Intern opportunities in Business

Find your future at BP

We’re powered by different perspectives. Together, we’re combining our knowledge, skills and ideas to create a brighter future for energy. Whatever your background – chemist or engineer, technologist or trader – you’ll find a future here at BP.

We find, develop and produce energy resources, every day – energy that’s behind the products that keep us all moving. That’s a challenge we rise to as a team. From creating industry-leading infrastructure to developing new, sustainable technologies, it takes all sorts of people to make our work possible. You could be one of them.

Business internship programmes at BP

If you want to develop a rewarding career in business, a BP internship could be the right choice for you. We offer opportunities in commercial downstream, finance (accounting, reporting and control or planning and commercial), human resources, and procurement and supply chain management. Whatever role you choose, you’ll be involved in live projects and be given real responsibility from day one.

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 new talent to help us. If you want to develop a rewarding career in business, a BP internship is the perfect place to start your journey.

Our internships are designed to help you develop the skills and experience you need to give your career in business the best possible start. You’ll gain a unique insight into our work and experience what an incredible organisation BP is – and what it means to be part of it.

Many of our interns go on to join our full-time graduate programmes, where they continue to hone their expertise, share their opinions and shape the energy industry as a vital and valued member of the team. If you’re interested in excelling in business with BP, apply now.
