Shell - Aberdeen

Working in a close knit team that sits in Exploration and Production, this team is responsible for looking after all rentals for the North Sea assets. This covers an enormous amount of contracts for services such as compressors, helicopters, food, manpower contracts, scaffolding, forklifts, etc.

The opportunity is a project driven role with a focus on technology and process to track material rentals using digitalisation. The position calls for someone with a high level of experience in supply chain projects or contract management, particularly at the strategic and commercial level. Proven ability to run a process improvement project is essential. Project deliverables will include development of management information, providing understanding of buy versus rent decision making analysis, and the successful recording of all material rentals into the preferred technology.

Key to this role will be the ability to work many different stakeholders and the ability to navigate complexities.

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 Don’t worry about it being out of date.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.

  • 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
