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.

Trading graduate programmes at BP 

The supply and trading business is the commercial face of our organisation – it’s where we buy and sell energy and transport resources to customers. And as one of the leading traders of oil and gas in the world, it’s an impressive operation. Success here relies on astute insight from analytics experts, spot-on strategy and market tracking from commercial teams and decisive, informed action taken by traders. It’s more than a complex, fast-paced and demanding place to work. It’s a place where talent, teamwork and a supportive environment come together to make it an exceptional area in which to build your career.

Within our trading division, we offer opportunities in many teams including analytics, commercial, technology and trading itself. And whichever area of our trading business you join, you’ll broaden your horizons and expand your knowledge on a journey that will see you work with inspirational people and develop with comprehensive training. By the end of your rotational 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
