Outpost exists in over 60 locations around the world, almost all locations where Shell has a business presence.

This unique organization is supported by Shell and provides practical, non-contractual information to all Shell people as they face the challenges of international mobility.  You can ask us questions about Life in London so you can make informed decisions,  before you accept the assignment to London. We offer comprehensive information, resources and professional advice based on the collated experiences of expatriate and repatriate families on location on matters relating to relocation, settling-in, repatriation, and for the Shell accompanied partner - advise and networking on career, personal and professional development.

Outpost London helps you manage your expectations before you arrive into London and we are here for you as you settle into your life here, we'll help build your network, and provide you tips to make the best of your time in London, and assist when you plan to leave.
