How do I apply

Shell offers various options for students and graduates to join us. It’s up to you to decide which one works best for you, and you’ll be asked to select your preferred route during the application process.

Internships (Bachelors/Masters/PhD degree)

Our internships are paid and fully assessed and will allow you to get involved in real projects specifically matched to your interests and abilities. This gives you an opportunity to experience what it is like to work for Shell, in real teams, alongside true professionals.

You’ll receive regular and structured performance evaluations from your mentor and direct supervisor, and you’ll find out what the energy industry is really like, from the inside.

To be eligible for this program, you must be an actively enrolled undergraduate, masters or PhD student with a cumulative GPA of at least 3.2 (on a 4.0 scale) who will complete at least one more semester of education following your internship. 

Shell Recruitment Day (Full Time Careers)

This is the route you should take to be considered for a full-time career in our Graduate Program.

Prior to the Shell Recruitment Day you’ll attend an informal non-assessed engagement where you’ll have further insight into Shell’s business operations.

The Shell Recruitment Day is a final face-to-face assessment day where we explore how well you’re able to manage various business scenarios.  We assess your capacity to analyze critical issues and identify the wider implications.

We also observe how you work with other people, how well you deal with change and to what extent you drive your own learning. You participate in various activities including a written task, group discussion, a case study analysis and presentation, with a final interview. Based upon the talents, skills and knowledge you display, you could be offered a full-time position in our Graduate Program.

To be eligible for this program you must be in your final year of study or have less than three years of work experience with a cumulative GPA of at least 3.2 (on a 4.0 scale).
