The rotational structure of our program provides you with choice which means you’ll be challenged in many different ways – all of which will build your confidence, expertise and experience at pace, giving you the flexibility to eventually take your career in the direction that suits you best. We have designed the programme to enable flexibility, giving you the choice of a development track preference when joining, or deciding and even changing tracks after the first year.

Commercial development track:
Every year, bp invests billions of dollars searching for new sources of energy, supplying our customers with the fuels they need.
You’ll help to ensure we make the best use of our investment. We want you to be in the best position to propose new and creative ways to maximize value. The commercial development track will help you to develop strong commercial acumen which is supported by the different rotations you will undertake.

Other rotations include marketing & origination, structured products and chartering. No matter where you work, all of the roles will offer a challenging experience that gives you first-hand exposure to our trading & shipping activities and will contribute to building your long-term career in the organisation.
