People and Culture

Our team is at the forefront of all that we do and is the ultimate reason for our success


The story of our people


It is fair to say that Cobblestone was born in London and raised around the world! We have operated in and sourced talent from multiple countries around the world including UK, Taiwan, and Uganda. In 2020, in order to align with our growth ambitions and have access to talent from across the world, we moved our headquarters to the international city of Dubai. We have continued the growth from our new home, welcoming many different nationalities to the team every month. We passionately believe that talent can be found everywhere, and diversity of experiences, backgrounds and ideas are one of our greatest assets.

Our Culture

We are profoundly serious about work. But the team is cool, the work is fulfilling, and Thursdays allow for casual attire. We work together in a fascinating way. We tell it straight as it is, take feedback correctly, and have fun together. We are a group of people that are passionate about work and talk about it a lot more than we probably should but only because we enjoy it.

Inclusion and Diversity

At Cobblestone Energy, we do not define diversity by gender, race, background or any other form of social construct. Rather, by opinion, experience, perspective and potential. We focus on talent and strong cultural compatibility recognising that this can arise from different social backgrounds. We cherish and respect different opinions, perspectives, and styles of communication.

TAKE A PEEK INTO OUR LIVES

Cobblestone Energy consists of talented individuals that genuinely enjoy spending time together at work and beyond. We are very passionate about our work, and so are we about culture, sports, and all the things that make us, us. Here, we compile some updates and snapshots taken by our people at any point, either in or outside of work.
