At Shell, some of the planet’s brightest engineering minds are working together to tackle the challenge of meeting the world’s growing demand for energy whilst reducing CO2 emissions. If you have a civil engineering background, this is your chance to play a part in uniquely innovative projects and gain unbeatable experience.

This is a role where you can use your well-rounded skills to really make a difference. A unique opportunity to help provide essential support to operational units, the maintenance department and specific projects at our key manufacturing site at Pernis.

Broadly speaking, you can expect to be lending your expertise and technical support to multiple groups and teams. Whilst you also closely monitor and assure the integrity and reliability of the site’s civil engineering assets, which include steel and concrete structures, buildings, roads, railways, culverts, pipe trenches, coating, refractory and marine structures.

We imagine you’ll have a flair for understanding how to prioritize maintenance and construction requirements, and balance them with meeting business objectives, project deadlines and manufacturing turnarounds. Plus, you’ll keenly develop and implement our inspection and maintenance work processes, ensuring that all our equipment and infrastructure operate according to Shell’s safety standards.

To succeed, you’ll thrive using risk-based methods to identify and prioritise the site’s civil asset management and maintenance programmes, using your initiative to develop processes that balance inspections, preventative maintenance, scheduled downtime and emergency repairs in a cost-efficient way.

More specific duties will include:

  • Liaising and negotiating with operations, maintenance and construction departments on the execution of civil works.
  • Acting as a technical authority in projects in the civil discipline.
  • Advising on and sign off relevant plant changes and projects.

What you’ll need

  • A university Master's Degree in Civil Engineering; you’re either a recent graduate or already have some initial experience on your CV.
  • You’ll need to convince us you have the right blend of engineering and analytical skills to develop and design technical solutions in a broad, complex manufacturing environment.
  • You’ve shown you can successfully process a wide range of information.
  • You’re in your element cultivating relationships and working in diverse teams.
