Career progression underpins our entire business strategy. We give you the support and training to grow and develop, because we recognise the crucial part every employee plays in our success.
As a Shell employee, you’ll benefit from our professional training and development programmes. You’ll also receive on-going support to meet your individual needs and aspirations. And if your sights are set high, we provide dedicated Leadership Programmes. At Shell, however, career progression isn't confined to specific initiatives; it's part of our everyday life.
You can progress your career with Shell because we’re:
Operating in over 90 countries, we’re able to provide a vast range of opportunities. You could expect to work with colleagues from all around the world. You’ll also benefit from the chance to exchange expertise, be exposed to projects in every corner of the globe, and be part of a highly diverse international team that is making a real difference to world challenges today.
At Shell, you’ll be encouraged to explore and fulfil your potential. From on-the-job learning and training for recognised professional qualifications to personal development programmes, ‘buddy’ schemes and regular appraisals, we help make sure you reach your personal and professional goals.
We’ll give you every opportunity to stretch yourself and take on increasing responsibilities. The energy market is highly competitive so you can expect constant challenges in your work.
The work environment at Shell is characterised by forward-thinking. We’re passionate about innovation and actively encourage new ideas to help direct change and deliver success. We have processes in place across the organisation to help us innovate.
GameChanger, for instance, is a global process that enables anyone, anywhere, to propose, nurture and mature ground-breaking ideas to impact the business.
You’ll have every opportunity to pursue the possibilities provided by our technical and commercial operations. It’s not just our jobs that are diverse. Whether you’re working on a remote offshore oil rig or an inner-city service station, the same principles apply: respect and appreciation of differences in culture, nationality, religion and taste.
In this way we learn, develop and share the benefits with our customers, employees, shareholders and the countries and communities where we operate.
At Shell, we’ve created a working culture in which all differences are valued: from age and ethnicity to thinking styles and beliefs. Our aim is to make everyone feel involved, respected and connected – where the richness of our different ideas, backgrounds and perspectives work together to create stronger business value.
To us, diversity and inclusion are interrelated. To help achieve our individual and global goals we maintain a focus on both. We reduce the barriers that stand in the way of full participation to help unleash the creativity that comes from differing ideas and experience.
You’ll feel motivated and secure in your ongoing career progression because we recognise and reward your achievements. Everyone has different priorities. In recognition of that, we make every effort to provide the kind of rewards and benefits that will complement your own particular needs and lifestyle.
