The energy transition to a net zero future requires geoscientists to play a meaningful role in ensuring we can meet the world’s growing demand for energy while striving for an efficient transition. At bp, our geoscientists use leading-edge technology to develop and deliver low emissions, sustainable energy solutions. This includes exploring for and exploiting hydrocarbons as we continue to diversify supply to lower carbon energy sources like hydrogen, geothermal, renewables, CCUS & bioenergy. The energy transition is well underway, and its direction is shaped by geological factors, as well as economic, political, technology and societal considerations.
For this graduate role, we are looking for someone to be part of the Geology team. Geology is concerned with the application of geological principles and techniques to characterise the Subsurface, describe uncertainty ranges, manage risk, and use large amounts of technical data to inform business decisions. Could you be the next geologist to join our team?
Here at bp, the combination of geology and geophysics — as geosciences — delivers a powerful description and evaluation of the subsurface, growing our ability to safely deliver hydrocarbons and develop lower carbon energy sources.
Duties and responsibilities
The precise nature of your role will be defined by your skills as well as the needs of the business, but your duties and responsibilities will include:
• Working on technical and business projects, and supporting your team to find the best solutions
• Helping to maintain performance within your team and for bp as a company
• Building relationships both within bp and with our external partners, collaborating across disciplines, entities and teams to deliver excellence
• Demonstrating drive and dedication through the bp beliefs with an emphasis on safety.
In addition, demonstrable data science skills would be advantageous for any geoscience candidate applying for a role in bp.
To succeed you’ll need a passion to support the energy transition, a willingness to learn, a determination to excel and deliver results, and to be undertaking or committed to further study of a relevant MSci, MSc or PhD beyond a 2:1 bachelor’s degree in geology, earth science, natural sciences, environmental science, maths, and physics.
You should be either:
• in your final year of your degree,
• or already graduated.
In addition, you are required to meet the below degree level criteria:
To be eligible to apply you will need as a minimum:
