pockets of oil from a single drilling platform. Or designing a gas rig that runs on less power
than it takes to boil a kettle. As individuals, we all bring a unique set of qualities to the
business, but there are certain key attributes we look for in our people.
At Shell we use a competency based assessment methodology which focuses on CAR:

identify issues, absorb information,
make judgements and
propose solutions.

resilience and confidence are
you someone who can always
get things done?

We look for rounded characters with
