Shell – Why Work For Us?

There has never been a more exciting time to work in the energy industry. With a career at Shell, you’ll have a part to play in uniquely innovative projects through which you’ll be able to gain unbeatable experience.

We have a track record of world-firsts, from Shell Pearl GTL, the world’s largest gas-to-liquids plant, to Perdido, the world’s deepest offshore oil drilling and production platform, and Prelude, the world’s first floating liquefied natural gas facility.

These engineering achievements are projects from a business that genuinely promotes progress, where you will be constantly encouraged to explore new ways of thinking and working.

We are a global group of energy and petrochemicals companies with over 90,000 employees in more than 70 countries and territories. Operating in the US since 1912, Shell is a major oil and gas producer onshore and in the Gulf of Mexico and a leading manufacturer and marketer of fuels, natural gas and petrochemicals.

Innovation has made Shell a company of firsts: from sailing the first oil tanker through the Suez Canal in 1892, to designing and building the first floating liquefied natural gas facility today. We deliver ground-breaking projects and work in many challenging environments to produce oil and gas including oil sands, tight formations, deepwater and subarctic. We are also one of the world’s largest suppliers and pioneers of LNG (liquefied natural gas). Today we spend more annually on research and development than any other international oil company. This enables us to stay at the forefront of delivering technology solutions.

Sustainability is central throughout our businesses. Shell has voluntarily reported on our environmental and social performance since 1997– focusing on the challenges that most affect our business performance and matter most to our key stakeholders.

Safety is always our first priority. We aim to have zero incidents that harm people, or put our neighbours or facilities at risk.

Strong core values of honesty, integrity and respect for people drive our performance-based culture – fostering collaboration and inclusion across local and global work teams.

Rewarding career progression and development opportunities combined with competitive compensation and benefits to help balance your work and personal needs.


And our local and global scope of operations – spanning exploration, production, manufacturing and sales – will provide you a wealth of opportunities to work on exciting projects, shape your career path and discover your full potential.  You’ll have the opportunity to work with people from all around the world, sharing expertise and points of view that will enrich your experience.

The scale of our challenge is exciting too. Global demand for energy is rapidly rising, and outpacing supply.  At Shell, we are committed to developing smart solutions to help close this gap and build a better energy future all around the world.

That’s why we’re in search of remarkable professionals, graduates and interns to join us. People who are curious to try new ways of working.  Adventurous enough to continuously push the boundaries. Who have the tenacity to drive ideas forward.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Shell in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Recruiting lead and HR4HR lead conducted a phone screen to assess my interest and clarify my experience. I was then set up for a face to face panel interview with 2 sets of HR managers (structured interview and professional interview). They were prompt, professional and courtesy. Allowing me time to ask questions at each interval. After the interviews, another HR manager took me to lunch, for a more informal get to know you session, there were a few other people there from the HR function, which I found useful and informative. They followed up with me regarding the outcome of the interview within about a week.
