About us

We deliver 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, we keep modern life moving.

Today's growing world demands more energy, in new ways, with fewer emissions. As a global energy business, we’re working towards meeting this challenge – producing lower-carbon energy in a safe and sustainable way. Our purpose is to reimagine energy for people and our planet.

From engineers, technology developers and geoscientists to traders, HR professionals and commercial analysts, everyone at bp plays their part in making this purpose a reality. Everyone on our early talent programmes is part of it too. After all, it’s only by bringing diverse people together in one, world-class team that we can succeed.

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

Diverse and inclusive, our culture focuses on teamwork, respect and ambition, as much as on academic achievements. So, right from the start, you’ll have opportunities to build a challenging, varied career whichever stage of the energy lifecycle you’re contributing to. The result is an environment where you can achieve your goals and drive progress, while making a meaningful impact for millions.
