Job Family Group:
As an intern you'll get a chance to contribute to and learn about different projects within our digital design teams – giving you end-to-end experience within a modern and pioneering design studio where you can really develop your user experience (UX) and/or user interface (UI) design skills!
Our digital design team is working to humanize digital innovation in bp. We use design to help people engage with our company and with digital technology in new ways, empowering better experiences, safer operations and a more sustainable future.
By joining our team, you will have access to resources from one of the world's largest technology departments and exposure to design projects across the breadth of bp global operations.
About the roles
The five design roles you may be placed in and rotate across if you join in the future on the graduate programme:
Our product and service design experts shape the design aspects of a digital product, covering UX / UI to a website, platform or mobile application. They also integrate and connect all aspects of digital products and services, including design thinking.
If you enjoy writing, storytelling or visual design, working within digital content design is an ideal fit. This team owns and develops content for bp’s digital solutions and tools, including copywriting, content strategy, digital marketing and graphic design (e.g., print, digital, photography and video).
Our designs are only successful if supported by effective research. The UX research team is responsible for and plans research aspects of design and user experience to add valuable insights to design processes. This includes measuring the user experience by collecting feedback, analyzing trends and conducting usability testing.
If design engineering is your future, you’can help define the technology, tools, architecture and engineering for design in bp. This domain combines design creativity with developer skills to complete full-stack design for digital outputs, including pattern libraries, frameworks and mobile interfaces.
Within design operations you will coordinate design projects and support operational delivery. This team plans and performs all design operations and design business engagements with key customers, as well as scopes design requests and studio resourcing.
Successful interns can get the opportunity to rejoin as a graduate on the One Digital Early Careers programme. This is a two-year programme, comprising two 12-month rotations that will provide a range of foundational career experiences and a gateway to an exciting and rewarding digital career!
