Why BP?

We're leaders in technology, exploration and production. We're one team and we believe that every employee has a part to play in the shift to a lower carbon world   

What we do

Driving the transition

New technologies are helping us to produce more oil, more efficiently from existing resources in ways that we never thought possible before. Modernizing the way we work, we will make all our operations lower-cost and more sustainable. Read some of the stories of how we are trying to put our aspirations into practice.


It’s a competitive recruitment market-place: every company wants to recruit and retain the best candidates in both the professional and student & graduate spheres and BP is no different. But we believe that we can offer every employee something many others can’t – a chance to impact the future of how the world consumes energy.

We’d like you to take a look around our careers site but also take time out to explore some other avenues. For instance, to see the work we’re doing in technology, the places we operate around the world where you could work as an expatriate or our outlook on the future of energy or how we invest in private technology companies to aid us in our aspirations towards low carbon

We believe that every employee has a part to play in the energy transition. It's not just the scientists and enginers working on the big ideas - it's every one of us working together to play a part in the shift to a lower carbon world. To work with us on combating climate change and moving towards a low carbon future. It won't happen overnight - but it will happen.

We want you to help us in making this change.
