Company profile

Shell is a global group of energy and petrochemicals companies with far-reaching and wide business interests - from oil exploration to power generation to consumer services. We play a key role in helping to meet the world’s growing demand for energy in economically, environmentally and socially responsible ways.

Our commitment to technology and innovation continues to be at the core of our strategy. As energy projects become more complex and more technically demanding, we believe our engineering expertise will be a deciding factor in the growth of our businesses.

Our key strengths include the development and application of technology, the financial and project-management skills that allow us to deliver large field development projects, and the management of integrated value chains.

Student profile

The application process for our graduate programmes is rigorous, but is designed to enable the most talented graduates to stand out. After submitting an online application, you will be invited to complete our online assessments and our on demand interview. Successful candidates will be invited to final stage of the selection process in a virtual assessment. This stage includes a live virtual case study session with two Shell employees who will host the discussion. You will be assigned a topic relating to an aspect of your case, and then asked to prepare a presentation.

Through this process we will be assessing candidates’:
Capacity – the intellectual ability to analyse and apply unfamiliar information to complex situations;
Achievement – the ability to identify and manage resources in order to deliver results;
Relationship-building – the ability to work within, and lead, diverse teams
