Flexible Working Approach

Shell understands the demands of modern life and therefore promotes a flexible working environment. Whether employees wish to train to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, study for an extra qualification or simply adjust their working pattern to facilitate their personal needs; there are generally options available. 

We encourage employees to discuss their individual requirements with their line manager to find the best solution to meet both their circumstances and the business requirements.
