At Shell, we’re developing all kinds of ideas to help meet the growing demand for energy. And we’re looking for ambitious students and graduates to help us do more.

Shell is a global group of energy and petrochemical companies, employing approximately 87,000 people and operating in more than 70 countries and territories. Our aim is to meet the energy needs of society in ways that are economically, socially and environmentally viable, now and in the future. Our focus on innovation and technology has made us a leading manufacturer, distributor and marketer of refined petroleum products.

Internship program:

An internship during the junior years of your education is an excellent way to gain exposure to real-world problems and to pick up lessons that cannot be found in the textbooks. It is an important step towards gaining an early competitive edge by applying academic concepts and principles using technology that may not be available on campus.

Shell’s internship programme provides you the opportunity to gain superlative experiences at an organisation that drives technological innovation to unlock cleaner energy for our future.

Join a project team alongside Shell employees that excel in their fields. We’ll provide you a mentor that will support you directly and ensure you develop towards gaining a richer understanding of your field of study.

What we look for:

We are looking for ambitious students to help us tackle the energy challenge.

You must be an actively enrolled student who will complete at least one more year of education following your internship.

There will be specific skill requirements for your chosen internship area. But whatever your role, there are certain qualities you’ll need if you’re going to succeed at Shell.

Above all else, you should enjoy being challenged. You also need to be good at absorbing information, analysing problems, making objective decisions and coming up with original ideas. You should have the drive, confidence and resilience to get things done, the flexibility to work well as part of a team and the credibility to influence others.

Shell matches you into a particular role based on your skills, so you will not be required to apply for a specific internship position.

*Please note that you must be lawfully authorized to work in the country in which you’re assigned to work in the Program.
