Job summary

BPs Projects Organisation spends around $7 billion of CAPEX per year across a portfolio of 40 - 50 large-scale engineering and construction projects. Being able to predictably execute and continuously improve performance is fundamental to having a sustainable, reliable, outstanding projects organisation. Project Controls teams provide the information that underpins this.
The teams perform a wide range of activities, including estimating, planning, forecasting and cost control, across all stages of the project lifecycle to enable BP to craft and deliver efficient, competitive projects.

Career development in project controls will lead to opportunities to gain professional certification such as Association of Project Management Chartered Project Professional, and Project Management Institute Project Management Practitioner, as well as project controls discipline accreditations.

  • Analysing and forecasting project data and information that drive performance.
  • Building relationships both within BP and with our external partners, collaborating across functions, segments and teams to deliver meaningful work
As part of BP, you will also be able to take part in additional activities outside of your role, whether it be supporting local community initiatives, our BP Business Resourcing Groups and you are given the encouragement and time to participate.


We are looking to hire candidates with excellent numeracy, analytical interpersonal skills and a strong degree in a technical subject, such as engineering or a closely related discipline.
