Shell Return to Work Programme

We’re delighted to be supporting Shell as they introduce their Return to Work Programme.

Starting in September 2018, this new six-month programme is aimed at anyone who’s taken a career break of a year or more and who want to re-immerse themselves back into professional life.

For the full programme overview, please visit the Shell website.

Why Shell has launched this programme?

Right from the top, there’s a firmly held view at Shell that diversity isn’t a nice-to-have. It’s at the very heart of the way they work. 

Through engaging work that fits around your life, Shell will help you sharpen your skills, refresh your knowledge and renew your confidence – by the end of the programme, you’ll be well prepared to take your career to the next level!

Who Shell is looking for?

This opportunity is aimed at women and men of all ages, from all backgrounds, who have taken time out of work for at least the last twelve months. Perhaps you’ve been raising a family or caring for someone. Maybe you’ve put your career on hold to deal with a personal setback.

Now, although you may still have personal commitments to juggle, you feel ready to re-establish your career. You’re looking for an engaging role that fits your personal commitments and befits your professional experience. 

We encourage and welcome applications from people with disabilities. If you require any reasonable adjustments to be made for the recruitment process please provide information below or if you would prefer to discuss this confidentially, please email us here.
