Graduate programmes

Joining our graduate programme, you’ll enjoy real responsibility from day one and the freedom to choose your own path

Enhancing your knowledge, stretching your skills and gaining real-world experience alongside some of the brightest minds in the industry. This is a three-year rotational programme which let you discover the whole business; from marketing to sales, supply to operations. The challenge programme in Iberia is managed by a governance board who will assess your development and identify the best opportunities for your own development, fully aligned with the BP strategy.


The challenge programme may offer you the opportunity to take responsibilities on field positions. This is key in our rotational development scheme so you’ll understand how the business truly operates. Most of the time, while taking roles within the operations or sales teams, you will have the chance to work from home, but always with a close relation to the main office.


BP offers graduate opportunities in the Downstream sector in Portugal.
