Graduate perspectives on BP

Welcome to our world

Our work changes all the time – and it’s our people who change it; with engineering firsts, scientific breakthroughs and new ways to do business. It’s an exciting and challenging place to learn, and on one of our graduate programmes or paid internships, you can be part of our global success.

You could find yourself on our fast-paced trading floor or developing hands-on skills and technical knowledge on our upstream and downstream programmes. Equally, you could be developing your talents in a range of business roles. Wherever you join, you’ll work with expert teams who will respect your abilities, and you’ll make a genuine impact as you get the training you need to build a successful career.

What we look for

It takes drive, hard work and talent to do well at BP. But we also value courage, curiosity and an eagerness to learn and get involved. You’ll need a strong academic record too, from the qualifications you gained at school to your continued performance at university. 

So you’ll either have, or be set to get, a good degree in a relevant subject.
