If you don’t find a suitable vacancy, you can sign up to create a personal profile.

Your details will also be available to our recruiters who may get in touch when they have a suitable vacancy.

Discover and apply online

If you’ve previously applied for a role with Shell, you can go straight to your personal profile and submit another application for a new role. If you’ve not been in touch, please register and create a profile. You can then submit your application. You should get confirmation that we’ve received it within 48 hours. You can check the status of your application by logging on and clicking the “Application status” link.

Connect with us at interview

If your application is successful, in most instances we arrange for a telephone interview to take place within two weeks. This usually lasts between 45 minutes and an hour. Let your curious side show and ask us your questions to discover more about the role and what it’s like working at Shell.

We assess your potential impact

If your interview is successful, we will invite you for an assessment within a period of around three weeks. It will either be a behaviour-based structured interview, a professional interview or a presentation assessing your competencies. In some instances it will include a scenario-based exercise. This should all last around four hours. You will have the opportunity to ask us any further questions about things such as rewards and benefits. We will try to notify you of the outcome within a few days.

Please note that timings are indicative. A high volume of applications can result in the process taking a little longer. Neither Shell, nor any organisation that recruits on our behalf, asks for money or payments from applicants at any point in the application process. Everyone who is successful in gaining an offer of employment from Shell, either directly or indirectly, is required to go through a formal recruitment process.
