Shell London Head Office

The EPF (ERP, Portfolio and Functions) team is responsible for implementing approximately 300 projects a year into Shell’s Downstream Business. These projects include improvements to our Global SAP system and the associated Management Information Systems. The successful candidate will be working amongst a pool of Project Managers focussed to deliver together with their teams a project or a set of related projects to meet identified business needs and deliver business value, within agreed parameters of cost, timescales and quality. This position will lead small-to-medium projects of moderate complexity and risk.

The successful candidate will have experience working within a project environment using waterfall methodology.  They will be required to work with a number of in house systems bringing multiple data sources together using a project delivery framework and portfolio management tool.

Experience in forecasting, financial budgeting and resource allocation are essential.  Someone who has gained experience managing confidential project deliverables and who can communicate effectively with key business stakeholders is critical to be a success in this role.  Due to the nature of the projects it is essential that the suitable candidate is confident operating with complete discretion and in a demanding environment.

The returner may have come from either a mobile and/or digital applications background but will not be required to write any code or develop any of the applications. Someone with SAP experience would be ideal but not essential.  You will also need advanced skills in excel as a minimum.

How to apply:

Submit your CV before 20th May 2019. Don’t worry about it being out of date. We’ll also ask you for a personal statement, or a covering letter attached to the front page of your CV. This helps us  better understand why you’ve taken a break from work, what motivates you, and where you see your career heading in future.

We’ll review all applications and contact our preferred candidates to arrange an initial interview with a recruiter. Next, there’s a second interview, probably in person with the line manager. We’re aiming to communicate the outcome to successful candidates during July.

To apply for any role in the programme you will need to have:

  • Taken a career break for at least 12 months (from the date of applications opening – 15 April 2019)
  • A keen interest in returning to work
  • Be able to undertake the role from September 2019 to March 2020
  • Demonstrate previous experience in a similar field with the required qualifications
  • Provide evidence of right to work in the United Kingdom
  • Work for the equivalent of 3 days per week or more
