Job Description

Help us to lead cutting-edge analytics, driving the focus and strategy of Shell’s human resources. Bring your quantitative and analytical skills to a role where you’ll not only be a key part of our future plans, but able to access a wealth of opportunities to grow your career in a supportive, global company.

Where you fit  

You’ll be part of our results-driven and highly supportive Human Resources (HR) Analytics team, who provide strategic and analytical inputs to senior management, HR and the business, with a focus on supporting decisions on human capital.

HR Analytics has a mission: to identify people-related opportunities and risks by combined analysis of HR data and business data, whilst adding a quantitative perspective to discussions on new and existing HR procedures.

Sitting within the HR Strategy & Internal Communications Centre of Excellence, the HR Analytics team works closely with other HR teams and the business, participating in strategic initiatives and, embracing the latest scientific findings, as well as observing the highest standards of integrity.

What’s the role?

You’re going to be a vital part of a dynamic, cutting-edge team who helps Shell understand the drivers for high performing employees through advanced analytics. In practice, that means you’ll need to be able to anticipate problems and opportunities, and lead by your own initiative when it comes to pursuing solutions, making full use of your intellectual curiosity as well as your ability to handle high levels of ambiguity.

To succeed, alongside your technical expertise, you’ll need to display the kind of people skills that will see you confidently engaging with senior stakeholders, communicating complex technical concepts to non-experts and representing Shell in external academic and professional networks.

You’ll also need to show us how you can work under pressure and within tight deadlines, and naturally possess a keen sense of integrity that’s necessary to work with sensitive and confidential data.

What we need from you

We’re keen to hear from men and women who can call on strong quantitative and analytical skills, in particular hands-on experience in regression analysis and working with datasets. Along with your Master’s degree in a mathematical field such as Statistics, Econometrics, Operations Research or Applied Mathematics, we’d also hope to see as many of the following on your CV:

  • Experience in machine learning and/or natural language processing.
  • Proven consultancy skills, working with senior stakeholders on strategic projects.
  • Evidence of critical thinking skills in formulating hypotheses and interpreting results.
  • Proven problem-solving skills, with a focus on generating insights that drive actions.
  • An ability to communicate complex statistical concepts and output to non-experts in both a written and verbal manner.
  • Proven interest in HR Analytics and Psychometrics.
