Return to Work Programme - Shell UK

Reignite your career with our Shell UK Return to Work programme, aimed at experienced professionals who have taken a career break of at least one year.

Starting in September 2019, this six-month programme is aimed at anyone who's taken a career break of a year or more and who wants to re-immerse themselves back into professional life.


You'll need to be eligible to work in the UK from September 2019 to March 2020, available to join us in the office for the equivalent of three days a week and have knowledge, skills and experience that align to at least one of the disciplines participating including:

  • IT - (80 Strand, London/ Shell Centre, Waterloo)
  • Exploration - (Shell Centre, London)
  • Upstream - (Tullos, Aberdeen)
  • Contracting & Procurement - (Tullos, Aberdeen)
  • Shipping & Maritime - (80 Strand, London / Shell Centre, Waterloo)


We're no stranger to taking on Returners there are many, many of us already working here so we understand the concerns you may have and the hurdles you may face.


Here's what you can expect from us:

  • Engaging work that matches your skills.
  • A contract for the equivalent of at least three days a week.
  • Support from a manager who's been trained to help you get the best out of the programme - plus a mentor and a buddy.
  • Clear points of contact before and during your placement so you can tap into support and navigate the world of Shell.
  • Knowledge sharing sessions and regular check-ins to see how you're progressing.
  • Flexibility around hours - you may well have personal priorities outside work, so we won't expect you to work a typical 9-5.
  • Clarity on what we expect from you; regular check ins.
  • Practical advice with care arrangements, whether for children or anyone else you care for (via Bright Horizons, our external partners).


Through engaging work that fits around your life, we'll help you sharpen your skills, refresh your knowledge and renew your confidence - by the end of the programme, you'll be well prepared to take your career to the next level.
