Whether you are reporting a giant oil discovery or the latest quarterly results, our employees, shareholders and the general public expect you to get it right
One minute it’s a press story on our assets in Angola. The next, it’s agreeing a public affairs strategy in the UK or completing a webcast aimed at investors. There’s external and internal. Investor and employee. Corporate and public. And we use every channel imaginable from videos and magazines to corporate reports and presentations. But what unites all the communication functions across our organisation, is the need to build relationships that support BP’s business priorities. And, when the business covers six continents and everything from oil exploration to transportation and conservation, communications has to be a powerful and effective resource – one that operates as efficiently and economically as possible.
About Communications careers at BP
Some assets aren’t found in wells and can’t be seen by even the most sophisticated imaging technology. Reputation is one of those assets. At BP we believe our reputation is our future. That’s why what we say about our business is so important. You could be working on an internal communications project to launch a new global IT system. Or, you could be in a different country dealing with high-profile issues like our carbon policy or announcing our new biofuels strategy to the international press. Whatever you do, one thing is certain; BP has to reach audiences at locations everywhere in the world. From web to print and video to photography, Communications cover many channels addressing issues that are complex and vital to the world’s future. And, as fuel becomes harder to find and our technology more and more advanced, there will be a constant stream of new developments and agreements that we’ll need to report on. To do this we need to train and retain the best talent. This is a key part of our strategy for success.
