My name is Nilanjana Bhattacharya and I am a Human Resources Advisor for Projects & Technology (P&T) in Bangalore, India. In the summer of 2013, I was given the opportunity to undertake an assessed internship that placed me in the bitumen lab in Bangalore, where I worked for eight weeks. I was subsequently offered a job in the Civil and Structural Engineering team. Then, in early 2016, an opportunity arose to contribute to formulating talent strategy for P&T Bangalore in the light of the BG Integration and refreshed vision for Bangalore. This moved me away from my engineering background to work on my stakeholder engagement skills and business acumen. I’ve always found that Shell gives you the chance to work on complex and challenging problems from the start of your career. At Shell, I’ve taken inspiration from the women around me – the engineers, geoscientists, researchers – many of whom are also mothers, wives and daughters.
