Shell Graduate Programme: Application Process

Shell Graduate Programme: Application Process

October 12, 2019 17 By Stanley Isaacs


Hi. I’m Deanna. Welcome to Shell. Today I’m going
to take you through the steps for applying
to the Shell Graduate Programme. Just some tips from me before we start. We’re so much more
than an energy company, so do your research
and update your CV accordingly. Here at Shell we are searching for ways
to meet the energy needs of the future. Taking on challenges
to help the world progress is what we have done
since the day we started. You’ll find loads of stuff
on the Shell website to help you find a programme
suited to you, including the degree matcher,
which pretty much does what it says. It guides you on a match
between your degree discipline with our skill pool disciplines. When you’re ready,
the next step is the application form, which takes about ten minutes to complete. If you’re on LinkedIn, save time by simply
pulling across your profile. After you’ve submitted
your online application, you’ll go through to stage one, where you’re asked
to complete three online assessments. You’ll get an email
to guide you through this. But in a nutshell these are: 1, A general cognitive test with numerical
and verbal abstract reasoning. 2, An assessment of your working style. You’ll need to accomplish
these online assessments within five days of receiving them. Applicants
who are successfully shortlisted will then receive an email inviting them to progress
to the On-Demand Video Interview. A self-recorded video submission. This is where you can show us who you are by answering interview questions
from our graduates. You’ll need to submit this
within ten days of receiving the invite. Our Graduate Recruitment Team
will then review your application and let you know if you are through
to the next and final step. This is our live virtual session. Essentially an online interview
with two Shell employees and a case study to discuss. This is where you have a chance
to get to know us and for us to get
to know you even better. So expect this part
to take around two hours. We’ll tell you more about this
closer to the time, so you can prepare. If you’re successful, first of all, congratulations. We’ll invite you
to your nearest Shell office, so you can see where you’ll be working, your future manager
and other successful graduates. It’s a great opportunity
to really get a feel for the place. That’s it from us for now. You’ve now got
the key information you need to get started with your application. Good luck and perhaps the next time
we meet it will be as colleagues.
