HR Graduate

The future of global energy needs you.

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 all its resources, including human resources.

Our HR professionals, recruit and retain people who can keep us ahead of the global energy challenge. They also develop world-class training programmes, build capability and anticipate our demand for new skills.

Ultimately, supporting our people’s development and doing the right thing is what makes BP one of the industry’s best workplaces.

About the opportunity

As an HR graduate, you’ll split your time between two exciting roles which could be business-facing or in a specialist area. This will enable you to build a broad range of experience across our global business.

Our three-year graduate development programme will push you to take on real responsibility from day one. You’ll gain broad exposure to the HR challenges we face every day at BP and will develop both your technical and behavioural skills through a variety of courses. During your time here, you’ll be guided every step of the way by an experienced mentor and a graduate-level buddy. Additionally, we’ll also provide you with support in achieving your CIPD qualification.

By joining our excellence programme, you’ll build a great understanding of the HR subdisciplines. What’s more, you’ll be able to move roles every two to four years, and this could include relocating too.

Your future at BP will be filled with many other further development opportunities. Maybe you want to become a business-facing generalist or be in a leadership role. Whatever path you choose, we can offer you a very rewarding career.

About you

You’re a graduate with a 2:1 degree or above, in any discipline (or equivalent). A team-player with the confidence to step straight into a business-facing role, you’re curious and have an interest and understanding of the industry.  

When it comes to our graduates, we welcome those who show us the leadership abilities that we see in ourselves.


If you’re ready to help us improve the future of global energy, apply now.
