Find your future at BP
At BP we're striving to meet growing global demand for safe, sustainable and affordable energy. That means creating a more efficient, streamlined business that makes the best possible use of its resources. So together, we can lead the way to a lower carbon future.
We're evolving every part of our operation to transform the way people connect, work and make time to think - all while welcoming new, diverse talent to keep pushing our ideas forward. From finding, developing and producing oil and gas resources to refining, manufacturing and selling related products, we all have a role to play in keeping the world moving.
Business graduate programmes at BP
Our scientists and engineers do an amazing job of sourcing, extracting, moving and refining gas and oil across the world, but this is just the start of the product journey at BP. There are contracts that need to be negotiated, regulatory compliance that needs to be met and sound investments that need to be made. We need to analyse, interpret and act upon financial data and, of course, we need to market and sell our product - and we're always looking for exceptional graduates to help us.
We offer opportunities in many teams including Commercial Downstream, HR and technology. You could manage $1bn of BP's cash, recruit and develop top talent to drive the company forward or manage a global portfolio of customers, consumers and partners. Whatever programme you join, you'll develop through our comprehensive training, work with sharp commercial minds and make a real impact on the business by guiding our strategic planning. By the end of your programme, you'll be amazed by how far you've come. And as exhilarating as all this may seem, it will just be the start of your BP experience.
Who we look for
Because we offer such a breadth of opportunity, you could come to us with a good degree in a range of subjects. Our online degree matcher will help you find out where your skills could take you at BP.
Wherever your talents and aspirations lie, we expect a high level of academic achievement. But every bit as important will be the individual attributes and personal qualities you bring to our team.
Our whole approach is built on working together, being consistent and having the courage to do the right thing. All of which is underpinned by a commitment to safety and excellence in what we do. It's essential that you share those values.
Duties and responsibilities
The precise nature of your role will be determined by your skills as well as the needs of the business but your duties and responsibilities will include:
- Working on projects and supporting your team to find the best solutions
- Helping to maintain performance within your team and for BP as a company
- Building relationships both within BP and with our external partners, collaborating across functions, segments and teams to deliver great work
- Demonstrating drive and commitment through the BP values with an emphasis on safety.
