Connect with us at interview

If your application is successful, in most instances we arrange for a telephone interview to take place within two to four 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 (in person or virtual depending on applicant location) within three weeks. It will either be a behavioral based structured interview, a professional interview, or a presentation assessing your competencies. In some instances it will include a scenario-based exercise. This can take up to 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 organization 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.

Before taking any online interview during the application process, it is important to ensure that both your desktop/mobile device and your internet speed meet minimum requirements. Please refer to this guide to ensure an optimal experience.
