Job Description

Bring us your knowledge of UK indirect tax and we'll give you a chance to engage with some key figures - our senior stakeholders - as well as guiding other Advisors and Finance Operations colleagues

What's the role?

On a day-to-day basis, your role will be to undertake indirect tax advice, shaping, structuring and support for Shell functions operating in the UK & Ireland. Through well-aligned end-to-end process designs, you'll help ensure fiscal compliance and effective risk management through effective decision making, as well as optimising VAT-related cashflows.

Company Description

Shell started operations in the United Kingdom more than 110 years ago. Since then we have grown into a leading innovative oil and gas company that rewards its employees by investing heavily in their careers and learning. Our people are our greatest asset, and our commitment to your career will see you thrive in a work environment that offers an industry-leading development programme. When your ideas travel, Shell will benefit and innovation will thrive. Shell has a key role to play in helping meet the UK's growing energy demand, whilst using innovative technologies to develop cleaner energy. We are the largest FTSE 100 company in the UK by market capitalisation, and make a significant contribution to the UK economy. As well as processing 35% of the gas coming into the UK, we serve more than four million customers at our filling stations each week. Shell employs some 6,400 skilled staff as well as many contractors.


What we need from you

We're open minded about where you've gained your experience; perhaps working with another multinational, or with a professional firm. What we'll value most is your in-depth knowledge of UK VAT law including an understanding of UK customs and excise rules. You've shown you can manage VAT risks, balancing risk with business objectives to make recommendations that are objective, practical, technically appropriate and supportive of business goals.

As for your personal skills: we're keen to hear from men and women who've demonstrated imagination and creativity in the way they evaluate issues and develop possible solutions. You've reached the point in your career where you're confident enough in your own skills to support, advise and nurture junior staff.

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

Women's perspective

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

People with an impairment

At Shell, we're all about top talent. End of story. We want to encourage those of you who may face an impairment to regard Shell as a place where you'll be fully supported to grow and develop your career. It's as simple as that. If you'd like to apply, just let us know about your circumstances. We can support you throughout the process: from application, to interview, to your first day of a rewarding career with us.
