Degree apprenticeships

“I think bp is a brilliant employer. The culture and the people at the company are incredibly supportive and friendly. It is a massive family, and everyone looks after one another, especially on the early career’s schemes.” Sam Phippen, P&C degree apprentice
“Joining as an apprentice, at first, I did not grasp how much space there was for me to develop and grow within the company. In my apprenticeship I’ve received excellent training and support. I even got the chance to travel to Rotterdam in the Netherlands for an audit I was working on.” Molly Curling, T&S apprentice
