Job Summary:

As a bp HSE& Carbon Intern, you’ll have a great opportunity to find out more about how the HSE & Carbon teams (HSE&C) provide support to our global operational sites or projects, potentially including specialisms in environmental, sustainability, carbon/methane, risk, and process and operational safety areas.

Job Description:

The safety of our sites, the well-being of our people and our impact on the environment are absolutely fundamental to our business. These foundational principles are critical as we reimagine energy for people and our planet and work towards our ambition to be a net zero company by 2050 or sooner.

Health, safety, environment and carbon (HSE&C) cares for and protects our people and planet from harm. HSE&C covers all businesses throughout bp from offshore production facilities, to wind and solar farms, global networks of retail sites, and many other exciting ventures. Our ambition is to lead by example in partnering with everyone to deliver solutions that reduce risk and eliminate harm.

Roles and responsibilities ​
The precise nature of your role and project will be determined by your skills as well as the needs of the business but your responsibilities may include:

  • Working with teams to strengthen their safety culture
  • Making sure risk is systematically and proactively managed by ensuring alignment and compliance with policy, standards, regulations and statutory requirements.
  • Getting after our net zero, biodiversity, and sustainability aims
  • Looking for continuous improvement or long-term project opportunities across risk, HSE&C systems, and learning.

Are you ready to ignite your potential with bp!

During your internship you’ll be a member of one of our HSE & Carbon teams, which means placing bp’s health, safety, environmental, and sustainability priorities at the centre of your work. As part of this team, you should have a passion for problem-solving, systems thinking, and a care for people and the planet.

You’ll get continuous feedback and guidance on how to plan and deliver your project, along with advice on what to look for and who to talk to. You’ll also be encouraged, individually and together with your Intern peer group, to find out as much as possible about other teams, disciplines and operations to broaden your understanding of the bp business

What does the future hold?

If successful to complete the internship we may offer you a place to return on the one-HSE&C graduate program. This is 36-months in length and offers 2 18-months rotations. The first rotation will provide a broadening opportunity to build your foundational health, safety and environmental skills, in support for one of our operational sites, projects, or businesses. All this hands-on experience will be backed up by a program of structured learning, coaching from mentors and ongoing feedback and development. The second rotation may allow you to work in one of our global teams specializing and further developing your skills in sustainability, operational or process safety, or risk.

Minimum Requirements

To apply for this role, you’ll need to be on track for a 2:1 degree, or equivalent, in environmental sciences, environmental engineering, process safety engineering, occupational safety, sustainability management, or a related subject.

You must be either:

- in your penultimate year of your degree, or;

- your final year but continuing to study a separate master's course.

  • You will need to be geographical mobile and willing to travel to any of our UK offices or sites.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Masters degree in related subject
  • Bachelor’s degree from an ABET Accredited program or other program that tracks towards Certified Safety Professional (CSP) or designations.
