You will be responsible both for your own projects and for supporting more senior lawyers on complex transactions. The position involves a significant amount of liaison with colleagues in other legal syndicates in Shell including Legal Corporate, Compliance and Intellectual Property Services.

The variety of work offered by the role will suit an energetic lawyer keen to further develop a range of legal skills and to obtain an exposure to a range of Shell's core business activities. Some degree of business travel can be expected.
