Benefits of working at Shell
Combine our creative, collaborative work environment with an impressive range of benefits and joining Shell becomes an inspired choice.
Your package will vary depending on your role and location but here are the main benefits we offer our employees:
Financial rewards and benefits programme
Your pay is an important part of your employment with Shell. In addition to your competitive starting salary, the company recognises and rewards individual performance.
Our benefits are aligned to local market practice and often include pension/retirement plans and healthcare coverage. Some locations offer subsidised services such as sports facilities, medical/dental care and car-parking, and in a number of countries, you may have the chance to participate in a Sharesave programme.
Shell Sharesave Scheme in the UK
Approved by the Inland Revenue and administered by the Halifax, our Sharesave Scheme allows Shell employees in the UK to save money and invest in Royal Dutch Shell plc.
You can decide how much you want to save (between £5 and £250 per month) and whether you want to opt for a 3 and/or 5 year scheme.
At the end of the savings period, you can either withdraw your savings in cash along with a tax-free bonus from the Halifax, or use the equivalent amount to buy shares in Royal Dutch Shell plc.
Balancing work and life
Wherever possible we will consider flexible working pattern requests, including working hours and in some cases, working from home.
Time off and time out
We offer market-aligned levels of annual leave and maternity/paternity leave allowances and we do all we can to accommodate career breaks and sabbaticals in countries where these are applicable. We also encourage you to step beyond the work environment to participate in social responsibility projects, employee interest groups or campus recruitment (which gives you the chance to meet university students).
Sports and social activities
Whatever your interests, there’s likely to be a Shell sports and social group that you can get involved with – for example, the Shell Sports Club, Shell Women’s Network, Shell African Network, Shell Disability Network and many more. In some locations around the world, we offer gym facilities, swimming pools, tennis courts, sailing and scuba diving.
Listening to our employees
We regularly conduct surveys among employees to identify any issues or areas for improvement. This can take the form of online surveys, discussion forums or interactive webcasts. For example, we regularly conduct the online ‘Shell People Survey’ on a global basis. This provides you with the opportunity to provide feedback, make suggestions on improving the work environment, input into developing policies and address areas of concern.
