Here’s a great opportunity to showcase your technical talent and passion for data, and help us transform how we do business. Working in a collaborative environment, with all the career opportunities you’d expect, and the chance to make a real difference to Shell’s performance.

Where you fit in

Shell has been at the forefront of the digital revolution for decades, embracing new data sciences and technologies to transform how we perform right across the company.

You’ll be joining our Statistical Consulting and R&D team, with a focus on delivering capability which brings wide-ranging expertise in statistics and data science to all our businesses, including analysis of data from equipment in Shell’s production assets, financial modelling and forecasting and statistical software development.

What’s the role?

As a Statistician, you’ll be applying cutting edge statistics to digital products, providing technical advice and support, and playing a pivotal team role in areas such as extreme value statistics and spatial temporal statistics.

You’ll be actively leading on small projects, as well as supporting other leaders with the technical aspects of projects. In practice that means you’ll be contributing to the improvement of existing statistical design and analysis processes, making use of networks to promote statistics, and advising on software tool development.

We expect you’ll be the type of person who relishes creative problem solving and the chance to identify new opportunities that match business strategy. A good team player who uses your natural people skills to nurture relationships with stakeholders at a wide range of levels, collaborating with statistics staff and business customers globally.

When your ideas travel, Shell will benefit and innovation will thrive. Shell has a key role to play in helping meet the UK’s growing energy demand, whilst using innovative technologies to develop cleaner energy. We are the largest FTSE 100 company in the UK by market capitalisation, and make a significant contribution to the UK economy. As well as processing 35% of the gas coming into the UK, we serve more than four million customers at our filling stations each week.

  • Evidence of strong technical skills, with direct, hands-on experience in the field of statistics.
  • An awareness of issues in statistics and dependence on data quality.
  • Experience in communicating within business at all levels.
  • Evidence of strong interpersonal, communication, facilitation and presentation skills.
