An innovative place to work

There's never been a more exciting time to work at Shell. Everyone here is helping solve one of the biggest challenges facing the world today: bringing the benefits of energy to everyone on the planet, whilst managing the risks of climate change.

Join us and you'll add your talent and imagination to a business with the power to shape the future - whether by investing in renewables, exploring new ways to store energy or developing technology that helps the world to use energy more efficiently.

An inclusive place to work

To power progress together, we need to attract and develop the brightest minds and make sure every voice is heard. Here are just some of the ways we're nurturing an inclusive environment - one where you can express your ideas, extend your skills and reach your potential...
  • We're creating a space where people with disabilities can excel through transparent recruitment process, workplace adjustments and ongoing support in their roles. Feel free to let us know about your circumstances when you apply and we'll take it from there.
  • We're closing the gender gap - whether that's through action on equal pay or by enabling more women to reach senior roles in engineering and technology.
  • We're striving to be a pioneer of an inclusive and diverse workplace, promoting equality for employees regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
  • We consider ourselves a flexible employer and want to support you finding the right balance. We encourage you to discuss this with us in your application.

A rewarding place to work

Combine our creative, collaborative environment and global operations with an impressive range of benefits and joining Shell becomes an inspired career choice.

We're huge advocates for career development. We'll encourage you to try new roles and experience new settings. By pushing people to reach their potential, we frequently help them find skills they never knew they had, or make career moves they never thought possible.


We are looking for a seasoned improvement leader who is a self-starter with outstanding communication and influencing skills, coupled with deep strategic/tactical thinking and the ability to effectively manage stakeholders at all levels in the organization.

In addition to that, you will bring:
  • A CI (Agile and Lean) certification at Master level
  • CI deployment leadership experience in complex, multi-cultural, multi-disciplined global environments.
  • Successful track record in business leadership roles with global scope as well as consulting experience, building a sustainable CI culture.
