Downstream Supply Chain

Where you fit in

Trading and Supply Products (TSP) is at the heart of Shell's Downstream business.

TSP has the primary responsibility of managing and optimizing the physical supply chain and creating value through proprietary trading. Our goal is to deliver the right product to the right place on time and maximise the overall margin potential across the different lines of businesses and create value for the Shell bottom line.

Biofuels were introduced in Europe in 2003. As a major refiner, supplier, and retailer of road transport fuels, Shell is required to comply with government mandates by blending biofuels. Consequently, biofuels have become an integral part of Shell’s Trading and Supply business. Biofuels are a high-growth high-value space for Shell. At the same time, non-compliance with mandates is prohibitively costly.

  • Support Bio Channel Optimisers and Regulatory to understand the regulatory framework in each country and deliver close monitoring of Shell’s compliance position.

  • Work alongside Hydrocarbon Dealmakers and Deal Implementers to ensure that contractual commitments related to bio-components (physical fuels and paper) to customers are incorporated into bio-position tracking efforts and reconciled with internal/external counterparts.

  • Interface with Commercial Operators to assure biofuels lifting from suppliers (including Shell Trading Rotterdam and/or third parties) are accurately documented in regulatory reporting towards government agencies/departments.

Tasks performed by the successful candidate, include:

  • Receipt, handling, and storage of biofuels carbon & sustainability (C&S) data from suppliers.

  • Maintenance of bio-content balances required by regulator and certification schemes.

  • Reporting of C&S data (and associated duty-paid transport fuels volumes) to the regulator to comply with mandatory reporting and bio-ticket generation requirements.

  • Reconciliation of bio-ticket and fuels lifting positions with counterparties and bio-obligation towards the local regulator.

  • Preparing for and participating in internal and external audits.

  • The above will assure compliance posture to meet biofuels mandates in Germany and Austria towards national regulator and contribute to the TSP margin (both Shell Operating Companies and biofuels trading books).

  • Provide dataset and elementary analyses that can be leveraged for hedging decision and short-term supply chain optimizations.

  • Support the CO2 emissions trading act in Germany and Austria.

  • Comply with TSP HSSE & Compliance standards.

What we need from you

The incumbent should understand the end-to-end value chain of hydrocarbons and especially the Bio element. Therefore, effective communication with various stakeholders, ability to influence and effective teamwork with internal stakeholder (including optimizer, dealmakers, and operations/finance support teams) is critical.

Along with this, we are looking for candidates with:

  • Good interpersonal skills as the incumbent will deal with customers and authorities daily on behalf of Shell.

  • Knowledge level competency and experience in operations, dispatching, or tax-reporting.
