Working at Shell
Learning, development and support
“Everyone is listened to from the CEO down to the graduate.”
“You are encouraged to go out there, see what you would like to learn and why.”
“It’s just a continuous journey of learning.”
“What I really like about Shell is that they give a lot of opportunities for new hires to develop yourself.”
“They very much structure your learning to you and your job and what your qualities are.”
“When you start as a graduate you will be part of a global graduate scheme, which is a very structured program and one of the best in the industry.”
“Although it’s structured there is a flexibility, so you can choose and pick a bit what courses you want to do.”
“You can also get the opportunity to go on external courses, go courses organised by external universities, professional bodies.”
“But also there’s soft skills training, so things like communication and leadership, which I think complement, even for people who are technical such as engineers, really complement your development as a professional.”
“I have a feedback session with my line manager every week and I’m showing him what my progress is.”
“They want to let you discover what’s right for you in your role. They’re not going to say, you’re going to do this role, they give you the opportunity to look at different roles and see where you fit in.”
“And you discuss this with your line manager who can secure the support and the resource for you.”
“I know for myself working abroad on two of my three placements so far, it can get a little bit homesick being away, and the people and my colleagues have definitely helped me through that.”
“Day in, day out you’re working with really intelligent, really motivated people that also really want you to learn and develop as a person.”
“They’re also more than willing to invest time in you, to invest time in your development, in your knowledge learning to help you really be the best that you can be.”
