Accelerated career progression to Senior roles. An assessed internship is one way to get to know Shell from the inside, immerse yourself in our industry, and help you decide if a potential career here is right for you. An assessed internship is not an informal placement. It gives you 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, all professionals in their fields, whose perspectives will contribute to your understanding of our business and its demands and rewards. A supervisor and mentor will support you directly, and you will undertake regular assessments throughout your internship in order to ensure you get the most from the experience and receive feedback on your performance.

Internship Assessment - 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 our 10-12 week internship, you will have a formal mid-term review with your mentor and supervisor. Following this, there will be a final review where you’ll be asked to prepare a final presentation about your project and complete a separate case study analysis.
