Why should I join?
‘’I work with great people.’’
‘’Working on multi-million pound projects.’’
‘’A challenging, a volatile, exciting industry.’’
‘’You're part of something that's important, moving, evolving.’’
‘’You're taking to governments about their energy needs and how they'll provide energy for citizens.’’
‘’We create a fuel that's burning cleaner, has fewer emissions and that's key to making a society with fewer CO2 emissions.’’
‘’You've got fantastic exposure to some of the real critical issues going on in the energy industry right now.’’
‘’We all know the challenges facing not just oil and gas companies but energy companies in general. I wanted to be part of working out that solution.’’
‘’Right now I'm working on a project which is to do with carbon capture, which is a big deal, because as an energy company I feel we should be contributing and we should be looking into ways of making the ways we produce energy nowadays even more sustainable.’’
‘’My projects are interesting, my colleagues are so friendly and supportive and I see myself developing every day.’’
‘’I get the opportunity to come up with ideas. Sometimes they get executed, sometimes they don't. People value me for that.’’
‘’Delivering your goals in Shell requires a multi-discipline approach and also a commercial mindset, so I'm regularly working in teams of various sizes, and thinking beyond the technical is a must.’’
‘’You get the opportunity to move around, see different parts of the business, apply your knowledge in those areas.’’
‘’And if you look at some of our senior managers, and look at their careers in Shell, they've tried these things out, and I don't think a lot of companies let you do that.’’
‘’When I started, I knew nothing about reservoir engineering, which is what I do now. Yet within a year, I was working on key projects.’’
‘’If you don't want to be inside Engineering all your life, you can go to Commercial, or you can do a Finance or Marketing role.’’
‘’You can go everywhere you want. Only it's up to you to take those opportunities and to determine what you value the most.’’
