“Shell has been an exciting and friendly journey from day one!” Tan Si Yng, who started in the Shell Graduate Programme in mid-2010, is keen to say this is no exaggeration. “When I got the call from Shell HR, I was just so excited,” Si Yng said. “The call was so prompt: the evening of my Shell Recruitment Day. I told my family first. We were all excited and happy.
“From day one at Shell I was welcomed warmly. It’s a friendly place to work; I enjoy working with the people and different teams in Shell. From the start, Shell outlined opportunities for me to gain professional experience in different parts of the business. That too has been brilliant.” Based in Singapore and currently working in Shell’s Finance department, Si Yng holds a Bachelor of Business Administration with Honours from the National University of Singapore.
Si Yng’s current role with Shell is as Downstream Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Global Business Performance Analyst. “As part of my role, I monitor commercial and financial processes at the heart of our LNG business globally. The ‘Downstream’ part of my title refers to the ways Shell transforms natural gas, for example, into products for sale, like LNG, to our retail and commercial customers.
