Shell Trading & Supply is the principal trading and shipping business within Shell. It is made up of a network of independent companies that trade in their own right, but also leverage the opportunities open to a global organisation by sharing information, advice and best practice.
We trade the equivalent of about 14 million barrels of oil per day - this is made up of crude oil, refined products, chemicals, natural gas, electrical power, biofuels and environmental products. With the skill base and international scope to capitalise on trading opportunities inherent in Shell's asset and market positions around the world, our key trading and marketing operations are based in North and South America, Asia, the Middle East and Europe. Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE) is at the core of what we do at Shell.

After successful completion of the traineeship the next steps in your career will be discussed based on your abilities and interests with the aim to become a successful commercial operator on a trading operation desk.
