  • Shell Ship Management Interviews

    Hi guys (and gals)

    I have been offered an interview with Shell Ship management for a deck cadetship

    I was wondering if anyone on this forum has been offered an interview and if anyone on shell can give me an insight on what its like
    being sponsored by them. (Can't seem to find any articles regarding shell)

    Thanks

    I got told shell was a second choice to bp for most. Not my own opinion as I don't know. Just what I was told

      In a nutshell, you'll do exactly the same as the other cadets that with the difference that you will sail on Shell's ships which will be a tanker of some description (Either crude, chemical or LNG) and that if you do well at the end they might give you job.

      Oh, and I wouldn't go saying that if I was a BP cadet....
      I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.....

        Is that so? Going by what I experienced from the open day, there were less shell cadets and an outnumbering amount of BP cadets. So I think there is some truth to that exclusivity that he was on about.

          I sent my CV off back before Christmas and was told they still finalising their recruitment strategy, which would be done at the start of January. Might be making another phone call tomorrow now. I wish I could have gone to the Fleetwood open day, but it was just too far for me from London, had commitments this morning so a day trip up north would've been horrendously long and expensive. How was it?

            I had the same reply which is why I wanted to speak to the shell representative.
            The man said they have only finalized their strategy within the last 3 weeks so if you sent your application before then you would've had the same message as me.

            Fleetwood open day was great in terms of being able to speak to company representatives and cadets under the companies. The cadets also prepared presentations on their sea phase which I found extremely helpful.
            I also had the opportunity to talk to one of the lecturers and he taught me the basics of celestial navigation :L it was pretty cool!

              There was one shell cadet on my course. He and I vied for poll position in the swot/top of the class stakes throughout the course, he'd already got a BSc in Maritime Studies before he started the course, so knowing that, I'd say that Yes, Shell probably do pick and choose their cadets as they please. He was one of the very few people with a guaranteed job at the end too! If Shell are interested in you on the basis of your CV, I wouldn't be too sniffy!

                I'm not a BP cadet nor will I ever be. It was just something I'd heard from a mate who by the way wasn't a BP cadet either

                  Any particular reason why not?

                    I'm sorry if it seemed that way but I'm just stoked that I was given an interview.

                        Because I never applied to either company, nothing against them it's just not the area of work I was most enthusiastic about. I'm not having a dig at any company I was just passing on what I heard to somebody who was asking questions

                            Shell Ship Management operating in UK is offering sponsorship of cadetship in UK colleges to UK and EU citizens only, sorry to disappoint you. They might have a different policy when recruiting in other countries, you should make your inquiries directly with Shell regarding this. Good luck !
