for a media relations professional to forge more ‘proactive’

communications with international media. The newly-created post, based

in Shell’s London offices, will be second in line to head of media

relations Eric Nickson.



The chosen candidate will ‘safeguard and enhance’ Shell’s reputation by

briefing international media on company operations and policies.



The decision to appoint another media relations expert is believed to

stem from the barrage of negative media coverage last year over Shell’s

activity in Nigeria and the disposal of the Brent Spar oil platform.



Shell is looking for someone with at least five years experience of

London-based media and experience of organising news conferences,

briefings and interviews.
