Shell Assessed Internship

An Assessed Internship is one way to get to know Shell from the inside and immerse yourself in our industry. It will also help you decide whether a career with Shell is right for you.


You’ll join a project team and work alongside Shell employees, all professionals in their fields. Their perspectives will contribute to your understanding of our business, its demands and rewards. A supervisor and mentor will support you directly. You will undertake regular assessments throughout your internship. This is to ensure you get the most from the experience and receive feedback on your performance.


Lasting 12 weeks, our internships are available to students in their pre-final year of study. The 12 week Intern program commences in late November and finishes mid February.


Applications for Shell’s Assessed Internship open in July 2017 and close in August 2017.

Quotes from recent Interns in response to the question "what are the positives of the job and employer?"

Shell has a great internship program that gives your projects that have a real value to the company, the internship is managed very closely and gave me more opportunities to integrate into organisation than i thought would be possible for an intern. Overall was fantastic 

Exposure to business, projects and people. Development of technical and interpersonal skills.

A very challenging and stimulating environment.
