Shell in Germany
Shell is a global group of energy companies with more than 85,000 employees in 70 countries. Shell’s presence in Germany stretches back over a hundred years. Around 3,500 members of staff ensure that each day over a million motorists can fill up at Shell service stations in Germany, airlines are supplied with aviation fuel, shipping companies with marine lubricants, and industrial customers with petrochemicals or natural gas, for example. Shell is engaged in the production of oil and gas and operates Germany’s largest refinery in Cologne for processing crude oil, which is currently transforming to a Chemical and Energy Park. The Shell Technology Centre in Hamburg is one of the leading Research & Development facilities within the international Shell group. Here you can find out more about our operations in Germany.

Shell’s aim is to help meet the world's growing demand for energy in a responsible way by providing more and cleaner energy solutions. Therefore, we are exploring emerging opportunities and investing in those where we believe commercial value is available. Among others, we focus on new fuels for transport, such as advanced biofuels, hydrogen and charging for battery-electric vehicles.

Our Graduate Programme is a rigorous development framework of specific competences, business-critical capabilities, and critical experiences that will enable you to become a competitive professional by the end of your 3-year programme.
