Internships… via Shell

THE Shell Technology Enterprise Programme (Step) gives 1,000 ambitious students a chance to boost their CV with business skills earned on eight-week placements at selected small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). This is not about working for Shell, the oil company.Interns collaborate on projects in R&D, business processes and systems, marketing and manufacturing. Completed projects are outlined in a 1,000-word report and entered into a competition to find the Step “most enterprising student” of the year. Previous winners of the title and £1,000 prize include a University of Warwick student who patented a cellophane bag that automatically cleans water for the firm with which he was placed.


Students must be in the second or penultimate year of a full-time degree in any discipline at a UK university. Interns are placed regionally and earn £185 a week (tax exempt). There is no travel allowance.
