Job Description


We’re looking for enterprising individuals with oil and gas knowledge, excited by the prospect of delivering significant deals in the Benelux market for one of the world’s biggest energy brands. It’s a highly visible role: the bigger the impact you make on our profitability, the greater your prospects here.

What’s the role?

In this externally facing role, you’ll be a deal maker: negotiating and sealing deals to buy and sell oil and gas – from initiation, and contract performance through to final settlements. You’ll call on a combination of commercial acumen and collaborative skills to forge valuable partnerships and create new customer value propositions in the commercial fuels space.

Credibility and integrity are vital – you’re representing us to many counterparties in the external market and exemplifying the way we do business. Ultimately, the deals you make will shape our reputation and drive our profitability.

Ours is a highly fluid environment – we’re looking for men and women who are excited – not daunted – by the pace and breadth of the role. The market is changing fast, with demands shifting from traditional sources of energy to renewables and CO2. If you have an eye for detail and you’re confident dealing with complex, dynamic data, you’ll love being part of the team.

About Shell

When you trade for Shell, you have an added edge – not just because of the strength of our brand but because we’re an established global energy supplier. We have a proven record in sourcing and supplying oil and gas, globally and we’re leading the way in finding innovative ways to produce and distribute cleaner, lower-carbon energy.


What we need from you

You’re of graduate calibre, ideally with a degree in a scientific discipline coupled with broad knowledge of the oil and gas market and industry. You’ve ideally worked in a hydrocarbon related role before working with physical oil and gas products.

Trading experience isn’t essential but you do need to convince us you have strong relevant experience in one or more of the following:

  • Supply chain planning and optimization,

  • Supply operations

  • Trading

  • Building B2B commercial relations

  • Scientific or business discipline background

You’ve demonstrated that you can negotiate and deliver complex deals and you ideally have experience of developing contracts strategically and of hands-on commercial contract negotiation.

In trading, your personal skills make all the difference. We look for people who are naturally engaging, at ease dealing with senior managers in external businesses and with instinctive all-round commercial awareness.


Our values

Shell is a company with shared values. Honesty, integrity, and respect aren't simply a strapline: they are a part of everything we do. What's more, Shell is an equal opportunities company, and we place the highest possible value on the diversity of our people and our inclusive approach.

People with an impairment

At Shell, we're all about top talent. End of story. We want to encourage those of you who may face an impairment to regard Shell as a place where you'll be fully supported to grow and develop your career. It's as simple as that.
