Careers - London

BP has three sites in London: St James’s Square, Canary Wharf and Sunbury.

St James's Square

Home to more than 500 people, BP’s global headquarters are in St. James’s Square, a leafy enclave in the historic centre of London within easy reach of Piccadilly Circus tube station.  The site accommodates board and executive management, together with the key corporate and business functions teams.

Our business infrastructure underpins everything we do and our business support teams are integral to keeping our business at the head of the industry. We need people with sound business minds, who are great communicators and who are at their best when working as part of a busy team.

Canary Wharf

Our Integrated Supply and Trading (IST), City-facing functions and Alternative Energy business are based in the 20 Canada Square building in Canary Wharf. 

Canary Wharf is an area of ex-docklands that was redeveloped into a secondary financial centre for London in the late 1980s. It is home to some of London’s tallest skyscrapers and the London headquarters of many of the world’s largest financial institutions.

20 Canada Square is a purpose-built trading and financial office with state-of-the-art technology and facilities. It is one of the only trading environments in the world to operate a 'thin-building' design, whereby all major technology hardware, equipment and data storage is housed offsite. This minimises the building's power usage and carbon emissions, as well as maximizing data protection. 20 Canada Square has received awards for its 'Green Office' initiatives.

Facilities in the office include a BP subsidised restaurant and cafe, 72 meeting rooms, three treatment (first aid) rooms, shower and locker rooms, ample breakout space and views over the Millennium Dome and Canada Square Park.

We look for people with a diversity of skills. Those with expertise in supply and tradingtrading analytics, and trading operations, as well as marketing professionals, IT specialists and a whole range of other professionals make an important contribution to our business here. We look for positive team players with plenty of ambition, along with strong analytical and interpersonal skills. 


Sunbury is to the west of London, around five miles from Heathrow Airport. This is where you’ll find one of BP’s largest office sites, Sunbury Business Park, which is home to 4,500 employees and welcomes over 80,000 visitors a year. Sunbury houses the International Centre for Business and Technology (ICBT) and, from 2014, our Upstream learning centre will be based here.
