Job summary

The One Digital Early Careers programme supports bp’s up and coming pipeline of digital talent. Digital Early Careers become part of a diverse, global digital community who are helping to lead bp through the energy transition, to provide reliable, affordable and lower carbon-energy to the world and achieve net-zero.

For graduates, the One Digital Early Careers programme is two years, comprising two 12-month rotations within a dedicated digital discipline. This provides early careers with a breadth of experience and the opportunity to build technical depth to apply to the most complex problems of the future.

Choose to join bp and you’ll be on the front line of the energy transition to net zero carbon, collaborating with world-class technologists, engineers, and disrupters to reimagine energy and carve out a career packed with purpose, passion, and learning.

Digital Science and Innovation (DS&I) applies leading edge digital capabilities to the energy transition challenge. Our measure of performance is the business adoption of new digital technologies. Although relatively small, DS&I is world class in reach, processes, activities, and results. It works with external organizations, from academia, start-ups, and big tech companies, and consequently operates across the full context of external digital and business innovation. Examples of the range of frontier technologies we work with include AI, robotics, quantum, distributed ledger, and digital twin.

At bp, we support our people to learn and grow in a diverse and exciting environment. We believe that our team is strengthened by diversity. We are committed to encouraging an inclusive environment in which everyone is respected and treated fairly.
