CIMA qualification aligns with Shell Group competencies for employees

Shell Group Plc carried out a survey of CIMA-trained staff, to understand how the qualification’s syllabus aligns with the company’s required competences in its growing business concerns.



In order to achieve this, Shell provided CIMA with the competences it needs for the various roles in its finance function. Out of 42 competences, the CIMA syllabus covered 27, at its basic level, which matched about 65 per cent of Shell’s expectations. 


Key findings indicate that CIMA trained staff are more likely to be externally focused and quick acting. These are two of the five behaviours introduced in 2009 by Peter Vose, during his tenure as CEO of Shell.



In addition, CIMA trained staff are just as likely as the others to be commercially orientated. They also scored highly on ‘value simplicity’ and ‘goal orientated’.The Shell study therefore concluded that the CIMA syllabus could form a basis for delivering high value to its operations.



This is just one of the many case studies that have been carried out regarding the contribution of CIMA trained staff to the viability of businesses operations at all levels.



Management accountants are equipped with a wide variety of skills which makes them highly employable. Their role in the organisation puts them at the heart of the business. By helping people and businesses to succeed, CIMA is the first choice for employers. 



CIMA, the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants, is the world’s largest and leading professional body of management accountants. CIMA supports over 227,000 members and students in 179 countries.

Dear CIMA Nigeria, I do believe you may want to immediately have this advert on this entertainment blog misusing the Shell name taken down immediately. I'm sure you're well aware it provides the intended perception that getting the CIMA designation leads to be well suited for employment in Shell. This advert also gives the perception that Shell is either sponsoring this ad or is an active spokesperson which is not the case. Should this ad still be online in a few hours I will be reporting to the Shell global brand compliance team for investigation. Have not problem with you selling the CIMA designation which is actually rather valuable, but do it on your own merits!

Oh and p.s. there is no such company as Shell Group plc FYI

@Anonymous 6.50am.

The name of Shell has not been misused rather it is being promoted as a great place to work for people with the right skills and competence.

Please stop distorting and misrepresenting facts. Maybe you would have passed across a more positive message if you had clicked the link to the survey on Financial Management Magazine as posted by Linda.

I report it for your information once again - http://www.fm-magazine.com/feature/depth/measuring-alignment.

The link indicates that the post is from a survey of CIMA-trained staff at Shell because sought to understand how the qualification’s syllabus maps to the company’s required competences as reported by Lawrie Holmes.

I see this as a great infomercial providing Nigerians with information on how to get top multinational jobs.

Dear Anonymous 6.50am, did you read through the blogpost without looking at the videos and web links provided?

Shell's name has not been misused here. Rather it has been projected positively and competencies required to work for Shell celebrated.

Yes, there is evidently a survey carried out on CIMA trained and qualified staff working for Shell which indicates that CIMA qualified people are very well suited for employment in Shell. I happen to have a hard copy of that report emblazoned with the Shell Group logo. Send me your P.M.B address to for a copy.

No Shell person was quoted in the story, so your argument that the perception that Shell is sponsoring this publication is created is fallacious.

Your threat about reporting to Shell Global Compliance Team is certainly belated - am sure they picked this up eons ago and are glad it is up and running.

Please Google Phil Sanderson on working at Shell, and the CIMA qualification, and Measuring Alignment which is a report by Lawrie Holmes on this same subject matter. Shell is CIMA partner, and the partnership is global.

Thanks for not having a problem with selling CIMA and its highly sought CGMA designation - after all it is a free market.

PS: I happen to have seen documents with company name - Shell Group Plc, meaning I may have to struggle to trust your opinion.

@ royal priesthood.

Anonymous said...

Please don't sign up for this program to try to get employment to shell it won't work. Just go to the Shell website and apply under graduate recruitment. No cost involved

Anonymous said...

Actually, get into Shell and they pay the cost for the CIMA for you. This will NOT help you get into Shell. Is it good to get? Yes. Will it secure you employment in that company? No

Anonymous said...

Don't do it. Shell will hire you first and foremost based on your experience and or schooling. Same with Mobil, Chevron etc. Qualifications like this is only worthwhile if you also have oil experience.

Anonymous said...

That's exactly the point for your info. It will not be the catalyst that gets you a job in a multinational. I don't want people spending exorbitant amounts of money on a designation thinking once they do it will secure them employment at Shell because it will not. You still need the experience they are looking for, the CIMA is the icing on the cake and cannot replace the cake itself

Anonymous said...

Why mention Shell and not Mobil, BT, BP or the numerous other companies that also are accredited partners. If you know. Shell you should know they are extremely protective of their brand. Point is not to say this is a bad designation, I think it's great and I have it! The point is to stop the perception that getting your CIMA designation will lead to employment in Shell or other multinationals it doesn't hurt but iit certainly doesn't guarantee. I don't want people spending money on false hope. And no pls Google more thoroughly, there is absolutely no "Shell Group plc". Forget outside sources that may be inaccurate, check their website

Anonymous 6.50am and Company is back shooting from the hips and attacking CIMA after failing to hoodwink LIB readers.

I am suspecting de-marketing here and what a dumb way to do it.

There was a survey - a collaboration by CIMA & SHELL on a SURVEY distilling alignment between CIMA curriculum and competencies required to work at SHELL - Which has ingeniously been made public FOR THE BENEFIT OF YOUNG NIGERIANS AND some wet-behind-the-ears CYBER-TROLLS are YELPING and SPINNING things out of context.

I suspect incompetent attack dogs working for competing institutions in the same field with CIMA.

Anonymous & Co, go get a life and dictate only to your children when they come of age.

Anonymous said...

Did CIMA and Mobil, BP or the other numerous partners collaborate on this survey? NO!

Come out n the open with your real motive and stop the gerrymandering like a lost salamander and headless lizard.

The survey exists, it is endorsed by Shell and has been well publicised in other markets - GO HUG TRANSFORMER jo IF IT IS PAINING YOU. CHIKENAH!

Anonymous said...

Lol- Get into Shell and Shell will pay for you. DUMBO trying to ruin things - Please LIBers do not listen to this balderdash.

Getting recognised qualifications which equips you for a successful career in business is what makes the difference between you and thousands of other candidates.

Anonymous campaigning against this post is just BELLY-ACHING. It is a case of CHRONIC BAD BELLE - or you work for an institute offering similar qualifications to CIMA. If so, why not cme out in the open. Yeye dey smell.

DUMBOS say no Shell Group Plc - so what's the entity listed on the London Stock Exchange?

Anonymous the BIG FAT Lying DUMBO - see results of Shell Group Plc as released in January below:

30 Jan 2015

Royal Dutch Shell plc announced its unaudited results for the fourth quarter and full year 2014 on 29 January 2015. Subsequent to making that announcement, a stock valuation error in its downstream operations was discovered. The value of inventories in the condensed consolidated balance sheet, reported as $19,981 million, should be corrected to $19,701 million.

Dear LIBers, do not let DUMBOS without proper knowledge and are also unable to use Google search properly hoodwink you oh. Fishy characters impugning a global research in a LAZY and POLITICAL manner.

I have a strong belief that Anonymous 6:50am is on the payroll of ACCA otherwise he would not be coming on so strong.
Why should this post annoy anyone? Shell, like many other multinationals, will not hire people with less than credible qualifications and they already have tools to measure performance of staff members.
The post is very clear on one thing - and that is - Shell discovered that employees with CIMA qualification perform better than the average employee in the organisation.
Anonymous 6:50am should provide us with contrary information or maintain the peace
