Your challenge at Shell

In 2018 we generated earnings of $24 billion, and invested $986 million in R&D. The scale of our operations requires the highest standard of financial professionalism as we seek to maximize the return for all the people who have an investment in Shell: Staff, shareholders, governments and communities. 

Your Graduate Programme in Finance:
As a graduate in one of Shell’s Finance teams you will help drive profit and shape new financial processes to ensure our continued success. Working closely with teams from across the business, you’ll experience the end-to-end value chain from financial planning, mergers and acquisitions to treasury and sales promotions.
