Business Dev Manager - Hydrogen
If you are keen to make a difference in the Energy Transition for Shell and our customers, this may be the right opportunity for you. Shell Hydrogen is looking for a Business Development Manager to develop clean hydrogen opportunities in Canada.
Where You Fit In
Shell regards hydrogen as the enabler for deep renewable energy penetration, distribution and system resilience while at the same time contribute to the decarbonization of the “hard to abate” sectors (certain heavy industries and heavy duty road transport for example).
Shell Hydrogen is a standalone business in Renewables and Energy Solutions (R&ES) and is fast growing in order to develop the business and deliver opportunities. The evolved hydrogen strategy has been approved by the Executive Committee and RDS Board in Oct 2020 to develop four business models to supply clean Hydrogen to both mobility and industrial customers through green hydrogen development, blue hydrogen development, a mobility platform and hydrogen exports. Shell needs to be a first mover in order to make and shape the industrial market for clean hydrogen that ultimately creates value for Shell. Canada is a main development hub for Shell, where we are developing a portfolio of Green and Blue hydrogen projects from coast to coast.
Shell Hydrogen cherishes a learner mindset, entrepreneurial attitude and cooperation across teams and lines of businesses. We work closely with Sector leads within RES and DS businesses, Global Renewable Solutions, CCUS, Project & Technology, in-country teams, Policy and Advocacy, and functions to develop customer backed clean H2 industrial value chains.
As the Business Development Manager, you will be part of the Hydrogen Industry organization, and reporting to the Canadian Hydrogen Industry Lead. An essential part of the job lies in coordinating with other Shell teams such as Canadian Energy Transition Team, Shell Energies, Manufacturing, Polaris CCSU, Renewable Power team, and Trading.
