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 to four 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 additional questions about things such as rewards and benefits. We will try to notify you of the outcome within a few days.

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.
