Job Description

For an accomplished IT leader in application management there’s huge scope here to build capability for projects across the globe by skilfully developing both our people and our products.

What’s the role?

Your remit will be to manage Shell’s Retail Site Automation Solutions and Applications Portfolio for Europe & South Africa – people, processes, tools and data. It’s a role you can really make your own: you’ll enjoy end-to-end ownership of the portfolio capability and accountability for all inflight application management projects in your region.

There’s huge scope to make an impact. The main challenge is to build the capability for your portfolio through developing people, sharpening technology and improving products. When it comes to product delivery and improvement, you’ll need to ensure a seamless fit between process, capability, and solutions.

Strong stakeholder management will be crucial. Working in an Agile environment, you’ll interface closely with suppliers and colleagues in IT management, PD , and Mobile Cloud Computing/Architecture to find continuous improvement opportunities that make a difference to the bottom line.


What we need from you

We’re keen to hear from men and women with broad IT management experience, especially when it comes to project delivery and planning/managing IT application development. Positive and committed to achieving deadlines, you have a record of successfully delivering against targets. In particular, you’ve shown you can bring out the best in others, leading and developing large, diverse teams to provide a first-class IT development and deployment service.

Shell is a diverse, fast-moving, global business so if you’re going to drive value, it’s vital you have the skills to deal with ambiguity, adapt to shifting priorities, and work collaboratively with suppliers, decision-makers and peers in a geographically dispersed, cross-cultural environment.

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.

Join us and you’ll belong to a world where you can feel pride in your achievements and propel your career with global opportunities

Women’s perspective

We care deeply about fostering a truly diverse workplace. We believe in doing everything we can to make Shell as flexible, appealing and supportive a place for women to work as possible. And we've retained our title as a top employer for women in the Times again in 2017.

We help with things like our formal (and informal) flexible working. Like our global and transparent pay policies backed by a leadership team fully supportive of our diversity ambitions. And we'll help foster your career through our Women's Career Development programme and our extensive Women's Network.

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.
