What we do

At bp, we’re reimagining energy for people and our planet. With operations working across almost every part of the energy system, we’re leading the way in reducing carbon emissions and developing more sustainable methods for solving the energy challenge.

But we’re more than a global energy business, we are also a retailer. We bring distinctive offers and rewards to our customers, opening fresh retail sites and introducing new, leading-edge technology to the market. We deliver high-quality fuels and lubricants that take customers where they want to go – our brands span bp Ultimate, Castrol, Air bp and Shipping.

Who we are

We’re a diverse team of engineers, scientists, traders and business professionals determined to find answers to problems that must be solved. But we know we can’t do it alone. We are looking for people who share our passion for reinvention to bring a fresh perspective, collaborative spirit and challenge our thinking in our ambition to achieve net-zero.

Working across teams and functions, you’ll enjoy access to some of the most talented people in their fields. Equally, you’ll be valued for your skills and expertise. Collective success is rewarded and diversity is highly valued. So we’ll welcome your ideas and opinions, trust you to do your job and treat you with genuine respect and consideration.

Why join us?

bp has a bold new purpose and ambition to achieve #NetZero by 2050, to be wanted instead of just needed and to gain the trust of our global society. As a valued member of our Early Careers Development Program, you will partner with us to shape the future of our organization to achieve these targets.

Our employees are what makes bp great. And we understand that to attract and retain the very best people, we must offer a competitive rewards and benefits package.

When you join bp as an intern, cooperative student or graduate, you’ll benefit from a structured programme of work with real responsibility from day one. You’ll do real work and projects that impact bp, our stakeholders and our customers. The breadth, complexity and value of our organisation mean you’ll get to handle projects that challenge and inspire you. We’ll provide formal and informal training opportunities you need to accelerate your career and build your technical and professional skills.

You’ll experience on-the-job learning, along with developing training to suit your role. And regular one-to-ones will ensure that your development is heading in the right direction.

Plus, there’s a clear network for support and development. Regular interaction with past graduates and bp leaders provides an insight into the various avenues for progression, while our support initiatives ensure everyone is made to feel like a welcomed, valued member of our community.

Additionally, you’ll have access to a highly competitive salary; membership in the bp superannuation plan or a fund of your choice; personal development and training and the opportunity to get involved in a wide range of social activities.
