Our talented individuals explore, develop and produce oil and natural gas

bp spends over 40% of our total research and development budget – some £175m a year - in the UK, channelled through our three major technology centres in Sunbury, Pangbourne and Hull.


Britain is home to some of the world’s leading academic institutions and we are proud to work with over 20 British universities on leading-edge research. In 2012 we committed more than £60m to research the new materials needed by the energy industry of the future, founding the bp International Centre for Advanced Materials with Manchester University, the University of Cambridge and Imperial College London.

Our North Sea offshore operations are vital to bp’s UK business.  We need people both now, and in the future, to ensure we can maintain and enhance our North Sea operational performance. Oil and gas industry experience is not a prerequisite, but if you have a relevant trade discipline and suitable operational experience then a technician role could be for you
