Job Description

Where you fit in?

As a member of the Program and Project Management (P&PM) Capability Center at Shell, you will have the opportunity to work in a challenging but rewarding environment that is fast paced and changing fundamentally as Shell transforms its business to meet the ambition to be a net-zero emissions energy business by 2050, whilst delivering a world class business case that has a strong societal license to operate. In your program and project management career at Shell you will be expected to enact change and deliver value globally across business lines and geographies.

Project Managers plan, execute, and control a project or set of related projects to meet identified business requirements and deliver business value, through acquiring and utilizing the necessary resources and skills, within agreed parameters of cost, timescales, risk, quality and benefits.

What is the role?

You Will Be Expected To

  • Agree and deliver a body of work, organised into programmes, projects and workstreams to agreed time, cost, quality, risk and benefit profiles, delivered within Shell’s standards and controls framework;
  • Proactively analyse variances against plan to assess trends threatening agreed scope, time, cost, and quality commitments. Identify signs that a project may be at risk and take appropriate action;
  • Engage internal and external stakeholders such as users, customers or suppliers to fully benefit from the delivered products, services and changes;
  • Develop and execute appropriate change and engagement plans to achieve necessary behaviour changes in order to maximise benefits;

  • Ensure that all deliverables, whether software, hardware, processes, products or business change are fit for purpose, meet all relevant requirements and are effectively transitioned to support and business-as-usual; and
  • Ensure that the business value intended by the work is explicit, agreed and delivered.

As your career in Shell progresses, you will be exposed to opportunities both across our diverse lines of business and in our business IT and enterprise IT functions, as well as progressively more challenging assignments that develop your capabilities.
