Smiling graduate during a meeting

Through Shell’s pioneering Graduate Programme talented and motivated candidates become fully-fledged Shell professionals in two to five years.

As you nurture your knowledge with structured learning and broaden your experience on groundbreaking projects, you are supported by an excellent mentorship programme. With constructive check-ins throughout the programme you will never be overwhelmed by the workload, and we will assign tasks that challenge you positively.

Straight away you are given stimulating, hands-on roles and an increasing scope of responsibilities that will propel your career straight after exiting the programme. When joining Shell you are offered a comprehensive Onboarding Programme that systematically exposes you to all areas of the organisation, familiarising you with our company values.

All this is achieved via an overarching structure comprised of several interrelated stages, including rotations, company integration, local and global development, progress checks and assessments.

Whether you join the Technical, Commercial or Corporate Function area of the programme, you will receive unparalleled formal training throughout.

Two ways into Shell

For career opportunities there are two ways into Shell via an assessed internship or a Shell Recruitment Day.

An Assessed Internship

Discover what the energy industry is like by exploring new opportunities while experiencing life at Shell. Regular assessments will help you and us make informed decisions about your future.

Shell Recruitment Day

The Shell Recruitment Day is the final stage of the assessment process. We will assess your capacity to analyse critical issues, observe how you work with other people and how you deal with change.
