What happens to my application after I have submitted it?
You will receive an immediate email confirmation that your application has been received along with details of your reference number. Within two days of sending your online application, you will receive an email confirming whether or not you meet our initial criteria for the specific job you applied for.
If your application meets our initial criteria, you will progress to the next stage of our selection process. You will then be contacted by email or telephone by one of our recruiters to discuss the next steps in selection – likely to include confirmation on whether you have been short-listed for an interview, interviews and verification processes. Your profile will also be retained in our recruiting database for possible matches against future open positions.
We will keep in touch with you regularly so that you fully understand your status for the specific position for which you are being considered.
If your application does not meet our initial criteria, you will not be considered further for that specific job. However, your profile will be kept in our recruiting database. If a match should occur between your profile and future open positions, you will be notified by email and invited to return to our website to apply.
How long will it take to review my CV?
We handle all applications in a timely manner. You will receive an acknowledgement e-mail from BP after you submit your CV for a specific job, and within 48 hours you will be notified whether or not you have met the minimum requirements for the role. It may take up to eight weeks to review your application internally. We will contact you if you are invited for a face-to-face interview. For those who are not suitable for the position, we will automatically keep your details in our system for future opportunities.

How can I verify that my CV has been properly submitted?
Each time you apply for a position at BP, you will receive an immediate confirmation email acknowledging that your application has been received, and all your contact information, profile and CV/résumé are made available to the recruiter handling that position. Within 48 hours you will be notified whether or not you have met the minimum requirements for the role. You will then receive an email indicating the status of your application at each stage and what you need to do next.
Can I submit my resume without applying for a specific position?
You may submit your CV speculatively as our recruiters will search for candidates in our database; however, you stand a much better chance of being considered for a role at BP if you apply to a specific role that matches your skills and experience.
