The Role

You get to deliver creative and compelling strategic design projects for Shell, a regional role that plots how the power of imagery and graphic language can drive successful business outcomes.  These will figure prominently in effective and cost competitive creative solutions for Shell’s single most valuable asset, the Shell Brand.  You will be part of a dynamic global community of creative stewards.

The world is changing fast and Shell is changing too – not only to keep up with the external pace, but also to anticipate and shape a different future.  The new integrated Corporate Relations function will deliver value by supporting our strategy and sectoral approach and improving policy and advocacy outcomes. We will bring the outside in and secure and drive Shell’s reputation and values. Drawing on a strong base of professional excellence, we aspire to be best-in-class at achieving integrated outcomes through effective engagement and communication with external and internal stakeholders.

Where you fit in:

As Shell pursues its ambitions towards net zero emissions, the role of the Shell brand will be even more important in continuing to build trust, loyalty and credibility among our employees, customers, business partners and stakeholders.  Design and communication specialists will serve a fundamental role as we develop and deliver award-winning, inspiring and seamless creative projects for Shell businesses to communicate their business goals and activities.  You will be part of Creative Solutions, an in-house creative global enterprise dedicated to one customer: Shell.  Creative Solutions is Shell’s go-to team for integrated content creation, experiential and sponsorship activation.  We are responsible for producing a wide range of creative content, campaigns and events – from delivering innovative virtual experiences to producing world-class, fully integrated campaigns combining film, digital, social, design and print assets.

• Serving as the focal point for design and/or digital project delivery covering coordination with trusted partner agencies, gaining customers’ approval for the concept, budget and over-all project execution;

• You will be the brand custodian implementing design knowledge, standards and processes within the region, including driving compliance with brand and visual identity policies and guidelines;
