Shell Human Resources is pivotal in how we optimise our business operations
Human Resources at Shell is a diverse discipline - providing support to change management; defining and delivering team development programmes; leading projects in staff planning; and promoting diversity and inclusiveness throughout the wider Shell community. HR offers the chance to gain international exposure and begin a rewarding career in the energy industry.
While learning the processes and systems of our business, you’ll benefit from continuous on-the-job training and access to a diverse network of professionals. You will ideally have an instinct for boundary pushing thinking and dealing with complex business-related issues. You’ll gain exposure to real projects that influence the way Shell’s HR team, and the company overall, consistently delivers professional excellence worldwide.
Meet the manager
For Tessa de Mönnink-van Westrenen, Human Resources Manager for Retail Americas and Global Retail Marketing, the fact that her career at Shell has been both varied and international is what makes it such a rewarding job. “I’ve had a very varied career path,” she says. “That attracts me. I want to stay interested.”
One of Tessa’s proudest moments came while serving as Global Recruitment Manager in Malaysia, when she introduced a new process of recruitment that sourced candidates globally, rather than having each country select candidates from only the local talent pool. “That makes me feel really good,” she says, “Because I could influence the global agenda.”
This open environment, which gives employees a ‘seat at the table’ with senior executives and management, is something that Tessa says is particularly important to the success of Shell and its employees. “You have to forge your own destiny.”
