We are Vivo Energy
We have an unmissable 12-month fixed term opening for graduates looking for their first step on the career ladder.
Our Culture - What we do
Focused on fuelling Africa’s future, we make our customers’ lives easier and their experience with us more convenient, enjoyable and rewarding. We offer high-quality products and services to our customers, setting new standards for safety, innovation and service, wherever we operate.
We are the company behind the Shell brand in Africa. We source, distribute, market and supply Shell fuels and lubricants to retail and commercial customers across the continent.
Our core values are honesty, integrity and respect for people. They underpin all the work we do and are the foundation of our business. We uphold these values in everything we do: they are crucial to our success and growth as a company, and to achieving our vision of becoming ‘Africa’s most respected energy business’.
Whilst we have 2,000 people based in Africa, our team in London is much smaller with around 15 people in the office. This means that you will have far more access to the business than most: from chatting about the industry with our CEO over a lunchtime sandwich to being pulled in to support business critical activity, no two days will be the same.
Joining Vivo Energy as a graduate, you can expect to find a vibrant business environment, where your opinion is valued and the necessary resources are provided to help you produce great results.
High performing leaders will be on hand to support you through coaching and help you grow, with learning opportunities along the way. We believe that working with people from diverse cultures and backgrounds helps to add dynamic ideas and experiences to the mix every day.
We have Friday drinks in the office at the end of the week and every couple of months the social committee will arrange an activity. Recent adventures have included climbing trees at Go Ape, a trip to the races, a wine tasting competition and – given our office spans many different nationalities – a heritage day where we all brought in our national dish which we shared over lunch.
To succeed at Vivo Energy you need to take part, show initiative, make decisions and always look for ways to do things better. We’re looking for people who think smarter, understand our vision and the wider commercial picture, and have an insatiable curiosity about the business: people who want to make a difference and have the energy, professionalism and drive to challenge convention, motivate others and achieve more.
