Employer Summary

At Shell, we believe in offering a competitive and contemporary benefits package that focuses on individual choice based on personal needs and preferences.

Our “Care and Protection” benefits emphasize improving the health and quality of life for our employees and their families, as well as flexibility and personal development. We offer competitive annual leave packages and do all we can to accommodate career breaks and sabbaticals in countries where these are applicable. To help you balance work and life, we consider flexible working pattern requests whenever possible; including working hours and in some cases working from home.

In addition to annual leave benefits, Shell is proud to be the first major integrated oil and gas company to introduce a new global standard of 16 weeks paid maternity leave. This initiative is intended to support working mothers and their families. Furthermore, Shell has broadened the scope to include fathers and adoptive parents. This change has been made to provide employees greater flexibility in balancing work and family and to ensure that we can attract and retain the diverse talent we need to continue as an industry leader.

Our "Wealth" benefits include Pension, Savings, and Employee Share Purchase Plans. These programs promote financial security through competitive employer contributions and attractive opportunities for employee participation.
