About bp

bp delivers energy products and services around the world. From finding, developing and producing oil and gas resources, to refining, manufacturing and selling related products directly to customers and on the global markets, they keep the world moving.

Today's growing world demands more energy, in new ways, with fewer emissions. As a global energy business, bp are working towards meeting this challenge – producing cleaner energy, while lowering carbon in a safe and sustainable way. Their aim is to reimagine energy for the planet and everyone on it.

From engineers, technology developers and geoscientists to traders, HR professionals and commercial analysts, everyone at bp plays a big part in making this aim a reality. Young professionals on bp’s early talent programmes have a part to play too. After all, it is only by bringing together diverse people in one, world-class team that everyone succeeds.

bp's internship and graduate programmes give new joiners a platform to contribute, achieve their full potential, and become business leaders, leading scientists or ground-breaking engineers. Their paid 11-week and year-long internships offer hands-on business experience to undergraduates or postgraduates who are about to start the final year of their degree or PhD. Graduates on their two- or three-year programmes get to gain a full range of skills and experience too.

Diverse and inclusive, bp’s culture focuses on teamwork, respect and ambition, as much as on academic achievements. Right from the start, students are offered a real chance to build a challenging, varied career and to contribute at any stage of the energy lifecycle. The result is an environment where everyone can achieve their goals, while making a meaningful impact for millions.

bp is proud to be a disability confident employer. We work with MyPlus who support the 15% of disabled students and graduates applying for jobs, internships and placements. What does this mean? Click here to find out more
