Shell Graduate Scheme Application

Shell Graduate Scheme Application and Interview Process

The student and graduate recruitment process at Shell typically takes between 6-12 weeks from first application to the offer stage. There may be regional variations and the applicant’s availability to attend assessments can prolong the time scale. Prospective applicants should apply as early as possible (from September for start dates the following year). The recruitment process consists of the following:

  • Online application
  • Online assessment (part 1)
  • Online assessment (part 2)
  • Interview / Telephone interview
  • Final Assessment (usually a Shell Recruitment Day)

Online Application

Graduate candidates must complete the Global Graduate Application Form found on the Shell careers website to apply for a graduate scheme. This must be sent, together with a candidate’s CV, to Shell’s recruitment team.

Online Assessment (Part 1)7

The first part of Shell’s online assessment is a series of competency-based questions. This introduces the candidates to the business informally and gauges the applicant’s thought process, to see if it is in line with that of the company’s. You will be put through a series of scenario-based events.[purchase_link id=”2469″ style=”button” color=”red” text=”Dowload Complete Pack”]


Online Assessment (Part 2)

8The second part consists of two tasks: the decision-making task and the problem-solving task. The decision-making task assesses how you may respond to common situations that Shell graduates face. The problem-solving task is a Shell Cubiks numerical assessment. It consists of 18 questions; however, the general consensus is that it is near-impossible to answer all the questions in time. Prioritize accuracy over speed.

In total, Part 2 should take about 45 minutes to complete.[purchase_link id=”2462″ style=”button” color=”red” text=”Download Complete Question” direct=”true”]
