Join our team, and develop your early career in a supportive, forward-thinking environment and help us innovate to transform.

Digital graduate programme

As a graduate of the programme, you’ll play a pivotal role in advancing our digitization agenda. You will develop through at least two job rotations and a structured training program. This cross-discipline exposure within your role will help you advance your early career. You’ll have opportunities to increase your technical knowledge and personal capabilities through practical experience and formal training that’s tailored to your needs.


On successful completion of the two-year program, you’ll select your permanent role. This role will be defined by your choice, experiences to date and where you’d like to continue to develop your skills. 


The digital graduate programme offers some of the best training and development the industry has to offer. Typically lasting two years, you’ll have the opportunity to work in two very different teams — giving you the experience of a delivery role and a supporting function. You will push the boundaries of our current thinking and bring your fresh focus and energy to help us innovate and challenge the way we make the most of technology in a dynamic business. You will learn how to implement change, innovate and help us be part of the technology of tomorrow.

Work experience
You will enjoy the best possible exposure to different business segments, plus support and flexibility. Expect real accountability from day one.
Development and training
My Plan is our robust performance management process. Your line manager will help you set clear, tangible objectives and have regular conversations with you that are designed to help you develop and thrive. We actively encourage continuous learning. You’ll gain valuable skills and knowledge through your work experience, your colleagues and a structured learning programme. 
We operate as Onebp and believe that building strong relationships and networks is key to your success. There will be plenty of opportunities for you to make long-lasting friendships and business connections across bp.

This mix of learning, development and broad exposure gives you the best possible start to your career within bp.

Data & analytics

Responsible for building scalable data science solutions in collaboration with Software and Data Engineering teams.  As a part of this, you’ll promote data standards and resolve data management, migration, integration and data quality issues. Your main responsibilities will come in the form of delivering global and/or local data management strategies and plans, resolving data domain issues and identifying opportunities to improve data accuracy and efficiencies. Using data and information analytical tools, you will help to develop prototypes through the identification and extraction of the right data and manipulation of the data into formats. This may involve creating specialist interfaces, transformation routines, or data science algorithms which can be used by data scientists.
