I never saw myself working in the energy industry, but I can tell you now, this has been one of the most incredible opportunities I’ve had to make a meaningful difference in the world. I realised I just needed to do the thing I was passionate about, which was to make a positive impact through the work I do.
I have the opportunity to continuously learn something new, working across a spectrum of industries and solving a variety of business challenges within those fields. Our leadership team also takes a coaching approach, rather than a hierarchical one, when it comes to training and development, which encourages the team to take their career growth into their own hands.
Because the company has such a forward-thinking mindset, at the forefront of the energy transition, I feel empowered to be just as innovative and purpose-driven in my approach to sustainable energy solutions. As a result, Shell not only aligns with my career values but also inspires me on a daily basis.
We’re currently working on several projects to deliver cleaner energy, with a large focus in the area of hydrogen - figuring out what we need to do economically to make fuel-cell electric vehicles more accessible and available.
I love that in my daily life I can see the impact of the projects we work on and problems we solve - when I’m driving up to the gas pump, or looking at the wind turbines down the street, I’m able to see how it all comes together to provide energy for a global population.
