IT Project Manager (IRM)

No. of Positions:


Job Description:

If you're a proven IT Project Manager with the interest of building experience in Information Risk Management/Information Security and who enjoys bringing out the best in a team, this role is a chance to help deliver high-profile projects that help Shell meet Europe's growing energy demand, harnessing innovative techniques and advanced tech to develop cleaner energy.

What’s the role?

Life doesn’t stand still here – it’s a fast-paced, challenging and incredibly rewarding place to work. You’ll take care of IT projects throughout the lifecycle – from planning and execution to control and closure. As a senior member of our team, you’ll set the strategy, deciding the governance structures that drive decisions and resolve issues, and defining the success metrics, working closely with business stakeholders.

Being a Shell IT Project Manager, you’ll also proactively analyze risks and rigorously manage scope: if a project is at risk, you know when to escalate, to ensure that we deliver the business benefits on time, on budget and to the agreed quality parameters.

And there is a large people element to it as well. As you manage teams of around 10-20 FTE's you can be sure that you’ll need to build upon your stakeholder management and communication skills to be successful.

What we need from you

It’s an ideal role for someone with a degree (or equivalent) and professional background in IT augmented by considerable IT Project Management experience. That should include leading globally distributed teams and external parties.

  • Professional project management certifications – PMP (ideally) or Prince 2 Practitioner

  • Familiar with and able to adhere to project management methodologies and tools
