An Internship is an excellent way to get to know Shell from the inside and immerse yourself in the energy industry. It can also help you decide what career is right for you. You’ll have full day-to-day involvement in actual projects, selected to match your interests and abilities.

You’ll join a project team and work alongside Shell employees who are all professionals in their fields. Their perspectives will contribute to your understanding of our business, its demands and rewards.

A supervisor and mentor will support you directly and you’ll undertake regular assessments throughout your internship to ensure you get the most from the experience.

What we look for:

You’ll be evaluated on your capacity for analysis, decision-making and creating workable solutions, as well as your drive, enthusiasm, resilience and confidence.

During an Internship, you’ll have a formal mid-term review with your mentor and supervisor.

Your success in the Internship could result in you being offered a full time role.

    Gamified Assessment

    After you’ve submitted your application, you’ll be notified to complete an online assessment once the game goes live.

    Screening Round

    For successful candidates after the gamified assessment, this short, screening call is an opportunity for you to tell us about yourself and your qualifications.

  • Stage 2 - Final Assessment

    This is the last assessment stage. It consists of a face to face/virtual session with two professionals at Shell. During this session you will be asked to discuss your thoughts on a case study, which you will have a chance to review 48 hours prior to the session. You will need to read and prepare for this, but don’t worry, more information will be provided closer to the time. On the day of your assessment, you will be assigned a topic relating to your case study and then given 20 minutes to prepare a 10-minute presentation. This presentation will be followed by questions and additional scenarios from the assessors for up to 20 minutes.

  • Shell Internship

    Following the successful completion of the assessments, you will be offered a place on the Internship Program.
