Where do you fit in

Shell’s Legal Strategic intent is to partner with our businesses and functions in the delivery of the organization’s Purpose and Strategy.

The Upstream Legal team in Nigeria, located in Lagos and Port Harcourt, provides a wide range of integrated legal services to the business and functions with operational excellence, supported by a culture that embeds and sustains differentiated behaviors and networked performance.

You will be a key member of the Nigerian upstream legal team accountable for providing legal services (excluding litigation management) to all the Shell companies in Nigeria.  

What’s the role? 

The role of the Legal Counsel (LC) is to provide a wide range of integrated legal advice, support, and related services primarily to Shell’s Upstream business in a proactive, timely, cost-efficient, and professional manner with a view to furthering business objectives and protecting shareholder interests in collaboration with the business and other functions.

The LC will report to and work closely with the Managing Counsel, Upstream Nigeria, and other senior lawyers to provide support on a wide range of critical operational, commercial & related stakeholder issues and projects, and advice on JV Governance, and reputational and regulatory compliance-related issues. More specifically, the role will include:

  • supporting the asset teams in the management of all operational and related stakeholder issues to enable operations.
  • providing legal support in the management of land acquisition and post-acquisition issues, oil spill compensation, and providing legal guidance to the related governance board.
  • Supporting the investigation of Health Safety Security and Environmental related incidents across Shell’s operations in Nigeria, and the Emergency Response team.
  • Ensuring documentation is appropriately drafted to accurately reflect agreed legal obligations, and is in line with Shell’s Control Framework and professional standards.
  • Supporting compliance issues and, if required, delivering mandatory compliance training to the business (e.g. Anti Bribery & Corruption/Anti Money Laundering, Anti-trust).
  • Espousing Shell’s Business Principles and core values of honesty, integrity, and respect for people at all levels.
  • Encouraging and contributing to a team culture of strong performance, and collaboration with an enterprise-first mindset.

Prior exposure to working with the Energy Industry is highly preferred. Beyond that, we are looking for a candidate with:

  • Demonstrable track record as a team player, with strong communication, collaborative, influencing, and facilitation skills.
  • Ability to think creatively and find pragmatic solutions to legal, commercial, and operational issues, within acceptable legal and risk frameworks
  • Good commercial mindset and the ability to handle and prioritize multiple demanding clients
  • Problem-solving and strategic decision-making skills with demonstrated sound judgment in sensitive areas and on difficult issues
  • Familiarity with/experience in dealing with regulatory, commercial transactions, and operational issues in the petroleum industry.
