Company Description

Shell is a global group of energy and petrochemicals companies with over 90,000 employees in more than 70 countries and territories. In the US, we have operated for over a century and are a major oil and gas producer onshore and in the Gulf of Mexico, a recognized innovator in exploration and production technology, and a leading manufacturer and marketer of fuels, natural gas and petrochemicals. We deliver energy responsibly; operate safely with respect to our neighbours and work to minimize our environmental impact. We are in search of remarkable people who will thrive in a diverse and inclusive work environment to deliver exciting projects locally and globally. People who are passionate about exploring new frontiers. Innovators and pioneers. People with the drive to help shape our future. Because remarkable people achieve remarkable things.


We're open minded about whether you join us from an HR or Business background. You'll definitely need impressive OD skills, including experience of leading large-scale complex change programmes - whether that's through OD interventions or business process improvements. External consulting experience would be valuable but, above all, we're looking for evidence that you can diagnose business/organisation change issues and identify the right intervention.

Much hinges on your personal skills. We're keen to hear from men and women who are strong consultants: people who can cultivate excellent stakeholder relationships with a genuine desire to work in partnership and bring out the best in others. You have a talent for working in a diverse, international environment coupled with the courage, conviction and decision-making capability to deal with ambiguity. Finally, you're never afraid to challenge even the most senior of managers.

Shell is a company with shared values. Honesty, integrity, and respect aren't simply a strapline: they are a part of everything we do. What's more, Shell is an equal opportunities company, and we place the highest possible value on the diversity of our people and our inclusive approach. Join us and you'll belong to a world where you can feel pride in your achievements and propel your career with global opportunities.

We care deeply about fostering a truly diverse workplace. We believe in doing everything we can to make Shell as flexible, appealing and supportive a place for women to work as possible. And we've retained our title as a top employer for women in the Times again in 2017.

We help with things like our formal (and informal) flexible working. Like our global and transparent pay policies backed by a leadership team fully supportive of our diversity ambitions. And we'll help foster your career through our Women's Career Development programme and our extensive Women's Network.
