Our tax team attracts people from many different disciplines, bringing us a range of perspectives
BP complies with the tax legislation in every country and jurisdiction we operate in. We seek to act responsibly towards governments across the world and our  shareholders, by optimizing our tax position and effectively managing any tax risk that we may incur.

Whether you take on a group-wide role dealing with our corporate tax returns, or support an individual business in handling its direct or indirect taxes, BP offers an ideal opportunity to build on your experience of tax planning, accounting and compliance. We’ll give you world-class learning and development to keep your tax knowledge up to date and enable you to follow a flexible, long-term career path in line with your strengths and ambitions. We’ll also welcome your ideas on how our tax function can do things better, faster and more efficiently.


Our tax team attracts graduates from a law, business administration, economics or accounting discipline who have experience in tax-related activities, preferably gained in a multinational or top-end consulting environment. Strong analytical, problem-solving and information technology skills are essential. Our tax team works closely with other functions such as finance, treasury, legal, mergers and acquisitions, information technology and services and human resources, so good interpersonal skills are also vital.
