how we can support your Business

About Pecten

Who are we?

We are a network of highly experienced professionals with deep skills and knowledge that span the energy value chain, from producer to consumer.  We are united by our desire to change the world of energy for the better by applying our experience to accelerate the energy transition.

What do we do?

We help businesses to thrive through the energy transition in the most sustainable and profitable way.  Our guidance and support are good for business, good for customers, and good for society.   We provide support in a range of formats, from short-term consultancy projects, through longer term assignments.  We don’t just guide and advise; we can help you find the expert resources you need for temporary and permanent roles in your company. 

What makes us different?

Quite simply, our huge reservoir of lived global experience equips us to provide you with guidance and support based on real life knowledge.  We know the challenges that you face because we’ve been there, and we know the importance of working with expert partners that you can trust.   Our support is just one click away.

Our Approach

Pecten only works with people who have an employment history with Shell. None of them is working for Shell anymore. We are united by our desire to make the future of energy better. We want to move the world of energy forward, sustainably and profitably. We put our client first, work with integrity, respect and honesty and are dedicated to excellence in everything we do. Pecten is an independent organisation and does not form part of the Shell group of companies.

Working with us is easy: 

1. Contact us and let us know what you need.
2. Your request/job will be advertised to people who have worked for Shell in the past.
3. Any incoming applications will be shared with you.
4. You make a selection.
5. You contract either directly with the successful applicant or contract with Pecten as a “one stop shop”. Whatever works best for you.
6. Pecten receives the upfront agreed fee.

Please use “Request a Consultation” to discuss your needs and how we can help you!
