, centred on its basic chemicals, polyethylene, styrenics and elastomers businesses, has the following main aims:

  • the perfection of new high-performance product lines;
  • the development of innovative processes;
  • the strengthening of proprietary technologies, particularly in the most innovative areas;
  • the definition of solutions aimed at limiting the environmental impact of existing products and production processes.

In order to attain these objectives, Versalis makes use of a team of about 300 researchers and technologists distributed in the Research Centres and Units situated in our main production plants (Brindisi, Mantua, Ferrara, Ravenna).
The Research Centres are structures highly specialized in the different business sectors, dedicated to improving processes and creating innovative products according to the requirements of the market.

Besides its own research structures, Versalis also counts on a wide-ranging network of contacts as well as co-operations with important university research laboratories both in Italy and abroad.
All our research centres use complex scientific equipment that enables them to gain an in depth knowledge of all the features and characteristics of our products and thus evaluate their performance, so that they better respond to our customers' requirements.

Our researchers' active role in the scientific areas of interest, the efficient monitoring of the evolution of production and application technologies, the constant and direct relationship with our customers - also supported by our technical assistance structures - all translate into an unflagging focus on our objectives in terms of innovation and the development of products and processes.
