How to apply for Shell jobs

People who want to work for the prominent petrol company Shell will need to know where to look when applying for a job. Getting customer service jobs at a Shell service station should not be too difficult. However, getting an offshore rig job with Shell oil will take some time and patience.

Getting a job at a Shell station

Those who want to start their oil career at a Shell service station should simply contact the service station that they want to work at. As these centers often operate on a skeleton staff, they do not generally advertise their openings. Also, people who are in these jobs tend to stay in so it is not likely there will be a current vacancy when the job seeker makes an inquiry. However, generally, the store will take a copy of the job seeker's resume and contact them if an opening comes up. Services stations that do advertise for staff will often advertise in local newsletters as opposed to the national paper.

Getting an offshore rig job with Shell

Getting an offshore job on a Shell rig is much more difficult than working at a service station. This is because these offshore vacancies are very popular due to their high pay. Workers at rigs get approximately $50,000 US dollars for a six-month contract. During this time, they will get free accommodation and food. Job opportunities on an oil rig There are many different types of jobs on a oil rig. Like any regular business, an oil rig needs administrative staff as well as labourers. Also, as the ship is away from home for six months, they will also need staff to do everyday tasks such as laundry, cooking and dealing with medical issues. Applying for oil rig jobs via recruitment agencies Shell does not usually hire for these jobs directly. Instead, they use the services of a recruitment agency. The best way to get in contact with this agency is contact the Human Resources Department of the Shell head office. The staff there will be able to direct applicants to the right recruitment agency. As Shell is a worldwide company, the recruitment agencies they use will vary from location to location. Applicants should be prepared to undergo a credit and background check as part of their application.
