Working in the United Kingdom
Different businesses, different areas – one team
In the UK we’re involved in the safe and reliable exploration, development and production of oil and natural gas. We transport, sell and trade energy products. We develop and manufacture petrochemicals for industrial and consumer goods. We market fuels and lubricants and trade energy-related commodities. We also carry out research into efficient fuels and lubricants and produce low carbon biofuels.
To do all this, we employ some 15,000 people in the UK. Talented men and women from varying backgrounds working in a host of environments including bustling trading floors, state-of-the-art laboratories and offshore platforms. But whatever their role and wherever they work, we enable all our people to thrive by providing an environment that fosters trust and co-operation, as we work together to tackle the energy challenges of today and tomorrow.

Whatever your background, whatever your role, we will invest in you to develop your personal and professional skills in line with your aspirations. The success of our business in the UK and the success of our employees go hand in hand.

Diversity and inclusion
We work as one team, bringing together people from a range of backgrounds whose different perspectives enrich our business. That’s why we value diversity and inclusion.
