Are you in? At bp, we provide energy that fuels growth and improves the lives of people across the globe. The world is changing and the energy industry with it – we are committed to being net-zero producers of carbon by 2030 and designing for a more sustainable future. Managing this change safely is a huge and complex challenge for us. Our technologists and designers are at the heart of meeting this challenge. Think of this as a chance to shape yourself, while helping to reimagine energy for bp and for the planet.
About the role As part of our Innovation & Engineering internship program, you’ll enjoy some of the best training and development the industry has to offer. You’ll have the chance to work on a variety of different projects within our digital design discipline – giving you end-to-end experience within a modern and cutting-edge 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.
Day-to-day activities will depend on which of the five design sub-disciplines you rotate across: product or service design, design engineering, digital content design, UX research or design operations.
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 would be 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 oversees 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’ll have an opportunity to help define the technology, tools, architecture and engineering for design in bp. This is a broad and interesting domain, that combines design creativity with developer skills to execute full-stack design for digital outputs, including pattern libraries, frameworks and mobile interfaces.
Lastly, within design operations you’ll have an opportunity to coordinate design projects and support operational delivery. This team plans and executes all design operations and design business engagements with key stakeholders, as well as scopes design requests and studio resourcing.
