It all started in 1987, in a suburb of Johannesburg called Rosettenville. A man named Fernando Duarte invited Robbie Brozin to a humble eatery to try some mouth-watering PERi-PERi chicken. The rest, as they say, is history. Five years later, Nando’s landed in the UK. When it did, we made a decision: to put as much passion into our people, as we do our chicken. That’s because, as extraordinary as it may sound, chicken alone doesn’t make us who we are. It’s the people that make the chicken.

We’re delighted to be running our Return to Work Programme once again after a successful pilot last year. Starting in September 2019, this six-month programme is aimed at anyone who’s taken a career break of a year or more and who wants to re-immerse themselves back into professional life. Why we’ve launched this programme At Shell, we believe we can power progress together if we have a culture where different perspectives are encouraged and considered. Our success in shaping the global future of energy depends on tapping into the broadest possible range of talent. Right from the top, there’s a firmly held view at Shell that diversity isn’t a nice-to-have. It’s at the very heart of the way we work: it enriches our culture, informs our ideas and shapes the connections we make, all over the world. Through engaging work that fits around your life, we’ll help you sharpen your skills, refresh your knowledge and renew your confidence – by the end of the programme, you’ll be well prepared to take your career to the next level. You’ll need to be eligible to work in the UK from September 2019 to March 2020, available to join us in the office for the equivalent of three days a week and have knowledge, skills and experience that align to at least one of the disciplines participating including: IT - (80 Strand, London/ Shell Centre, Waterloo) Exploration - (Shell Centre, London) Upstream - (Tullos, Aberdeen) Contracting & Procurement (Tullos, Aberdeen) Shipping & Maritime – (80 Strand, London / Shell Centre, Highly supportive Your manager will be a valuable source of support from start to finish.
