Find your future at BP

Graduate and intern opportunities in engineering, science, business and trading

Developing and producing energy resources that benefit people the world over is our motivation – it’s what drives us. So we’re constantly pushing the boundaries of what’s achievable. Demanding more of the resources we use in an effort to create a more sustainable future.

So as society’s need for energy continues to grow, we rely even more on our vast team of talented individuals who come together and make everything we do possible. From pipeline engineers and automotive experts, to analysts and technicians – everyone plays a pivotal role in our success.

It’s our differences that power us. The experiences, skills and perspectives that make up our team all have their role to play. And when they come together, our future has no limits. And neither does yours.

Our programmes

Geoscientists sending sound waves through the earth to find new oil and gas reserves. Engineers building platforms in the ocean for extraction. Traders anticipating and reacting to changes in the markets. Everyone at BP is laying the foundations for future generations. As a graduate or an intern, you’ll be making a real impact and doing a real job right from day one, while making your mark.

So whether you want to be a business leader, a world-class scientist or a ground-breaking engineer, we have a programme to suit. For penultimate-year undergraduates and postgraduates, our paid internships last for a full 12 months or for 11 weeks over the summer months – giving you a chance to gain valuable insights into how BP works as a business.

You’ll learn a lot as a BP graduate or intern. But most important of all, you’ll start a career path that can really take you places.

Who we’re looking for

At BP, it’s about more than just your academic achievements. We hold your individual attributes and the personal qualities you can bring to our team with just as much regard. Our approach is built on teamwork and respect, inclusion and ambition. It’s this approach that means we can deliver excellent energy safely. And it’s these values that you’ll share.

Where to go from here

We’ve given you a good idea of who we are, what we do and what we could offer you. But to understand what life as a BP graduate or intern is really like, you need to hear from the people who live it.
