Supply and trading is BP's face to the traded markets in oil, gas, power, emissions, chemicals and finance. Its role is to enhance performance and maximize group value for our assets through distinctive supply, commodity trading, risk management and information technology, underpinned by a world-class finance, control and compliance infrastructure.
Wherever you join us, you’ll be part of a unique, diverse, multi-national organization which will give you exposure to both supply and trading. Our trading environment is different because it’s not part of a large financial institution. Yet it’s one of the largest in the world and has hubs in London, Chicago, Houston and Singapore.
