Aberdeen Press & Journal: JOBS THREAT AS SHELL MAKES CHANGES: Shell is shedding thousands of jobs worldwide

Jobs could be hit by moves to streamline an oil giant’s global operation.

Shell is shedding thousands of jobs worldwide to cut costs and Aberdeen could be affected.

Around 300 information technology jobs will go in the UK.

The move is also expected to see a number of finance jobs axed.

In future the work will be concentrated in six global centres.

The only one in Scotland is in Glasgow, where jobs are increasing from 440 to 550.

Today a Shell spokeswoman refused to comment on where staff jobs might go.

She said: “Since 2005 Shell has been simplifying its structure and generating efficiencies.” IT work is expected to be contracted out by the company.

Shell has 108,000 staff worldwide and 2,500 office and offshore staff based in Aberdeen – a number virtually unchanged in five years.

Oil companies have been looking to reduce costs because of diminishing returns in the North Sea.
