Trading operator 

Trading operators are responsible for providing deal management post trader execution ensuring that all contractual and operational requirements are fully met. The GOE trading operations team covers crude, products, bio-fuels, chemicals, marine and base oils; as such it plays a major part in the delivery of the targets and objectives. It’s an energetic, dynamic environment where building relationships and a passion for making a difference are key.


The trading operator manages the logistics of a deal to BP's best commercial advantage, ensuring that all contractual and group assurance obligations are met. Trading operators also have a key role to play in ensuring that the front to back process runs smoothly and that valuable data and information is collected, entered and forwarded in a timely manner. This provides support to many other teams within our Supply and Trading business allowing effective management of the business.
