The Shell Graduate Program

The Shell Graduate Program is designed to help you make the most of your potential, both professionally and personally. From day one, you’ll have a supervisor and mentor to help you establish and execute an Individual Development Plan outlining your career goals and how you’ll achieve them. This plan dictates how much time you’ll spend in the program, which can be anywhere from 2-3 years. Throughout this time, you’ll be placed in a wide range of hands-on roles with competence-based tasks, challenging and inspiring you to discover your strengths, develop your skills and broaden your experience in various real-world situations.

This program will also give you the opportunity to hone your expertise and leadership abilities and obtain industry-recognized qualifications through formal training courses, discipline-specific e-learning modules and world-class workshops. In addition, you’ll receive support from an international network of seasoned industry professionals. To monitor and track your performance in the program, your supervisor and mentor will conduct regular progress checks. And upon successful completion of your final review, you’ll be placed in the Shell Advanced Technical Program, which will prepare you for a more senior role at our company.

Project Engineer

In this position, you’ll have the opportunity to take part in the world’s most innovative projects. You might find yourself working on gas-to-liquid plants, floating liquefied natural gas projects, or offshore oil drilling and production platforms. Projects with a scale and ambition that can’t be found anywhere else in our industry. As part of our team, you’ll strive to safely deliver hard-to-reach oil and gas reserves across the globe. Alternate between a hands-on role of executing capital projects within Downstream Manufacturing, and a more supporting role that involves serving as an enabler through one of the consulting functions.

The Projects business unit takes the engineering concepts selected for major projects and turns them into reality. This involves managing virtually all aspects of a project’s execution, including engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning. The unit is also responsible for project performance as measured by the key dimensions of safety, cost, delivery schedule and technical integrity.

The SURF (Subsea, Umbilical, Risers and Flowline) group in P&T Deepwater Projects is responsible for providing subsea technology solutions for all major deepwater projects in the Americas region (including the Gulf of Mexico and Brazil) as well as emerging deepwater basins in French Guinea, Canada and other areas. This group also serves as a Center of Excellence for deepwater subsea technology development and deployment in projects across Shell.

Training and development opportunities

In your learning journey at Shell, you’ll spend 2-3 years on competence-based tasks and a formal education course with the support of technical coaches. To ensure you stay on track, progress checks will be conducted every 6 months.
