We’re huge advocates of career development at Shell. Every four years, we encourage all our employees to try a new role and apply their skills in a new setting. It’s because we believe in developing people to their fullest, often unrealised, potential. Our employees frequently find skillsets within them they never knew they had, or make big career moves they never knew they wanted. It doesn’t just make for fulfilled people; it also makes for a thoroughly cohesive and forward-looking company.

Here at My Varied Career, we shine the spotlight on four employees from across the Shell world who really made the most of the opportunities presented to them, discovering personal and professional traits that would create far-reaching prospects. Read their stories below.
