The Shell Group (including all its subsidiaries as well as JVs in which it holds a stake), hereafter referred to as “Shell”, has a commitment to sourcing candidates directly and as such we do not accept speculative CV’s from agencies. We do, however, work with a defined list of preferred suppliers who may be invited to support us in sourcing candidates for particular roles, but, in line with our Preferred Supplier List, we only pay agency fees where we have a signed agreement in place and an agency has been instructed by a member of the Shell Central HR Recruitment team.
We do not pay agency fees where speculative and unsolicited CV’s are submitted to Shell and/or its employees by any means other than through our recruitment portal. Where this is not observed Shell reserves the right to contact these candidates directly and initiate discussions without payment of any agency fee.
Submission of any unsolicited CV’s and proposals to Shell will be deemed evidence of full and unlimited acceptance of this Agency policy.
