Consistent, top quality customer service is at the heart of what we do. That's why we're looking for bright, ambitious, business-minded people with a passion for innovation to help take our business to new levels of success.
If this sounds like something you can help deliver, then you could look forward to a great future as part of our select group of Self-employed Retailers.
We will provide you with excellent training and support to help you make the most of your talents.

The retail opportunity
Running one or a cluster of Shell service stations is a major commitment. Many of our service stations offer a range of fuel and non-fuel products and services and are open 24/7, 365 days a year, so you will need to be confident that your team can maintain world-class service standards round the clock.
Motivated and well organised, you will set the standard for the business under your control. You will need to be the kind of person who can think innovatively, inspire professionalism and get on with all kinds of people - not least of all your customers. Remember, gaining their repeat business will be absolutely vital to your success; it will be up to you and your team to win them over through service delivery, novelty and innovation.
As a Self-employed Retailer, you will bring your skills, business approach, enthusiasm, commitment and your passion for innovation, while we supply the service stations, fuel, support and a full retailer-training program. In short, we'll be working together to grow the business within an honest, open environment.
