We close business areas once they are filled and this page will be updated accordingly. We still have a number of roles remaining on the Shell Graduate Programme with start dates for 2016. If you wish to start in 2016, please state this on your CV prior to application submission.

Closing dates:

Shell Assessed Internships: While applications are open from the 1st September, we will begin to review applications in early December therefore you may not hear about your application until after December. All business areas will close on the 31st January 2017.

Shell Graduate Programme (Shell Recruitment Day): We recruit and review applications on a rolling basis and will close a business area once filled. All business areas will close on the 31st March 2017.

Applying to Shell outside the UK

In general, applicants should apply via the website of the country where they would like to work.

If you have the right to work in a specific country, you can indicate your preferred work location during your application and also list alternative locations that you may consider if your first preference is not available.

You can make only one application to Shell in any 12 month period and the application process for the Shell Graduate Programme and the Shell Assessed Internship are the same in all countries. We are particularly interested in hearing from candidates for technical roles in The Netherlands, Malaysia and Qatar.
